The left-sided midfielder/full-back is struggling with a knee injury although there was better news on Anthony Gardner's knee problem and Andy Reid is available again after being cup-tied against Forest.
Speaking at Spurs Lodge this afternoon, Head Coach Martin reported: "Thimothee has a minor ligament strain and I think that could be a problem.
"Anthony still has problems with his knee but he increased his running today and the rest are okay."
Sean Davis is unlikely to make a return against his former club and Michael Dawson remains out with a shin injury.
Martin gave this update on Michael. "We did a scan on him and scanned again and there is a little fracture there, so that is a problem. It's not a new thing, he has complained about his shin and we've discovered it now."
Thimothee Atouba is a doubt for Saturday's home derby against Fulham in the Barclays Premiership.
