Mitchell Starc remains in doubt for the Boxing Day Ashes Test.
However, the paceman was put at ease after confirmation he only has a bruised heel.
His foot injury was checked on Wednesday clearing the bowler of serious injury.
In good news for Australia, the 27-year-old will join his teammates in Melbourne later this week ahead of the MCG fixture.
Starc has enjoyed a scorching summer for Australia and was key to their 3-0 Ashes triumph which saw them claim back the urn from England.
