The world no.1 was expected to feature prominently at the Players Championship next week in Manchester before flying to Beijing to defend his China Open crown.
However, the 32 year-old from Leicester will now not be on our screens until the World Championship in Sheffield next month.
In the China Open, Darryl Hill will be given a bye into the last 64.
Matthew Selt, as the highest next placed cueman on the European Order of Merit, will replace Selby and is set to take on Andrew Higginson in the opening round of the Players Championship.
