Perth import Terrico White is still a chance to play in Saturday's NBL clash in Cairns, with scans clearing him of serious damage to his left knee.

White suffered the injury in last week's win over the NZ Breakers when his knee twisted in a tangle of legs.

Scans have revealed bone bruising but no ligament or structural damage.

The Wildcats say they will assess White before making a decision in coming days on his availability.

If White misses Saturday's match against the Taipans, he might return in the December 1 home encounter against Adelaide.

Perth sit second on the ladder with an 8-3 record.
