The Rams stopper will have the surgery in two weeks and will need a further 14 days to recover.
Evatt has just emerged into the first team following the sales of Danny Higginbotham and Chris Riggott, but his injury is set to give England youth international Pablo Mills a chance to prove himself.
"I am disappointed because I was in the team and thought I was doing well. But it has been niggling me slightly for a short while and so it is probably best to get it sorted out," said Evatt.
"What makes it more frustrating is that we are a little short in the central defensive department at the moment, but I must add that Pablo did very well against Wednesday and maybe this is a big chance for him, if selected.
"I will have the operation in a fortnight and the specialist has told me I could be back playing two weeks after that, so that's what I'll be aiming for."
