Magpies captain Darcy Moore is reportedly dealing with a tendon concern ahead of Collingwood's preliminary final fixture in two weeks' time.

Moore is continuing to be assessed for a hand/wrist issue that required strapping during Collingwood's qualifying final win over Melbourne last Thursday.

The All-Australian defender, who visited the Epworth Hospital to consult specialists on Tuesday, has had a cast placed on his right hand, according to The Age's Michael Gleeson.

It is understood the measure has been taken in order to 'settle' the tendons in his right wrist.

While a matter of reasonable concern for Pies supporters, the ailment isn't expected to prevent Moore from playing in the preliminary final weekend.

Moore, who recovered from a hamstring strain in time to play in Collingwood's first final against the Demons, would leave a massive hole in Craig McRae's defence if he were to potentially miss additional time, particularly considering Brayden Maynard's possible impending absence.

In other Magpies selection news, Maynard will learn his AFL Tribunal fate on Tuesday afternoon after concussing Melbourne's Angus Brayshaw last Thursday, while superstar Nick Daicos seemingly remains on track to make his anticipated return from injury.

Forward Jack Ginnivan was the Pies' tactical substitute last week, while defender John Noble was surprisingly dropped for the Dees bout.

Collingwood has this weekend off before it prepares to host a preliminary final at the MCG against one of Port Adelaide or GWS.
