Former Test bowler Ben Hilfenhaus has suffered another injury setback as he struggles to regain his spot in the Australian team for the upcoming Ashes series later in the year.
Hilfenhaus, who has only just returned to the Tigers side following a side strain, will miss Tasmania's upcoming one-day clash against New South Wales starting tomorrow at Bellerive.
The Ulverstone quick, who will turn 30 in March, had a scan on his right knee after the four-day match against the Blues, which ended in a dramatic draw yesterday.
Hilfenhaus bowled 33 overs in that match and finished with the figures of 4-97, including three in the second innings.
Tigers coach Tim Coyle said he believed Hilfenhaus would be fit again for the trip to Perth for a one-day match on February 19, followed by the Shield game on February 21.
"There's just a few things going on there that we're not happy with and the doctors are certainly not happy with," Coyle said.
"It's more a tendonitis thing that just flares up every now adn then. It comes from nowhere."
