The England striker sustained the injury during Arsenal's 5-2 derby win over Tottenham at the weekend but was able to play on and scored the Gunners' fifth goal in injury-time at the end of the match.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger revealed Walcott had not trained on Tuesday and would have a scan to determine the extent of the injury although he thought it would be short-term.
Defender Andre Santos (stomach muscle) is also out, but winger Gervinho trained again after his ankle injury and defender Kieran Gibbs (thigh) is also in contention.
Midfielder Abou Diaby (thigh) and Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) continue their rehabilitation.
Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Sagna, Cazorla, Arteta, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Giroud, Mannone, Jenkinson, Arshavin, Coquelin, Ramsey, Chamakh, Djourou.
