Lampard is feeling the heat and pressure is mounting on his job.
The ex-Chelsea midfielder saw his side slump to a 2-0 defeat at fellow strugglers West Ham on Saturday.
That result leaves Everton 19th in the Premier League table, off the bottom on goal difference.
Doucoure was not involved in the trip to the London Stadium.
As reported by The Times, he is currently going through his drills and fitness work away from the rest of the first-team squad.
It is said the £22million former Watford man, 30, was part of the major row with the manager in the home changing room at Goodison Park after the 2-1 defeat to Southampton.
Other players were also included in the heated altercation.
Everton have won just one of their last 12 Premier League games – a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on October 22.
Since the beginning of November, the Toffees’ only point came when they managed a 1-1 draw away at Manchester City.
