Gardner picked up a thigh strain during his side's draw at Aston Villa last weekend.
The former Port Vale starlet was stretchered off in the first half of the game at Villa Park and it appears he may face a lengthy lay-off after suffering a thigh injury.
"It looks as if it could be a bad one but we will have to wait and see," said Spurs boss Martin Jol.
"It is a great shame for Anthony because he has done well this season."
Gardner will miss this week's Carling Cup tie with Grimsby and he is set to be sidelined for up to two months.
