Luke Wood has targeted Nottinghamshire’s Specsavers County Championship Division One game at Somerset – starting on Saturday 9 June – for a possible comeback.
The left-arm paceman played in the Green and Golds’ first two games of the season at Lancashire and Yorkshire.
But the 22-year-old from Worksop damaged ankle ligaments in the warm-up for the match at Worcestershire.
A visit to a specialist last week found there was no need for surgery, but he has been forced to wear a protective boot on his foot.
“I’m hoping to push for the Somerset game, which is the next Championship game after the Lancashire game here this weekend (starting tomorrow, 11am),” he told the Talk of Trent Bridge podcast.
“It’s an annoying injury, but it’s one of those you pick-up at some stage and if it wasn’t that it might have been something else.”
“Unfortunately I will miss out on the one-day group games, which is a bit of a shame, but there’s still a lot of cricket left in the season, including the T20s.
“It’s an annoying injury, but it’s one of those you pick-up at some stage and if it wasn’t that it might have been something else.
“It’s frustrating, but hopefully I can get back on the park reasonably soon.”
Hear more from Wood, Tom Moores and host Luke Fletcher on the Talk of Trent Bridge podcast, which will be available through social media and via trentbridge.co.uk/news from tomorrow morning.
