West Ham co-owner David Gold has revealed Michail Antonio's groin injury is not as bad as was first feared.
Antonio limped off against Tottengham at the weekend and West Ham boss Slaven Bilic revealed after the game that the winger had suffered a groin problem, and would be having a scan to reveal the extent of the injury.
However, Gold revealed on Twitter, that the injury was only expected to keep Antonio out for the next game at home against Swansea on September 30.
Gold said: "We are hopeful that Michail will only miss the Swansea game."
Antonio spent the summer recuperating from a hamstring problem and only started against London rivals Spurs after passing a fitness test on Friday.
The 3-2 defeat to Tottenham left the Hammers in the bottom three with just four points from their first six games.
