Ghanaian defender Gideon Jung is expected to return to full fitness in two weeks following a thigh problem.
The 25-year-old sustained thigh strain during Hamburg 2-2 stalemate against Jahn Regensburg last month and has been out of action since then.
"This week he will train individually with Sebastian Capel [Rehab coach]," said coach Dieter Hecking, adding that "next week he should get into the team training."
The German-born Ghanaian defender has been struggling with injuries over the past few years but has been free from complaints for nearly two months - becoming a key cog in Hamburg’s defensive backline.
He has played seven matches as Humburg sit top of Bundesliga 2 table.
