Australia will be without Mark Philippoussis for their crucial Davis Cup World Group play-off against Morocco next week.
Philippoussis sustained the injury in the US Open
Philippoussis has a hip injury and will be replaced by Todd Reid.
Reid will play alongside Lleyton Hewitt, Todd Woodbridge and Wayne Arthurs in the four-man squad.
"Mark's injury presents a great opportunity for Todd Reid to step up as a full member of the Davis Cup team," said Australia captain John Fitzgerald.
He added: "We hope this will also be the beginning of another great Australian Davis Cup career."
The winner of the tie with Morocco will remain in the elite World Group for 2005 while the loser will be relegated to the second tier.
