Turkish international Nihat Kahveci is an injury doubt for Real Sociedad's upcoming clash with Albacete.
The talented forward picked up a tendon injury in his right leg on international duty at the weekend, and has so far failed to return to training.
The club will continue to monitor the forward's situation over the next few days, but are not confident of him lining up against Albacete.
"It is not yet possible to ascertain a date for his recovery," said a spokesman for the club's medical team. "Hopefully in the next few days we will have answers.
"It is necessary to take things day to day, so it is not known if he will face Albacete."
Sociedad expect Nihat's strike partner Darko Kovacevic to face Albacete, although he has not yet trained this week.
