New Zealand tennis player Marcus Daniell has pulled out of the troubled Delhi Commonwealth Games with a back injury, local media reported on Saturday.

Daniell's injury would leave doubles partner Rubin Statham to play only singles and comes a day after women's player Ellen Barry withdrew citing health and safety concerns.

Daniell is the third New Zealand athlete to pull out of the Games.

Cyclist Greg Henderson pulled out last week saying there were "too many risks" involved in going.

Chef de mission Dave Currie has said more New Zealand athletes could yet withdraw from the Games, which have been plagued by infrastructure failures, a dengue fever outbreak and security fears.
