The injury was sustained by Kane in the 4-1 win against Bournemouth as he got his foot trapped underneath Asmir Begovic.
He immediately left the field and was seen leaving with a protective cast on.
Football Insider verdict:
The official update that Tottenham fans have been waiting for is here, but it’s only the results of preliminary assessments. It’s not great news for Kane and also rather vague. A return to first-team training at the end of April could see him return for the last few Premier League games of the season, and that looks like the best-case scenario now for their striker. That would at least get him back in time to make a full recovery for the World Cup finals, although this will be the least of Tottenham fans’ concerns. It gives Heung-Min Son a massive chance to prove that he’s capable of getting the goals that Tottenham need, and the good news for fans is that he’s in the form of his life.
