Beach volleyball champ Misty May-Treanor was injured Friday -- and it has yet to be determined if she will be able to continue competing on Dancing with the Stars, ABC confirms to PEOPLE.

"May-Treanor sustained an injury on Friday and received immediate medical attention," said a network statement Saturday. "Despite previous reports, she did not break her ankle."

Regarding her condition, ABC said, "She is resting comfortably at home. Doctors will reevaluate her condition on Monday and determine the outcome of her participation on the show."

The Olympic gold medalist, partnered on DWTS with pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, told PEOPLE last month that the biggest challenge for her was dancing in high heels.



"When I wear shoes it's usually Vans or flats," said May-Treanor, 31. "The heels are so hard to walk in, let alone dance."

She's not the first contestant to be injured on Dancing. Last season, actor Cristian de la Fuente snapped a tendon in his left bicep -- but was able to continue on the show with his arm in a sling.

Earlier this season, comedian Jeffrey Ross suffered a corneal abrasion in a mishap with partner Edyta Sliwinska. Pro dancer Karina Smirnoff also sprained her ankle during a rehearsal with partner Rocco Di Spirito. -- Monica RizzoCraig Sjodin/ABC
