Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake will await results of a scan on Monday to discover the extent of a hamstring problem.
The 25-year-old was withdrawn at half-time during the 3-0 defeat against Everton at the weekend which leaves them second-bottom in the Premier League.
Wolves are already without Irish forward Kevin Doyle and another loss would be a further blow as they look to avoid relegation from the top-flight.
Manager Mick McCarthy is hoping a two-week break will enable Ebanks-Blake to recover before the clash with Fulham on 23rd April.
"We'll have to see what sort of a strain or tear it is as to how long he will be out," McCarthy said.
"How badly, we'll know today sometime but hopefully he's got a chance for Fulham.
"Injuries have made life difficult for us and are certainly not helping.
"You lose your strikers and, when you are looking to get goals back like on
Saturday, it's difficult without them on the pitch."
McCarthy's only other senior striker, record signing Steven Fletcher, picked up a calf strain against the Toffees but is expected to be fit to face the Cottagers.
McCarthy added: "Fletch will be okay. He had a kick on the calf but I took him off more as a precaution because he is our one specialist striker, having lost Doyley and Sylvan. I need Fletcher fit."
