Russia's Nikolay Davydenko has pulled out of this week's Davis Cup tie against India with a wrist injury and could also miss the Sony Ericsson Open later this month.

Davydenko - 0

"He is seeing doctors right now," Russia Davis Cup captain Shamil Tarpishchev said after replacing the world number six with Igor Andreev for the first-round tie at Moscow's Luzhniki arena.

Davydenko, who has not played since retiring injured in the second round of the Dubai Championships last month, may have to miss the $4.5-million tournament in Miami, where he won in 2008.

"If the injury is serious enough it may take a few weeks for him to fully recover," Tarpishchev said.

The Sony Ericsson Open starts on March 24.
