It's touch and go whether two key weapons in the Southern Steel will be able to take the court for the ANZ premiership grand final on Wednesday.
Veteran captain Wendy Frew and Silver Ferns goal attack Te Paea Selby-Rickit received the most serious injuries when the team's van crashed a couple of weeks ago.
Frew had to get about 70 stitches in her knee and elbow and is only getting the last lot removed today.
She is hoping they'll both get the all clear in time for the final against the Central Pulse.
"We've done a couple of light stuff the last few days so at the moment it's just been day by day but yeah we just have to kind of see how things go tomorrow and hopefully we'll get the all clear. I'm really pumped to get out there and I'm hoping I'll be able to put on the dress."
Since the crash, the Steel's wider squad and development team members have ensured the team finished the regular season unbeaten with wins over the Tactix and Pulse.
Frew said that gave her confidence if she did have to miss the final.
"I know if we can't get out there the girls will give it their all and they'll certainly fire for us. The heart and character they showed was unreal and I'm really proud of them for what they achieved out there on court the last few weeks."
The grand final is being hosted in Invercargill.
