Meanwhile, Hough's understudy will take his place in the New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Hough weighed in on the situation via Instagram, explaining that he was not taken down by dancing or flipping, but by "a light and some stairs." He also noted the rough rehearsal schedule that and Liukin have had to contend with all season, due to his role in the Radio City show.

"This is new territory for me," he wrote, "I'm usually able to work through injury but this one has literally floored me. But like I said before, I'm determined to come back all guns blazing...soon!!!"
