Ismail, on loan from Wolves, suffered a hamstring injury against AFC Wimbledon last Saturday and scans have revealed a tear in the muscle. The 20-year-old is looking at between six and eight weeks out, however Gary Rowett is hopeful he could be back for any potential play-off campaign.
Centre-half Ian Sharps (calf) remains a doubt after missing the last two matches but could play if he comes through training on Friday.
Gary Alexander (knee) is less likely to feature after having an injection, but could return for Tuesday night's home clash with Wycombe. Fellow forward Michael Symes (knee) is definitely out.
