OH NO!: Swans star Sam Naismith is on the injured list - again.

The Gunnedah export, who played in the Swans’ grand final loss to the Bulldogs last season, was given every chance to prove his fitness this week.

But the 18-gamer was restricted to light duties during Thursday’s final training session and was ruled out.

A full update on his condition will be provided early next week.

Naismith, 24, featured in the opening three matches of 2017 before being sidelined for three rounds with a knee injury.

He returned two weeks ago in round seven, with the Swans snapping their six-game losing run in a 135-81 win over the Lions.

He backed up the following week in Sydney’s 120-78 defeat of North Melbourne but tweaked his medial ligament in the game.

It was the same injury that previously sidelined him.
