Bassong (hamstring) remains a doubt for Norwich City's away fixture to Stoke City on Sunday, the Norwich Evening News reports.

Bassong had to be substituted before halftime during Norwich's last outing in the Premier League, a home game against Aston Villa. Manager Chris Hughton and his team will continue to give Bassong every chance to prove his fitness before kickoff on Sunday afternoon. But until then he should be rated as a major doubt.

Bassong made his season debut during last Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Bury and finally made his Premier League debut Saturday, collecting a clean sheet in his initial foray. The defender is not a high-upside fantasy performer, unless Norwich can go on a run of clean-sheets.
