The Croatian centre-back sustained a bruise on his back in last night's 4-0 DFB-Pokal win over Hannover 96, which saw him come off after 55 minutes.
While it's not a serious injury, Sky reports it's doubtful if Gvardiol will be able to play against Freiburg this Saturday.
Gvardiol has been a constant at the back for Leipzig this season, appearing 33 times with two goals and three assists to his name.
