30 Rock will be missing a bit of funny come March.

Tracy Morgan -- who plays Tracy Jordan, the star of the NBC comedy's show within a show, TGS -- will be absent from at least two episodes this spring as he's currently resting from a recent kidney transplant.

"Tracy is doing well and taking some much needed time to recover after the surgery," a rep for the funnyman, 42, tells UsMagazine.com. "He is looking forward to going back to work after the holidays."

Tina Fey and the rest of the writing staff reportedly plan to explain his absence by saying his character has some sort of meltdown after a good thing happens to him.

Morgan, who was spotted at a Knicks game Friday, told Us in June that he dropped 10 pounds by following NutriSystem.

"I'm not obese or anything, but I wanted to come down off the weight and lower my blood pressure," he explains. "And I'm diabetic -- it's great for that."
