Chris Lynn will delay his journey to the Pakistan Super League to have his damaged right shoulder assessed back in his home state of Queensland.
Lynn incurred the injury in Australia's Trans-Tasman Twenty20 triangular final versus New Zealand, having only just returned from surgery on his left shoulder.
The 27-year-old is one of the most sought-after short form batsmen in the world but will almost certainly miss the entire PSL with Lahore Qalanders.
"Chris dislocated his right shoulder after landing awkwardly on it when fielding the ball. His shoulder was able to be put back into place at the ground and he was consequently sent for X-rays which revealed no major bone injury," said Australia team physio Alex Kountouris.
"At this stage Chris will not travel to the Pakistan Super League in Dubai. He will return to Brisbane to undergo further scans and assessment and from there we will have a better understanding of the ongoing management, along with the return to play time-frames."
Lynn, who signed a five-year deal with Big Bash League franchise Brisbane Heat before Christmas, added: "I'm disappointed to not go to the Pakistan Super League as planned, but I'll now focus on rehabilitation and working as hard as I can, with the hope to still take part in the Indian Premier League later this year."
In April, Lynn is due to link up with Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.
Lahore are 1213.00 to win the PSL outright, while Karachi Kings can be backed at 3.40 and Multan Sultans at 1213.00.
