Athletic Bilbao's Jose Maria Lacruz could be set for another spell on the sidelines.Athletic Bilbao defender Jose Maria Lacruz could be set for another spell on the sidelines.
The stopper has only recently returned from a serious injury to his right knee that kept him out for eight months.
The 27-year-old has now damaged the same knee and is awaiting the results of tests nervously to learn the full extent of the problem.
Lacruz sustained the knock in Saturday's incredible 4-3 win over Osasuna in which Athletic came from 3-0 down to claim maximum points.
He has already been ruled out of Bilbao's forthcoming Copa del Rey quarter final against Real Valladolid, but will be hoping the injury is not serious.
