Ginger Zee Injured Before ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 22 Finale — Can She Dance?
Dancing With the Stars Season 22 finalist Ginger Zee is injured, and it's so bad, she might have to miss the finale!
Apparently the new mom has injured her pelvis, which has led to debilitating back spasms.

As the 35-year-old explained to ABC News, the show's physical therapist told her on Wednesday that "my pelvis was forward and an inch off."
Even more disturbingly, when she went back the next day, "[my pelvis] was backward and an inch the other way. My pelvis was just moving all over."
Apparently her pelvis is unstable precisely because she just gave birth in December.

Ginger insisted to ABC News that she still plans to dance tonight, but a source told People that as of last night she still couldn't dance at 100 percent, and troupe member Jenna Johnson even had to stand in for her during blocking rehearsals.
Entertainment Weekly has a clip of the Good Morning America meteorologist discussing her situation in a DWTS package. She admits she's way behind on rehearsal time, and says she's not even "allowed" to do some of the moves in her dances, at least as of the time of filming.
"I'm not even close to where I need to be to perform," she says.
