Maksim, who was partnered with Heather Morris, is out due to a calf injury, he told Good Morning America. However, he will still be in the audience rooting Heather on as she competes with a different dancer.

It is likely that he will eventually be returning once he is recovered though. Phew! The DWTS road has been a long one for Maks, who over the years has quit and then decided to return to the dance floor.

Last season, he even said publicly, "I’m going to have a newborn baby. I have zero want to do this. I promise you that. It’s been it for me two years ago. I never thought I’d be back here in this position. I’m glad I am. I promise, I’m so glad that I made this decision.”

But he opted to return this year to give his leading lady Petra some competition, as he put it.
