Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

All Australian defender Laird has a small fracture in his hand and is in doubt for Sunday’s clash with Fremantle at Optus Stadium. Lynch is unlikely to play this weekend with a side strain, while Douglas is on track to recover from a scratched eyeball in time to take his place in the side. – Lee Gaskin

Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Three weeks ago there was barely a player on this list, now it looks like a casualty ward. McCluggageBerryand Christensen are all a chance to play the Bombers, though, and Sam Skinner is close to returning from his third ruptured ACL. – Michael Whiting

Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

The Blues are confident about regaining several players after the bye. Casboult, Kennedy and Pickett should be available, while Lebois, McDaid and Silvagni are set to resume in the seconds. – Howard Kotton

COLLINGWOOD

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 James Aish  Knee  7 weeks
 Tim Broomhead  Broken leg  Season
 Jamie Elliott  Hamstring  TBC

 Darcy Moore  Hamstring  TBC
 Ben Reid  Leg  Test
 Brayden Sier  Adductor  Test
 Josh Smith  Hamstring  TBC
 Travis Varcoe  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Howe is expected to return for the Queen’s Birthday clash with Melbourne, but Reid and Varcoe are unlikely.Sier‘s bid for an AFL debut remains on hold. Fasolo will spend a considerable time on the sidelines and the Pies will also be conservative with hamstrung trio ElliottMoore and Smith. The club continues to monitor Kirby‘s heart issue. – Ben Collins

ESSENDON

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Patrick Ambrose  Calf  2-3 weeks
 Josh Begley  Knee  Season
 Joe Daniher  Groin  2-3 weeks
 Martin Gleeson  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Kobe Mutch  Head  TBC
 Darcy Parish  Thumb  6-8 weeks
 David Zaharakis  Shoulder  6-8 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Zaharakis’ shoulder injury is a big blow for the Bombers given his excellent form in the first half of the year. They are still waiting on the return of key forward Daniher as he battles his groin injury, but in better news Travis Colyer returned to the VFL last weekend after missing the opening 10 weeks of the season overcoming foot surgery. – Callum Twomey

FREMANTLE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Harley Bennell  Calf  TBA
 Sean Darcy  Knee  1 week

GEELONG

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Lachie Henderson  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Daniel Menzel  Groin  TBC
 Esava Ratugolea  Ankle  TBC
 Scott Selwood  Back  Test
 Harry Taylor  Foot  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Daniel Menzel will be targeting a return after Geelong’s round 14 bye as he starts to ramp up his training after a persistent groin setback. Nakia Cockatoo is getting close to a comeback after a fortnight of full training, which will be through the VFL. Scott Selwood re-joined full training last week and will be a line ball decision. The Cats insist Harry Taylor is feeling pain free and could be called upon to handle North Melbourne spearhead Ben Brown. Lachie Henderson will be eying off round 15, Cam Guthrie‘s return could come even quicker. – Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Brayden Fiorini  Leg  6-8 weeks
 Aaron Hall  Pectoral  10-12 weeks
 Pearce Hanley  Dislocated shoulder  6-8 weeks

 Matt Rosa  Hamstring  2-4 weeks
 Harrison Wigg  Fractured ankle  Indefinite
 Mackenzie Willis  ACL  Indefinite
 Aaron Young  Ankle  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Another horror week for the Suns, with Hall and May added to a growing list. Young is a chance to face the Giants, but must pass a fitness test later in the week. – Michael Whiting

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Stephen Coniglio  Concussion  Test
 Matt de Boer  Hamstring  Test
 Brett Deledio  Calf/Hamstring  7-9 weeks
 Toby Greene  Foot  TBC
 Tom Mohr  Shoulder  Test
 Tom Scully  Ankle  7 weeks
 Will Setterfield  Knee  Season
 Lachie Tiziani  Knee  Season
 Zac Williams  Achilles  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

The good news for the Giants is that Matt de Boer should be available after recovering from a hamstring strain, and Adam Kennedy should make a long-awaited return from a knee reconstruction in the NEAFL. Both players need to get through training this week. Coniglio should be right to face Gold Coast but will need to pass concussion protocols later in the week. – Adam Curley

HAWTHORN

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Grant Birchall  Knee (PCL)  4 weeks
 Changkuoth Jiath  Groin  1-2 weeks
 Dylan Moore  Shoulder  Test
 Cyril Rioli  Knee  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

The Hawks are spread far and wide on their bye week, from Noosa to Barnbougle, so there is no official word from the club, but Rioli is desperate to return for the Adelaide game on Saturday week, which will be teammate Shaun Burgoyne’s 350th game. Indications are that if he trains well next week, he will play, which means Birchall aside, the Hawks will be at full strength for their biggest game of the season. – Ashley Browne

MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Dean Kent  Hamstring  1 week
 Jake Lever  Knee  Season
 Corey Maynard  Hip  Indefinite
 Pat McKenna  Hamstring  Indefinite
 Jake Melksham  Ankle  Test
 Cameron Pedersen  Concussion  Test
 Aaron vandenBerg  Foot  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Lever will miss the rest of the season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. It is the second time the star defender has suffered the injury during this career, although the first ACL tear came prior to him being drafted as a 17-year-old. The defender has been booked in for surgery later this week. Melksham is confident of getting up for the Queen’s Birthday clash, but will have to get passed fit to play after tweaking his ankle against the Western Bulldogs. – Ben Guthrie

NORTH MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Jed Anderson  Hamstring  Test
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  TBC
 Jy Simpkin  Suspension  Available round 15
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Knee  Season
 Jarrad Waite  Calf  Test
 Declan Watson  Knee  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Anderson, who missed all bar five minutes of the win over Brisbane, and Waite, a late withdrawal, were optimistic about facing Geelong after scans on Monday. Anderson says he could have returned to Sunday’s game if required. They each have a history with their particular injury, so that may be a consideration in whether one or both of them play this weekend. Garner‘s playing status is unclear after more hamstring trouble saw him sit out the last quarter a fortnight ago then last week’s VFL match. – Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Joe Atley  Back  Assess
 Matthew Broadbent  Ankle  TBC
 Willem Drew  Heel  Season
 Hamish Hartlett  Knee  Season
 Aidyn Johnson  Adductor  Assess
 Jarrod Lienert  Knee  3-5 weeks
 Todd Marshall  Shoulder  Assess
 Trent McKenzie  Quad  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

No new injuries to come out of last Saturday’s three-point loss to Hawthorn in Launceston. Marshall would likely return in the SANFL after missing last weekend’s game with a shoulder injury. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

 Jason Castagna  Knee  Test
 Mabior Chol  Foot  6-8 weeks
 Shaun Hampson  Back  TBA
 Bachar Houli  Groin  4 weeks
 Dion Prestia  Calf  4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Castagna needs to get through training this week to prove he’s over the knee soreness he’s missed the last two games with. Prestia has shown some improvement in his calf complaint but will join Houli on the sidelines until at least after the Tigers’ round 14 bye. Chol is the new addition to the injury list; he broke his foot at training last week and has undergone surgery, which will leave him out for the next two months.  Jennifer Phelan

ST KILDA

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Blake Acres  Groin  3-4 weeks
 Nathan Brown  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Josh Bruce  Back  Test
 Jake Carlisle  Suspension  1 week
 Luke Dunstan  Shoulder  Test
 Nathan Freeman  Shoulder  1 week
 Jarryn Geary  Calf  3 weeks
 Sam Gilbert  Thumb  3-4 weeks
 Ben Long  Foot  6-10 weeks
 Darren Minchington  Hip  Test
 Lewis Pierce  Hamstring  Test
 Dylan Roberton  Heart  Season
 Koby Stevens  Concussion  Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

A left calf strain will keep Geary out until after the bye. Dunstan should be right to go after copping a right shoulder knock against Richmond in round 10 while Bruce is on the brink of making his VFL return from a back injury. Long was out of his moon boot on Tuesday. Pierce is looking unlikely to face Sandringham in the VFL this week. – Dinny Navaratnam

SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 James Bell  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Jordan Dawson  Quad  Test
 Lewis Melican  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Callum Mills  Foot  Season
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Sam Reid  Quad  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

 Early prognosis

Reid continues to run well and looks on track to return after the round 14 bye, with the Swans hopeful Melican can do the same. – Adam Curley

WEST COAST

Player

Estimated Return

 Hamish Brayshaw  Knee  1 week
 Jack Darling  Ankle  4-6 weeks
 Malcolm Karpany  Knee  5-7 weeks
 Eric Mackenzie  Toe  2 weeks

 Tony Olango  Concussion  Test

 Luke Shuey  Hamstring  Test
 Daniel Venables  Ankle  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

TBC – Travis King

WESTERN BULLDOGS

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Kieran Collins  Ankle  1 week

 Tim English  Foot  3-4 weeks
 Tom Liberatore  Knee  Season
 Aaron Naughton  Ankle  Test
 Liam Picken  Concussion  Indefinite
 Jack Redpath  Knee  6-8 weeks
 Clay Smith  Knee  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 5

Early prognosis

Cordy and Naughton should be available for the round 13 clash with Port Adelaide, but Dickson will miss up to six weeks after re-injuring his troublesome hamstring. – Ryan Davidson

  1. Thanks Chillo. Had no idea about Laird. Handy.
    And I see Fyfe’s one match ban has been upheld.
    Just need Ridley and T Smith to be omitted/managed and i’ll be down to 18 afield. Donut if Cogs doesn’t get up too.
    Is it always this hard basket?!

  2. With Fyfe out and the chance of Cogs and Laird being out my undefeated streak in my league will be up and I’m just gonna throw up the white flag for this week. I’ll be lucky to field 18.

  3. Ouch, ouch and ouch. Fyfe, Laird and Cogs would all be big omissions from my side (particularly during the first bye round!). Silver lining is that they are all high ownership players and most teams should be in the same boat. Just goes to show that you can prepare your team from round 1 for the byes, but at the end of the day, all good laid plans can turn to Billings. (my new word for poo) 😉
    Not really SC relevant, but as a Lions fan I am shattered that Charlie Cameron is out for the season. Was an exciting player to support and has played some great footy for us this year.

    On a side note, I wish the Port players were in better form, so that I had more confidence in picking them. That has been my plan from the beginning to bring 1-2 Port players in this round, but tempted to wait another week for a handy price fall and another look at their role on game day.

    Decisions, decisions!

    1. Good point about high ownership.
      Real sad about CharlieC. He and Jarman Impey looked the best trades for this year. Can’t discount Hodgey either. His love for the game and knowledge he must be imparting on the young group will pay massive dividends for the Lions.
      Not sure it’ll lead to a flag in 2022 but 😉
      Sooner than the Saints tho’, I’ve no doubt!

  4. Same boat for me with Fyfe, Cogs and Laird. Disappointing t0 lose 3 premos in one round , especially after planning pretty well for bye rounds. However I am only in two leagues , both connected to this site, and both opponents have the same issue. Just going to stick with the plan.

  5. There are a couple of anomalies with the Saints injury list. The AFL site (as above) has N.Brown as 1-2 weeks & Minchington as a Test whereas the Saints site (see link below) has N.Brown as a Test (likely to play) & Minchington as 1-2 weeks.

    http://www.saints.com.au/news/2018-06-05/injury-update-round-12

    If N.Brown returns this week it probably doesn’t impact Austin’s selection but may next week with Carlisle returning from suspension. Makes me start to question trading in Austin @ $159k

  6. Ridley is having a scan on his knee according to Essendon reports. Apparently he is probable to play but I wouldn’t be surprised if they rest him given he had a pretty quiet game last week.

    Would leave me with a doughnut this week if that’s the case! really wouldn’t think it’d be worth burning a trade on him given the job security of the downgrade targets (heron, Mihochek) is the same as his.

  7. I was wondering about Liam Ryan and just saw he is one week away. With the way West Coast are traveling, any chance he gets a look back in post-bye?
