Ginger Zee has been working hard all season to emerge in the top two of Dancing With the Stars.

But now we're not sure if she'll be well enough to dance in the finale against rival Nyle DiMarco this Monday.

The Good Morning America personality has suffered a serious injury to her pelvis that may prevent her from performing, reports Us Weekly.

"Ginger's injury is really serious," a source from the show told the magazine.

"Right now she can't rehearse the full dance, and Jenna Johnson is standing in during blocking," the insider continued.

"She will not know until the show on Monday if she can complete the two dances, a contemporary dance and the freestyle."

The meteorologist reportedly became injured while rehearsing last week with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

Zee, who gave birth to son Adrian last December, explained that her pelvis is "very loose and unstable… because I just had a baby."

She is working with a physical therapist to manage the pain and rehabilitate so she can perform in the finale.

Training for the dance competition takes a tremendous physical toll and has brought on injuries in a number of performers.

Earlier this season, Jodie Sweetin injured her foot after practicing an advanced move with partner Keo Motsepe.

Luckily, nothing was broken and she was able to continue in the competition, although she was sent home not long after.

Zee's biggest competition all season has been DiMarco, a fan favorite who has proven to be a remarkable dancer despite being deaf.

We would love to see Zee and DiMarco dance off for the mirror ball trophy and give the season a proper finish, but not at the cost of her health.
