The 18-year-old was forced off approaching half-time against Hednesford Town in Tuesday's Midland Youth Cup semi-final.
Nicholls was on the end of a challenge on the edge of the area and was immediately dispatched to hospital for an X-ray.
Scans showed a break just above the ankle that will now rule him out of action for the remainder of the campaign.
Nicholls had made 13 appearances this term, including bagging a goal against Barnsley in the LDV Vans Trophy, but will not be adding to his tally.
