Hawthorn could lose star defender James Sicily for the run home to the finals, with the club sending him in for scans on a potential broken wrist.

According to SEN’s Sam McCLure, the Hawks believe Sicily maybe have broken his wrist on the weekend, which would add the 23-year-old to their growing injury list.

“The Hawks have endured a pretty torrid time of late with injuries,” he told SEN Breakfast.

“We know Cyril Rioli has retired, Ben McEvoy with his cheekbone didn’t play on the weekend, they’re missing Shaun Burgoyne with a hamstring, they’re missing Grant Birchall who has been out all year.

“They might be missing another one of their stars if scan results aren’t good this morning.

James Sicily is going in for scans, fears he has broken his wrist on the weekend.

“They’re the fears being held by the club at the moment. He has still got to have the scans in about an hour and they will confirm it. Sore wrist and fears there’s a break in there.”

Hawthorn will confirm the injury news later in the morning.
