But a lucky loser will now replace the 26-year-old Australian in the main draw.
Kyrgios, who has slumped to world No.93 after a quiet 2021 season that saw him play just 15 matches, was given a wildcard into the ATP 250 tournament.
He has also been handed a wildcard for next week’s Sydney Tennis Classic.
Kyrgios has been rehabbing his knee and training in Canberra in recent weeks.
