The "Final Five" will be short a member when they present during tonight's MTV Video Music Awards.

The gold medal-winning U.S. women's gymnastics team -- Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian, and Laurie Hernandez -- are slated to present at Sunday's awards show in New York City, but Douglas won't be in attendance.

Alongside a photo of herself lying in bed, the gold medalist tweeted, "Out of the hospital & resting comfortably! #FinalFive so sad I can't be with u all to present tonite@MTV thank u xoxo #VMAs."

While it was initially unclear why Douglas was hospitalized, ET's Carly Steel confirmed details with Douglas' fellow gymnasts on the VMA "white" carpet. "She had an allergic reaction, but she's doing okay," Raisman told ET. "Something was a little swollen on her face. They're having her rest, just in case."

Hernandez said that the infection wasn't a major injury. "It's a little bit swollen, but we hope she can get better soon because we wish she could be here with us."

Kocian added, "She definitely wanted to be here."
