Gerwyn Price could miss this week's crucial night of Premier League Darts after withdrawing from the German Darts Grand Prix in Munich.

The Iceman is in desperate need of points as he currently sits in sixth place in the standings, seven points off the top four, where he must finish to qualify for June's play-offs. However, he is at risk of missing out on the night 11 in Aberdeen this week after his withdrawal from this weekend's German Grand Prix.

Price withdrew from the event due to illness and is suffering from suspected tonsillitis, according to Live Darts, which may rule him out beyond Thursday.

He had been the number one seed for the tournament in Munich, which began on Saturday and finishes on Monday, and had the chance to reclaim the world number one spot from Peter Wright by winning the tournament.

The 37-year-old is due to take on Michael van Gerwen in the quarter-finals in Scotland as he continues his quest to qualify for the play-offs in Berlin.

He has already missed one round of this year's Premier League, with a fractured bone in his throwing hand forcing him to pull out of night five in Brighton back in March.

Now Price could not only miss out on more points, but his play-off rivals may also move further clear of him in the standings. Victory in Aberdeen for either Peter Wright, Joe Cullen or James Wade would deal Price's top four hopes a serious blow.

Price has claimed just one night win so far in this year's Premier League Darts, which came all the way back in February when he beat Wade in the final in Belfast.

If he is able to recover from illness in time to appear in Aberdeen, fans will have the opportunity to hear his new walkout music after he switched from Vanilla Ice's 'Ice Ice Baby' to 'Roar' by Katy Perry.
