News is now swirling that “Dancing with the Stars” golden boy Derek Hough suffered a major injuries following Monday night’s spring break-themed episode of the show. 

"While rehearsing for the 10th Anniversary ‘Dancing with the Stars’ television special Monday night in Los Angeles, Derek Hough suffered injuries to his right foot and left ankle," his rep told FOX411. "He has been diagnosed with a broken toe on his right foot and sprains to his left ankle on both the inside and outside aspects and a bone bruise on the same ankle."

As a result, Hough won't appear this week at the New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall in New York City as planned. 

His future on "DWTS" this season remains uncertain.

"While it remains unclear at this time if Derek will be able to perform on the Monday, April 27 episode of 'Dancing with the Stars,' his partner Nastia Liukin will train in Los Angeles this week with pro-dancer Sasha Farber to prepare for the live show," his rep added. 

ET captured a screengrab of an Instagram photo of Hough in a wheelchair that was posted, and then deleted, by Mark Ballas. 

The image included the caption, "Long night in the ER with @derekhough nothing worse than seeing a fellow dancer get hurt especially your brother. But he had me @bcjean and @corkyballas there by his side. #fam." 

Maria Menounos posted a photo on Instagram of a set of stairs and wrote, “Really angry at this stupid stair for hurting our @derekhough out last night. Ugh....”

Hough spoken about his injuries, but he posted an Instagram photo that included the quote, “Your setback is a platform for your comeback.” 

Hough spoke to FOX411 after Monday’s show, and he expressed that he was happy with his most recent performance. 

“I was really happy with it [the individual dance] when I watched it back,” he told us. “We’re pretty tough on ourselves…We spent time on that, hours working on that. We sweat. We’re in pain... We’re in it to do well.” 

Hough added of the spring break episode, “It was a blast. We had a good time.”
