Wales are set to be with Cory Hill and locks Adam Beard for their World Cup opener.
Ospreys did not travel with all the World Cup squad to Japan and Beard had his appendix removed in Wales.
And Hill is currently continuing his comeback from a stress fracture in his legremaining on goal to be accessible for a consultation with Australia on September 29.
“We have picked up a few injuries and there is a concern at the moment together with all the second rows,” explained Wales head coach Warren Gatland.
“He [Beard] will be hoping to come out into Japan on Thursday.
“He’s probably not likely to be available for selection to the Georgia game, but we are optimistic – along with the medics are convinced – which he will be available for selection to the Australia game.”
It indicates that Jake Ball will be skipper Alun Wyn Jones’ second-row partner against Georgia, using flanker Aaron Shingler providing cover on the bench.
On Hill, Gatland included:”They [medics] are convinced he is going to be available for selection against Australia.
“He has been outside of his boot and also on the training area today, although he wasn’t doing any running.
“Hopefully, after that Georgia game he’ll be back training and available for choice.”
Fly-half Rhys Patchell has done some work that was non-contact after suffering concussion during Wales’ final World Cup warm-up match against Ireland.
“He’s gone through the HIA [head trauma examination ] protocols,” said Gatland.
“He was training this afternoon, just doing a number of stuff at this point.
“We’ll ease him back into contact work later in the week, so making certain that we proceed through the protocols also ensure he is 100 percent and available for selection.”
Where they will be based until Thursday the Wales team are appreciating temperatures of unbroken sunshine and approximately 30 degrees in the southern city of Kitakyushu.
They have also obtained a warm welcome, together with countless schoolchildren greeting their birth at the airport while flags and banners of support are all over town.
“It is absolutely fantastic,” said Gatland. “They have embraced Wales, the team and the civilization, even placing the red dragon on their search motors.
“For the gamers to see all the flags and posters around the city has been quite gruesome. It’s brilliant that the city has behind us.
“There are many similarities between Kitakyushu and Wales in regard to the foundation of the mining industry as well as the ports.
“There is absolutely a relationship , and hopefully we can continue to build on this.”
