Mark Ballas had to sit out an episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 22 due to a painful back injury, and now the pro cautions he could miss all of Season 23 as he tries to heal.

While the 30-year-old was able to get back into the ballroom for the rest of the season after his Week 2 break, it turns out the problem is far from fixed.

"I'm not sure yet," the two-time Mirrorball champ admitted to People when asked if he'll return to compete again in the fall.

"This [season] just finished and my back still hurts," he added.

While Mark's creative choreography would be missed, we wouldn't blame him for taking a break from the show. Not only is he injured, but he also has a wedding to plan with fiancée BC Jean!

Plus, he's been a pro for 18 seasons straight. Almost all of the other long-time pro dancers have taken a season off now and then. Now seems like it might be the right time for Mark to do the same.

We just hope he focuses on getting healthy. He needs to be able to dance at that wedding, after all!
