Bardsley will be assessed ahead of Saturday's match versus Doncaster as he continues to recover from a groin injury.

The Scot has played just three times this season, with the latest appearance coming in early December, but he has progressed of late and could return this weekend if he receives clearance. Given his lack of match fitness, a substitute appearance likely represents the best-case scenario for Bardsley this weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bardsley is doubtful for Saturday's match against Crystal Palace because of a back injury, manager Mark Hughes said Friday.

Bardsley doesn't have a consistent starting job anyway, so an injury absence isn't likely to hurt many fantasy teams.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bardsley was sent home from training Thursday due to an illness, putting his availability for Saturday's trip to Anfield in doubt, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Bardsley has been a consistent starter for the Potters this season, though Saturday will mark two months since his last clean sheet.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bardsley (groin) is in serious doubt to play with Scotland during Friday's match in the 2016 Euro Championship qualifier against Ireland, the Independent reports.

The 29-year-old suffered his groin injury during a club match against Tottenham this past Sunday. As a result, he will likely have a late fitness test ahead of the Nov. 22 match against Burnley when he rejoins Stoke City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bardsley is eligible for Sunday's match against Tottenham after serving his red-card suspension.

Bardsley was replaced in the starting XI by American Geoff Cameron, who certainly played well enough to maintain the spot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bardsley was unable to train with the full squad Thursday, leaving him questionable to play Saturday against Manchester City.

With Geoff Cameron sidelined with a groin strain, Bardley's fitness becomes even more important for a Stoke side set to face one of the best attacks in the Premier League.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bardsley was named Stoke's starting right-back for their season opening loss to Aston Villa last Saturday.

Bardsley earned a starting defensive position in wake of regular Geoff Cameron still rebuilding his fitness following this summer's World Cup. However, with Cameron's situation at the club currently somewhat uncertain, Bardsley's fantasy stock largely hinges on whether Cameron remains a Potter at the end of this month. If so, Bardsley will likely be a reserve, but if Cameron is sold elsewhere, the right-back position could become Bardsley's to lose.
