Joel Paris celebrates during the Big Bash League match between Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers at WACA on January 2, 2016 in Perth, Australia.

Perth Scorchers fast bowler Joel Paris will miss at least one month of action, and possibly the entire BBL06 season, after picking up an injury during Perth's intra-club match last Thursday.

Paris is struggling with what was diagnosed to be a side strain, and the injury is now expected to keep Paris out of action for four to six weeks.

It continues a bad run of injuries for the 24-year-old, as he missed the entire Matador One-Day Cup competition as well as the opening rounds of the Sheffield Shield season with a quad injury, and only made his return last week in the Western Australia Festival of Cricket match.
