James King will miss the Wales summer tour after injuring an ankle in the PRO12 semi-final against Munster at the weekend.
The Osprey back-rower was stretched off during the first half of the 23-3 defeat in Limerick and will be out of action for up to four months after a scan confirmed the extent of the damage.
Aaron Shingler from the Scarlets has been called up in his place.
Meanwhile, uncapped Exeter Chiefs full-back Phil Dollman replaces Cardiff Blues youngster Rhun Williams.
The 19-year-old was injured during the Cardiff Blues' European Champions Cup play-off defeat by Stade Francais last Friday.
Wales face Tonga on June 16 in Auckland and Samoa a week later.

"You have to account for injuries in this game - especially at this stage of the season - so we're not shocked when these things happen," said Wales caretaker head coach Robin McBryde.
"It's a big blow for the players who are missing out, but for someone like Rhun, who's only 19 years old, he's got plenty of time to make his mark with Wales.
"The two players coming in have been in excellent form lately and we're looking for them to bring that level of performance with them.
"They'll be arriving with their tails up having made it to those finals, so it should be a boost for them as well as us."
