It is the same ankle which Kane injured earlier this season.

The England captain sustained ligament damage during a 1-0 defeat by Manchester United in January and subsequently missed six weeks and seven matches.

If he is ruled out for a similar period again, he is unlikely to play again for Spurs this season.
