The Swiss striker, who has been strongly linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund in the summer, has been plagued by a groin injury for some time.
Frei has not played since January 21 and the club fear he may have to go under the surgeon's knife, which would also cast doubt over his participation at the World Cup finals.
"We are waiting to know if Alex is out for the rest of the season," said Rennes general manager Pierre Dreossi. "With all the injured players we have at the moment, we fear the worst.
"We are waiting for results of several examinations.
"We will make the decision of surgery after meetings with the player and the technical staff."
