HUDDERSFIELD Giants were today facing the waiting game on two fronts.
Initial tests to determine the full extent of the damage suffered by centre Jamahl Lolesi, right, to his left knee during Sunday's 74-4 Challenge Cup hammering of York have proved inconclusive and a further scan will be required.
And tonight, the Giants take their place in the draw for the fifth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup, which will be screened lived on BBC Look North from 6.30.
But it's the injury to former New Zealand Test ace Lolesi that's the major concern.
Having already lost second rower Paul Smith for around six weeks following groin surgery, coach Jon Sharp certainly doesn't need another frontline player sidelined for any length of time.
And he is keeping his fingers crossed the news is positive.
"Jamahl saw a surgeon yesterday, and he now needs a scan to see exactly how bad the damage is," said Sharp.
"All we can do is hope for the best.
"Jamahl is not feeling too bad in himself, but it's clear he has suffered quite a bit of damage to his knee. It's just a case of determining the full extent."
As well as preparing his side for Friday's Super League home clash against Wakefield, Sharp will have a keen eye on tonight's Challenge Cup draw.
And he is hoping for more luck on that front.
"Another home tie is our top priority, so let's hope the draw is kind for us again," he said.
The Giants last night opened their Junior Academy campaign with a 52-16 defeat at Wigan in which Michael Lawrence impressed for the visitors.
Tries were scored by Ryan Heeley, Damien Thomas and Richard Lopag, with two goals from Luke Broady, who was one of the eight former Newsome Panthers players in the side.
