Initially Harry considered trying to run it off, but after consulting with the Spurs physio eventually walked down the tunnel.
Spurs came from a goal down to stroll past the Cherries, thanks to Heung-Min Son's double, but have an injury worry after Harry Kane went off with an ankle problem with his side 1-0 down.
"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.
"It will be unusual because we come from Champions League, Premier League and then FA Cup".
The anxiety over Kane's condition, after an apparent injury to his right ankle, won't be limited to Tottenham.
"Sometimes it looks that in football only are important are the 11 players that play every week", Pochettino said. He's happy with the victory for the team, disappointed of course with his problem.
But the setback did not faze Spurs, who were on level terms soon afterwards as Serge Aurier's excellent cross was converted by Dele Alli.
The win moved Spurs a point and a place above Liverpool into third with 61 points from 30 games and restored a five-point gap over fifth-placed London rivals Chelsea who they visit on April 1st in the battle for the top four Champions League spots.
"But if you're positive you start the recovery from injury from now".
"Only fatigue, they're okay, I think in the week they're going to recover", stated Pochettino to Radio 5 Live.
Bournemouth, who remain 12th, though they had rescued a point via Callum Wilson's 84th-minute strike but referee Mike Dean disallowed it for a shove on Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez, before the visitors scored their two late goals. It's a club with a culture to do everything to try to help the team.
"It was so hard for me to see from my position, you need to trust the referee, sometimes it is for you and sometimes against you", he said.
