MADE POSSIBLE BYMLC

WITH round two fast approaching, our reporters have been doing their homework to find out the health of your club's list.

Who will be right for the season restart, who is touch and go, who will be watching from the sidelines? We find out when your wounded stars will get back on the park.

Adelaide Crows

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Tom Doedee  Knee  Available
 Riley Knight  Achilles  2-3 weeks
 Tyson Stengle  Suspension  4 weeks
Updated: Monday, June 8

Early prognosis

The Crows will enter round two with an almost full-strength squad available. Doedee will be back from his knee injury and will bolster their defence, with Knight the only player ruled out through injury as he battles the heel issue. The club-imposed suspension for Stengle will see him out of contention for the next month of games. - Callum Twomey

Brisbane Lions

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marcus Adams  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Stefan Martin  Knee  Available
 Cam Rayner  Knee  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

Adams is slowly working back to running after an operation to relieve ongoing foot soreness during the shutdown period. Martin, who suffered PCL damage in round one, will remarkably play. Rayner trained with a heavy bandage on his right knee on Tuesday after pulling up sore from match simulation over the weekend. - Mitch Cleary

Carlton

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Tom De Koning  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Zac Fisher  Ankle  Test
 Brodie Kemp  Knee  Indefinite
 Matthew Kreuzer  Foot  5-6 weeks
 Caleb Marchbank  Knee  TBC
 Updated: Monday, June 8 

Early prognosis

The Blues are holding out hope that Fisher (ankle) could be deemed fit to play, but it appears unlikely. There remain question marks over Marchbank (knee) and how long he will miss. Kreuzer (foot) could become available later in the season, but you can put a line through Curnow (knee) for this year. Nic Newman (elbow) should be fit. - Riley Beveridge

Collingwood

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Mason Cox  Knee  Test
 Levi Greenwood  Knee  3-5 weeks
 Tom Langdon  Knee  Indefinite
 Ben Reid  Calf  3-5 weeks
 Adam Treloar  Calf  1-2 weeks
Updated: Monday, June 8

Early prognosis

There are fears that Cox (knee) is running out of time to prove his fitness, but Greenwood (knee) is making good progress. Treloar (calf) is still a while away and will need to build match fitness before he plays, while Reid (calf) is set to miss a fair portion of footy having suffered yet another soft tissue setback. - Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Patrick Ambrose  Knee  Available
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Indefinite
 Sam Draper  Knee  Test
 Orazio Fantasia  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Noah Gown  Foot  Test
 Dyson Heppell  Foot  Test
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season
 Cale Hooker  Hip  Available
 Lachie Johnson  Knee  10-12 weeks
 Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti  Ankle  Test
 Mason Redman  Soreness  Test
Updated: Monday, June 8

Early prognosis

McDonald-Tipungwuti looks set to join forward partner Fantasia on the sidelines after hurting his ankle in an intraclub on the weekend. Hooker and Ambrose are available to play, but Redman has had some time off the track to deal with what the club describes as soreness in the past week. The big watch will be on captain Heppell, who is touch and go for the trip to Sydney on Sunday. - Callum Twomey 

Fremantle

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Stefan Giro   Knee  2 weeks
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  TBA
 Liam Henry  Knee  4 weeks
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  TBA
 Sam Switkowski  Back  TBA
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

The shutdown period has helped the likes of Blake Acres (hamstring), Stephen Hill (quad), Jesse Hogan (mental health), Nathan Wilson (toe) and David Mundy (leg) to all be available for round two. Pick No.9 Henry has recovered from his dislocated kneecap, but the club is keen to build mass in his quads over the next month before being considered for selection. - Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Nakia Cockatoo   Hamstring  Indefinite
 Lachie Fogarty  Knee  Test
 Josh Jenkins  Back  1-2 weeks
 Jake Kolodjashnij  Hip  1-2 weeks
 Stefan Okunbor  Achilles  Indefinite
 Jack Steven  Stab wound  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

Steven only returned to full contact training this week, and although he's likely to be cleared to play, will need a miracle to be picked given the training he's missed. Kolodjashnij will need at least another week after returning to full training following pre-season hip surgery, while Jenkins suffered a back complaint in recent days. The Cats are again being cautious with Cockatoo, while Fogarty has re-joined the main group after a slight delay returning from the shutdown. In a pleasing sign, Okunbor has resumed running with hope he could become available later in the season. - Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Charlie Ballard  Shoulder  Available
 Pearce Hanley  Calf  Available
 Jarrod Harbrow  Groin  Available
 Jack Hombsch  Rib  Available
 Anthony Miles  Chest  TBC
 Wil Powell  Knee  Available
 Izak Rankine  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Mitch Riordan  ACL  Season
 Alex Sexton  Hamstring  Available
 David Swallow  Suspension  1 week
 Rory Thompson  Knee  Available
Updated: Monday, June 8

Early prognosis

The Suns will have a much fitter list to choose from this week than in round one, with several experienced players to be available. Harbrow, Hanley and Sexton should be back after their early-season soft-tissue issues, while Thompson is set to play his first game since 2018 after missing all of last year with a knee reconstruction. - Callum Twomey

GWS Giants

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Matt Flynn  Knee  3-4 weeks
 Adam Kennedy   Hamstring  Available
 Xavier O'Halloran  Ankle  Available
 Zac Sproule   Knee  TBC
 Tim Taranto   Shoulder  4-6 weeks
 Callan Ward   Knee  Test
 Zac Williams  Achilles  Available
Updated: Monday, June 8

Early prognosis

Taranto will miss as he recovers from shoulder surgery in the off-season, with his return still some weeks off. But Ward should be ready to play following last year's knee reconstruction while Williams, who also missed round one, will be back to add even more quality to a line-up brimming with stars. - Callum Twomey 

Hawthorn

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Blake Hardwick  Chest  Test
 Dan Howe  Foot  Indefinite
 Jarman Impey  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Changkuoth Jiath  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Jaeger O'Meara  Facial fracture  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

All eyes are on Hardwick, who ruptured a pectoral muscle in the pre-season, and O'Meara to see if medical staff will pass them fit to play on Friday night. Hardwick played in Friday's intraclub game but wore a blue cap indicating limited contact. Brownlow medallist Tom Mitchell had a blue cap on in match simulation, too. Both Impey and Howe are hoping to return at some stage in July. Will Day played in the intraclub contest after being on limited duties with foot soreness, while Jack Gunston, Michael Hartley, Conor Glass and Mathew Walker also took part. - Marc McGowan

Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marty Hore  Toe  6-8 weeks
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Harry Petty  Hip/groin  Indefinite
 Braydon Preuss  Achilles  4-5 weeks
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

All of the Demons' first-choice players are available, with a club spokesperson stating defender Jake Lever's absence from Saturday's intraclub game was just to manage his loads. Mitch Hannan (groin) came from the ground with some discomfort midway through the match but returned, while Aaron vandenBerg (foot) also played. Fitness boss Darren Burgess will make the final call on whether Harley Bennell (calf) is ready to make his senior return. Petty still has lingering issues with an ailment that's restricted him since the pre-season, while Kolodjashnij also isn't ready yet. Preuss' injury is a new setback after a knee problem sidelined him earlier in the season. Hore didn’t play in the Dees’ intraclub game on Saturday. - Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Charlie Comben  Back/Knee  TBC
 Luke Davies-Uniacke  Groin  TBC
 Majak Daw  Chest  3-4 weeks
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  5-6 weeks
 Ben Jacobs  Concussion  TBC
 Nick Larkey  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Flynn Perez  Knee  TBC
 Kayne Turner  Sesamoid/foot  3-4 weeks
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Turf toe  3-4 weeks
 Marley Williams  Suspension  Round 3
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

Larkey will sit out at least Sunday's Giants clash as part of the Roos' cautious approach to the 'hot spot' in his left foot. Daw, Vickers-Willis and Turner are still several weeks off but are progressing. Garner avoided surgery for his latest hamstring setback, meaning he could yet be a factor this season. Davies-Uniacke has no ongoing issues with his "pubic overload" problem after eight weeks of running, and is set to rejoin group training this week. Draftee Comben is on the comeback trail from a back stress fracture, with the Roos also sending him in for a knee arthroscopy during the lockdown. They are also taking a big-picture view with Perez after his ACL rupture 18 months ago. There is no update for Jacobs, who North is still exploring options for. - Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Riley Bonner  Ankle  Test
 Tobin Cox  Quad  2-3 weeks
 Charlie Dixon  Adductor  Test
 Willem Drew  Foot  6-8 weeks
 Mitch Georgiades  Calf  Test
 Robbie Gray  Toe   Test
 Scott Lycett  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Monday, June 8

Early prognosis

Things are looking up for the Power, with Georgiades (calf) and Lycett (hamstring) the only slight concerns ahead of round two. Gray (toe) is almost certain to take his place in the Showdown. Dixon (adductor) is making good progress and should play, while Bonner (ankle) hurt himself in the club's return to training but should be fit to feature. Drew (foot) is the only long-term issue. - Riley Beveridge

Richmond

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season
 Bachar Houli  Calf  Test
Updated: Monday, June 8

Early prognosis

Star defender Houli remains a strong chance to take his place against Collingwood despite battling a calf issue for much of the shutdown period. Draftee Cumberland ruptured his ACL at training and will miss the entire season. - Ben Sutton

St Kilda

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Darragh Joyce  Hamstring  Test
 Jack Steele  Wrist  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

Steele had a minor clean-up a fortnight ago and will need to prove his fitness at training this week in order to tackle the Dogs. Joyce has been training away from the main group as he battles hamstring tightness. - Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Joel Amartey  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  TBC
 Michael Knoll  Knee  6-8 weeks
 Sam Naismith  Hamstring  Test
 Sam Reid  Calf  TBC
 Ben Ronke  Knee  Test
 Jackson Thurlow  Calf  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

Franklin is the major concern here. Swans football boss Charlie Gardiner said the champion forward's setback was worse than last year's on his opposite leg, so he will likely be out for at least another two months. Reid may not be available until round six but Ronke is a chance to play after some bone bruising and cartilage damage. Hard-luck ruckman Naismith is in doubt for this week, while fellow big man Knoll will miss at least the next few weeks after suffering a PCL injury in an intraclub match last Friday.. Thurlow has recovered from ankle surgery but hurt a calf shortly after group training resumed. The ex-Cat and Amartey are about a fortnight away. - Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jarrod Cameron  Pubic bone  Test
 Mark Hutchings  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Mitch O'Neill  Back  Indefinite
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

Cameron is back in full training but won't be available for selection having missed so much training load before returning from shutdown. Hutchings will be out of full training for at least another fortnight after a clean-up. O'Neill remains at home with family while his teammates head to the Gold Coast. - Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Taylor Duryea  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Roarke Smith  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Riley Garcia  Knee  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, June 9

Early prognosis

The Bulldogs have a relatively clean bill of health with Lin Jong (hamstring), Patrick Lipinski (concussion), Rhylee West (knee), Tory Dickson (adductor) and Tom Liberatore (knee) all available after missing round one. Garcia has ramped up his training, but the Dogs will take a cautious approach with him. Zaine Cordy trained away from the main group with Duryea and Smith last Friday, but he is available for selection. - Jourdan Canil

*Placed on the club's long-term injury list
