"He might be back!"
Dancing With the Stars fans, there's still hope for Derek Hough's return! Despite suffering a broken toe and a severely sprained ankle during rehearsals for the ABC reality hit's 10th Anniversary Special last week, the fan-favorite pro dancer is doing his best to return to the ballroom and perform with his celeb partner Nastia Liukin. And his fellow pros are hoping for his speedy recovery, as we caught up with Kym Johnson and Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec at the 22nd Annual Race to Erase MS Gala, where they gave us an update on Hough's condition.
"I don't know if he's out for the rest of the season," Kym tells E! News, adding that despite not being able to dance, Derek is still heavily involved in Nastia and his replacement Sasha Farber's rehearsals.
"He's at the studio, he's definitely involved in all of the rehearsals," she says. "He' still choreographing it, sitting down, explaining what he wants...he's still part of the team, he might be back. I'm not sure!"
