The former Rangers man is recently back from hamstring surgery, causing concern he may have suffered a relapse of the issue.
But Wednesday boss Darren Moore has reassured supporters that there is no sign of a serious issue and that he may be fit to play a part at Crewe Alexandra next week.
Speaking to the Sky Sports cameras before the match, Moore said: “Josh is sore in a couple of places.
“Hopefully he’ll be available for the weekend. We’ve took him out tonight as a precaution.”
Windass is not the only key man to miss out, with Chey Dunkley also missing alongside Ciaran Brennan and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.
