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. Oct 23 - 4:23 PM

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.

Winston Reid has recovered from a hamstring injury and should be included in the gameweek 37 squad.

It's unknown if Reid is fit enough to start and give the Hammers 90 minutes so West Ham's central defenders should be left on the waiver wire for now. James Collins is the only sure candidate to give 90 minutes this weekend but even he is not a great option against an unpredictable Everton. James Tomkins is still out with a shoulder injury.

Winston Reid is once again ruled out with a hamstring injury and it's becoming more and more unlikely he features again this season.

Reid is struggling to get fit and West Ham continue to struggle with injuries in defense. James Collins and Reece Burke will likely start at center-back once again but handling Benteke is no easy task, so we would advice using the Aston Villa striker over any West Ham defenders this week. James Tomkins and Guy Demel are also ruled out for the Hammers.

Winston Reid will miss GW35 with a hamstring injury.

Reid was out last week as well and Sam Allardyce said that none of last week's absentees will be returning. With James Tomkins also out, the West Ham defense will once against be suspect, although it's hard to trust Burnley strikers away from home. This is a match to avoid in fantasy games.

Winston Reid is training with the main group again after battling a hamstring injury for a few weeks.

Reid is still questionable to start this weekend but he is closer to probable than doubtful. West Ham's defense has been very poor in the last few weeks but having Reid back will be a huge boost. With the Hammers set to face Leicester City on Saturday, Reid is a good fantasy option as he provides phantom points on top of a good clean sheet chance.

Winston Reid will miss his international duty with New Zealand since he has still not recovered from a hamstring injury.

New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson stated that the team have given Winston every chance to be fit but he hasn't responded well to treatment and they will not even fly him out to join the squad. He also made it sound like Reid is close to returning, so it is not out of the question he is fit for next weekend when West Ham face Leicester City. Keep an eye out for his fitness levels before deciding on your GW31 fantasy team.

Winston Reid will be a late fitness check for gameweek 30 but is considered doubtful to play.

Despite being labeled as a late fitness check, Reid is very unlikely to play. Sam Allardyce said that Reid "doesn't look like he's going to be fit", so you can safely leave him out of your fantasy lineup this weekend. West Ham's defense is still struggling to be fit so we can expect a lack of clean sheets in the near future. Invest elsewhere.

Winston Reid will miss gameweek 29 due to a hamstring problem.

With Tomkins already ruled out and Carl Jenkinson not being able to feature against his parent club, the Hammers will be extremely short-handed on Saturday. A trip to Arsenal is not a good fixture to have when struggling with injuries, and there will likely be a ton of goals in this match. The worry is that Sam Allardyce could choose to park the bus on Arsenal, but not even that should stop the Gunners. Use Arsenal's attack in fantasy this weekend.

West Ham have announced Winston Reid penned a new contract after a agreeing a 6.5 year deal to end months of speculation although the Hammers may have to wait a while before seeing their newly signed defender back in action after injury curtailed his involvement against Chelsea.

Reid picked up a calf injury within minutes of the game at the Boleyn Ground affording James Collins his first significant contribution since January following back and hamstring problems. Although the extent of the injury is not yet known soft tissue damage can typically sideline a player for between 10-21 days dependent upon the extent of the damage which will be confirmed over the next 24/48 hours. With no BPL fixtures this weekend West Ham are free for another 10 days – after their FA Cup exit - which means Winston Reid could have a chance of making the Arsenal game, however Allardyce has options with Guy Demel and Joey O’Brien able to slot into the back four if he is ruled out.
Mar 5 - 6:55 AM

Winston Reid has returned from a thigh injury and will be available for selection against Spurs this weekend.

Reid has missed a few weeks now so it's unsure if he can go a full 90 minutes. Don't be surprised if he comes off the bench, or plays 60 minutes before he gets replaced. Due to the uncertainty, we'd recommend avoiding Reid in fantasy this weekend. In formats where you can make changes up until kickoff, use him with confidence if he starts. James Collins and Alex Song are also expected to return this weekend.

Winston Reid is very doubtful for West Ham's GW25 clash with Southampton.

Reid is still recovering form a hamstring injury and the midweek match likely comes too soon. Cheikhou Kouyate and James Tomkins are the likely beneficiaries as James Collins and Guy Demel are also expected to miss out. Kouyate is the player to target in fantasy due to his attacking skills.

Winston Reid will miss West Ham's GW24 match with Manchester United due to a hamstring injury.

West Ham are having a lot of issues at their defensive line and missing Reid through injury is a big blow. The starting back four will be James Tomkins, Aaron Cresswell, Carl Jenkinson, and Cheikhou Kouyate. Sam Allardyce confirmed earlier this week that he will take no risks with his players ahead of a busy stretch, so it's not surprising that Reid is out of this one. The injury is not a long term one, and Reid will have a chance to return soon.

Defensive problems begin to mount for West Ham which could force the Hammers’ boss back into the transfer market before Mondays’ deadline as James Collins and Winston Reid both picked up soft tissue problems at Anfield.

West Ham finished the game with ten men on Saturday and Sam Allardyce was left under no illusion that the injuries to his squad were a major contributing factor to Liverpool’s’ win. James Tomkins [hamstring] and Carl Jenkinson [calf] both failed a late fitness test while the returning James Collins – back injury – picked up a hamstring issue and it was due to this problem that he allowed Sterling to steal a yard to score the opener. Another hamstring injury – this time to Winston Reid – means West Ham have five defenders sidelined with Cheikhou Kouyate reporting an ankle injury on his return from the AFCoN.
