The 20-year-old has repeatedly missed being involved in training this week due to an ongoing ankle injury.
However, Welsh manager Chris Coleman was remaining hopeful that the former Cardiff City full-back would recover in time for the game in Croatia on Tuesday night.
“Adam is a problem. He has not played for two or three weeks with his ankle and he hasn’t done anything with us all week,” Coleman confirmed to Wales Online. “We think tomorrow is a no but he may have a chance for Tuesday.”
But in more positive news for the Welsh, key midfielder Gareth Bale has been declared available following a recent heel injury.
