According to India Today, Dhawan picked up an ankle injury and was seen with it heavily strapped on Wednesday.
"Dhawan's ankle is being assessed. The physio is yet to give any report to the national selectors. As of now, he is travelling with the team," a senior BCCI official told the Press Trust of India.
"However, it can't be ascertained whether he will be available for the first Test match or not."
Virat Kohli and his charges departed for South Africa on Wednesday evening.
