West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic confirmed Winston Reid has returned to training ahead of Saturday's match with Everton at the London Stadium.
The New Zealand international has missed the club's last four Premier League matches due to a groin problem suffered in late March, with the problem initially expected to keep him sidelined for five weeks. However, according to Slaven Bilic, Reid has recovered quicker than expected and could be back in action for Saturday's home fixture with against the Toffees. Bilic said: "We will see if he [Reid] is going to start but he’s been training throughout this week and in his rehabilitation programme, of course he did some individual training. But he looks good, as I said. It’s a big boost for us." In the event that Reid is unable to play, James Collins will once again start alongside Jose Fonte at center-back. Apr 20 - 4:51 PM

Winston Reid is expected to be out for five weeks due to a muscle injury he suffered during last Saturday's 3-2 defeat by Leicester City.

Reid was withdrawn from the New Zealand squad after suffering the injury at weekend, which will keep him sidelined through at least the end of April. Reid has been a vital cog at the heart of the West Ham defense this campaign, starting 26 of their 29 league matches. With the 28-year-old expected to miss significant time, James Collins is in line to slot into the starting XI. Collins has made 14 appearances for the Hammers this season.

West Ham United defender Winston Reid is due to undergo a scan later this week after suffering an adductor injury during Saturday's 3-2 defeat by Leicester City.

Reid limped off the field in the 18th minute of the loss at the weekend and the club fears their New Zealand international could be sidelined for an extended period. Jack Sullivan, the son of joint-owner David Sullivan, tweeted: "INJURY UPDATE- Reid scan later this week, but at least 4-6 weeks and might be longer." The injury to Reid is part of triple blow for manager Slaven Bilic as winger Michail Antonio suffered a hamstring problem, which forced him to withdraw from the England squad, and Perdo Obiang is feared to have suffered a season-ending ankle injury. With Angelo Ogbonna already lost for the season, due to a knee operation, James Collins is likely to partner Jose Fonte in central defense for the duration of Reid's absence.

Winston Reid should recover in time to face Bournemouth this weekend after limping off with a leg injury during the 2-1 defeat by Chelsea.

Reports after the game suggested that the centre-back had been suffering from cramp, but an update provided by the Head of Medical and Sports Science at West Ham - Stijn Vandenbroucke – confirmed Reid had suffered an unspecified lower leg injury, although he did take part in a recovery training session on Wednesday. The medical team "will work hard to prepare him" for this weekend's clash at Bournemouth. Slaven Bilic also confirmed Andy Carroll and Robert Snodgrass "are both fine" after they sustained minor cuts while Michail Antonio returns to the squad after completing his one-match suspension. West Ham are "optimistic" that Jose Fonte will be available after he "felt something" on Monday night. Diafra Sakho [back surgery] is progressing with his rehab and he will now step up his fitness work with a view to re-joining the main group in April.

West Ham United defender Winston Reid will need to shake off a leg injury ahead of Saturday's match with Bournemouth.

Reid was involved in several collisions during Monday's 2-1 defeat by Chelsea and came off in 64th minute with a leg injury. While the 28-year-old took part in a recovery training session on Wednesday, the key center-half has just two more days to prepare for Saturday. With Angelo Ogbonna still out as he rehabs from knee surgery, Slaven Bilic would likely slot James Collins in the starting XI if Reid unavailable. Meanwhile, the club's medical staff has confirmed that Andy Carroll is fine after the striker suffered a cut to his face in an aerial clash with Victor Moses.

Slaven Bilic will run the rule over several players ahead of this weekend’s trip to the Riverside, but remains "optimistic" that none will miss out against Middlesbrough.

"We have a couple of players with knocks, Winston Reid is one of them. It is not painful," said Bilic during Thursdays press briefing. "Sam Byram got a knock on his knee and it was swollen so he didn’t train yesterday, but will today." Sofiane Feghouli is hampered by a slight Achilles issue and physios have told the Hammers boss that Andy Carroll was suffering from whiplash following his wonder strike in the 3-0 win over Swansea: "He has a sore neck so hopefully he’s going to be OK. He trained on Tuesday and was brilliant, but then he reported some neck pain." Payet continues to be frozen out: "I said everything then [last week] and what has changed now? Nothing. We took our stand very clearly and it stays the same. We aren’t going to sell our best players on the cheap just because somebody wants to sign them."

Winston Reid will miss West Ham's trip to Manchester United next weekend after being sent off in the club's 3-2 defeat to Tottenham.

It was a match to forget for Winston Reid. Despite Reid winning a penalty in the 68th minute, the center back was later sent off after picking up a pair of yellow cards in stoppage time. The dismissal added insult to injury and means West Ham will be without Reid for next Sunday's clash with Manchester United.

Winston Reid will miss the visit of Stoke City this weekend as well as the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers against New Caledonia because of injury.

Slaven Bilic revealed during Thursdays’ press conference that Reid "picked up a grade one hamstring injury" at Goodison Park, although he added, the defender would’ve missed out anyway after collecting his fifth caution of the season. However, the 28-year-old may only miss one Premier League game due to the international break, as a full recovery is typical within 2-3 weeks. His absence could hand James Collins his first start in over a month as the Hammers look to bounce back to make it three home wins on the spin. No Andy Carroll or Diafra Sakho, although both should come back into contention for game week twelve.

David Moyes' Sunderland crumbled at the death to give West Ham a deserved win at the Olympic Stadium.

West Ham had the better opportunities in the opening period as they nullified the threat of Jermain Defoe up front for the Black Cats. So much so that Defoe had a solitary touch in the West Ham box in the opening period. Dimitri Payet went closest when he hit the post from the edge of the box. Khazri had a fantastic chance to put Sunderland ahead just after the break but Adrian had no issue dealing with his tame shot in a one-in-one. The game was more even in the second half, with Defoe and PvA causing the hosts some trouble. Feghouli arrived on for Antonio and made a nuisance of himself around the hour mark. However, it was Winston Reid that won it for the Hammers when he turned in a Payet corner with his left foot deep into injury time.

West Ham are on track to join Manchester United in the Europa League next season after moving up to sixth on the strength of their 3-2 win on Tuesday. Dimitri Payet, West Ham's player of the season, added twice to his assist tally with set pieces for the Hammers' second and third goals. In addition to his dramatic winner, Winston Reid put in a fantastic tackle on Marcus Rashford in the box with time running down to prevent a potential United equalizer.

West Ham came through a bruising 120 minutes of football this week to guarantee their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the expense of Liverpool. However, the win came at a cost having picked up a number of injuries on the night.

Winston Reid and Joey O'Brien look set for a spell on the sidelines after the pair were forced off with hamstring related problems. A scan on Thursday will confirm the extent of the damage. Sam Byram is likely to come in at right-back while Angelo Ogbonna is poised for a recall. Slaven Bilic confirms James Tomkins (calf) "is out for five weeks" but Enner Valencia plus one / two others who suffered knocks "will be okay." Cheikhou Kouyate "is doing well" but because of the concussion guidelines the West Ham midfielder will not available for the trip to Carrow Road. Alex Song is back while Manuel Lanzini will re-join the group on Sunday. Diafra Sakho though, will be slightly longer "maybe five days after."

Winston Reid has become the third West Ham player within the last 7-days to be ruled out until 2016. The defender suffered a hamstring strain in training on Wednesday as the Hammers prepared for the visit of Stoke this weekend.

Slaven Bilic revealed during Thursdays’ press conference: "It doesn't look good. We don't know how long he'll be out for yet, we'll know more after the scan [today]." However, early reports suggest that the 27-year-old will miss between 4-6 weeks along with Victor Moses who limped off at Old Trafford with a similar problem. "It’s a blow." There have also been mixed reports regarding the injury sustained by Manuel Lanzini. Initially the club released a statement saying the midfielder would miss up-to 6 weeks while Bilic remains "hopeful" that Lanzini could be back for Swansea next weekend. Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia "are looking good, we will have to wait and see."

Winston Reid will miss gameweek 10 with a back injury.

Reid is supposedly improving and "running again" but is not ready for gameweek 10 and will be absent. That will be a big problem for West Ham, who try to contain and improving Chelsea team. Victor Moses is also out due to his loan agreement preventing him from facing Chelsea and it seems the Blues will have the healthier squad heading into this one.

WInston Reid has emerged as a doubt for West Ham's match against Sunderland tomorrow.

Winston picked up a hip / lower back problem earlier this week and will be monitored before the match on Saturday. If he can't go, James Collins will likely slot in for him at center-back and Sunderland's attackers will get a boost in fantasy value. Angelo Ogbonna has been ruled out with a hamstring injury while Andy Carroll is battling a knee problem.

Winston Reid will miss West Ham's Europa League match against Astra.

Reid is managing a minor injury and won't be risked against Astra. It's worth noting the defender missed a number of matches last season due to muscle injuries and it's a growing concern that he's once again dealing with an injury. Reid is expected to return to training next week so we'll consider him probable for week one, but check back next week when we know more.
