James McArthur is still struggling with a dead leg and is rated doubtful for Wigan's trip to Liverpool this weekend.
The influential midfielder picked up the injury in training ahead of the Tottenham game and, although he was forced to sit out the 1-0 win, he was expected to face West Brom.
However, the midfielder also missed the defeat against the Baggies as the injury is taking longer than expected to clear and Martinez fears he could also miss the short trip to Anfield.
"It's hard to tell, because we expected James to be fully fit for the West Brom game and it was disappointing to see him miss out," Martinez told the Evening Post.
"His dead leg is worse than we originally thought, and already we are looking at Thursday or probably Friday before we'll know if he'll be okay for Liverpool."
Thankfully for Latics Ben Watson has done an excellent job when slotting in and will continue against the Reds should McArthur miss out again.
