Kings flyhalf Masixole Banda and centre Tertius Kruger are set to undergo further scans on the injuries they suffered in their 38-0 loss against Edinburgh.
Kruger injured a hand at Murrayfield last Saturday, while Banda took a knock to a leg.
‘We are fortunate to have returned with no major injuries from the short tour to Scotland,’ Kings doctor Gershwin Kortje said on Tuesday. ‘There are a few knocks and bruises, as can be expected.
‘We do, however, have Tertius Kruger going for X-rays on Tuesday after injuring his hand in the weekend’s match. We will only be able to know the extent of the injury after the X-ray results are available.
‘Masixole Banda also got a knock to the leg. We will be assessing that injury this week to ascertain how serious it is.
‘We will also have a look at the players who have been on our injury list to see how far off they are from making a return to play. We cannot at this stage confirm whether there are any players from that list who will be fit for our next match against the Cheetahs until they are assessed.’
On 19 January the Kings will face the Cheetahs for the first Pro14 South African derby this season and will hope to pick up their first win against their rivals.
The Port Elizabeth side are still without the likes of lock Bobby de Wee, flyhalf Oliver Zono and centre Sbu Sithole.
