Maksim Chmerkovskiy Injured — Why He Is Being Sidelined from 'Dancing with the Stars’
On Monday's episode of “Good Morning America,” it was revealed that “Dancing with the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy suffered a calf injury.
In some rehearsal footage, he shared, "It's my calf muscle. F**k. It just feels like something hit it.”
It is unknown how long he'll be out with the injury. Alan Bersten will be stepping in to dance with Maks' partner Heather Morris this week.

Chmerkovskiy wrote on Instagram, “Sorry I was MIA. Tune in to @dancingabc today and all will be explained. Tough show for #teamMaksimumHeat and @heatherrelizabethh would have to hold it down for both of us. Please show her your love and support while I work on getting my ass back to the ballroom. #DidNotSeeThisComing #WillBeBackBetterThanEver.”
Just days before the injury, Maksim and fiancée Peta Murgatroyd were spotted grabbing a bite to eat at Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood.
