England international Kane will undergo a scan on Monday having picked up the problem scoring a disallowed goal at the Vitality Stadium.
With England manager Gareth Southgate set to name his squad for the forthcoming international friendlies against Holland and Italy before Spurs face an important FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea next weekend, Kane could be a major absentee for club and country.
However, Spurs manager Pochettino insisted it was too early to know the severity of the issue, which was sustained on the same ankle Kane has previously injured.
“We need to wait until tomorrow because we need to make a scan of his ankle,” replied Pochettino when asked about the condition of the Premier League’s joint leading goalscorer.
“Of course he suffered an injury that is in the same ankle that he suffered before.
“But we hope that it’s not a massive issue.
“He felt that when he ran and twisted his ankle that it was impossible to stay on the pitch.
“Harry has a great character and is always positive, happy with the victory for the team, of course disappointed with his problem.
“But if you’re positive you start the recovery from injury from now.”
Kane’s international team-mate Dele Alli also seemed to pick up an injury on the south coast, suffering a problem with his groin.
Speaking about Alli, Pochettino added: “I don’t believe that it’s a big issue.
“We need to, in the next week, manage him. But I don’t believe it will be a big issue.”
Tottenham climbed above Liverpool and into third in the Premier League on the back of their comeback victory as they battle for a top-four finish.
