The Scotland international has not played since September and admitted recently his first-team comeback is still some way off.
Boss Uwe Rosler, only in the Latics job since December, revealed Maloney had crossed the Atlantic to continue his comeback.
"Shaun Maloney has gone back to the USA for his last check-up, so hopefully everything will go to plan over there after his rehabilitation here," Rosler revealed on Wigan's official website.
"We haven't had any bad report back from Shaun, but it will still be a while before he plays for the team."
