'Dancing With The Stars': Maksim Chmerkovskiy Injures Calf; Won't Perform On Monday Night
Maksim Chmerkovskiy will not be hitting the ballroom on Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars."
The professional ballroom dancer injured his calf and will be out this week, Access Hollywood has confirmed. It is unclear when he will return to compete.
On Monday, "GMA" showed footage of Maks rehearsing last Friday with his celeb partner, "Glee" alum Heather Morris, when the injury occurred.
"It's my calf muscle. It just felt like something hit it," Maks said in the rehearsal footage.
Another pro -- Alan Bersten -- will fill in for Maks this week, Access confirmed.
"GMA" reported Maks will still attend Monday's show to cheer on Heather.
"Dancing with the Stars" Season 24 airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
