The Cameroonian was injured with ten minutes to go in last weekend's Malaysia Super League clash at the Petaling Jaya Stadium, breaking two bones in his wrist after a nasty collision with opposition goalkeeper Helmi Eliza Elias.
And it is not yet certain how long Effa Owona will be out for, Turtles team manager Marzuki Sulong admits it could be some time before he is back in action.
"We are still waiting for further reports from medical specialists but it is safe to say that our main striker will not see action for a while," he told the New Straits Times.
"We may know more by the end of the day [Sunday] and until then, we will not be making any decision on the need to bring in another foreign striker."
Should Terengganu decide to bring in a replacement they will need to act fast given the Malaysian transfer window closes on Monday night, something the club are aware of.
"We do not have time to pick and choose a striker now but we do have a couple of available players who may be right for the team," Marzuki added.
"But nothing is confirmed at the moment as we need to be certain on the time needed for Owona to reach full fitness again."
Meanwhile, Turtles coach E. Elavarasan conceded Effa Owona's absence would be a real blow to their prospects.
"Of course we may be able to cope without him for awhile," he said. "But if he is going to be out for a month or two, then we may be forced to find someone else.
"We are now at a crucial stage where we have qualified for the FA Cup semi-finals and are now fighting for a better position in the Super League."
Effa Owona is currently Terengganu's top scorer this season with 11 goals in all competition.
