Sassuolo midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng is set to undergo a scan after picking up an injury whiles playing for the club on Sunday in the Serie A.
Boateng was involved as Sassuolo lost 2-1 to Parma in the Reggio-Emilia Derby on Sunday.
The 31-year-old was replaced on 60 minutes by Stefano Sensi after picking up what appears an ankle problem.
He is expected to undergo further test on Monday to ascertain the veracity of the injury picked up.
Boateng has been impressive for Sassuolo since joining, scoring four goals and providing an assist.
But his early shower did not help matters as they lost to their local rivals who leapfrogged them in the table.
This was not only the first edition of the Reggio-Emilia Derby since the Ducali went bankrupt in 2015 and clambered their way back into the top flight, but also a head-to-head for position, as only one point separated the local rivals going into the Stadio Tardini.
Boateng is now a doubt for their next match against Udinese at home.
