Star Newcastle recruit Trent Hodkinson is rated a 50-50 chance of playing in next month's NRL All Stars match as he continues to battle a wrist injury.
The former Canterbury halfback returned to training with the rest of the Knights squad on Monday, but has yet to be cleared for full contact.
He was selected in Wayne Bennett's World All Stars team for the clash in Brisbane but coach Nathan Brown was unsure whether his big-name signing would make the trip.
"He's still a bit off yet. He's got to go to the specialist in about a week, and then we'll know a little bit more than. We're not expecting him back in the next fortnight," Brown said.
