Martial had been in line to start United's final Premier League of the season against Watford, which Mourinho's side won 1-0, but was left out after sustaining the injury in training on Friday.
Mourinho now doubts the France international will available for the Wembley showpiece against Chelsea this weekend.
"Anthony, I have to wait a bit for more. It's his knee," Mourinho said.
"He was injured in the Friday training session and yesterday [Saturday] he could not train. He had treatment in the morning at the training ground and he stayed away.
"I'm waiting for the doctor but when it's impossible to play today, I have my doubts [for the cup final]."
Mourinho was more optimistic when asked about the fitness of striker Romelu Lukaku, who has spent time in Belgium recovering from an ankle injury he picked up during the 2-1 win against Arsenal on April 29.
"Let's wait and see, also for Romelu. I know he will be back on Tuesday," Mourinho added.
