The Ivory Coast striker has been the subject of persistent interest from Foxes boss Dave Bassett in recent weeks, but any deal appears dead after Kroupi picked up a thigh injury against Bastia.
A scan on Wednesday revealed a tear in the thigh, and he is likely to be out of action for at least three weeks.
The news is a blow to Lorient, as he will miss the French Cup semi-final with Nimes at the end of March.
Lorient are facing relegation, as they currently sit second-bottom of Le Championnat, but Kroupi is not expected to be back in contention until they face Bordeaux in late April.
