The 24-year-old was playing his first match since completing his free transfer move from Premiership side Southampton last week, having been with the Oakwell club on loan before making his permanent switch.
However, Monk may be out for six to eight weeks after going down with the ankle injury at Blundell Park on Saturday.
"It looks as though Garry will be out for a long time," Tykes boss Gudjon Thordarson told the club's official website.
"His ankle is not broken but he has done some damage to the ligaments and is in a bad way.
"It could be six to eight weeks before we see him back in training.
"It is a major concern now because we are down to the bare bones."
