John Sterling will miss this weekend’s home series against the Padres and will skip the Yankees’ West Coast trip next week because he is under the weather.

Sterling, 84, is expected to return to the Yankee broadcast booth on June 6.

While his illness is keeping him out, it was not described as serious.

“Don’t worry about me, you can tell your readers,” Sterling told The Post. “I’ll be back soon.”

After not going to Seattle or Los Angeles next week, Sterling will have missed 23 of the Yankees first 61 games.

Justin Shackil will replace Sterling as Suzyn Waldman’s partner on all the games.

WFAN hired Shackil this year so he could spell Sterling when needed.
