SIMON Black is no certainty to play in the Brisbane Lions' season opening AFL clash with the Western Bulldogs.

The champion midfielder had clean-out surgery last week on his knee which had become irritated during the early stages of pre-season training.

Initial predictions were for a training comeback by the end of January and a cameo appearance during the NAB Cup.

But coach Michael Voss said there is little margin for error and the former skipper could be in a race against time and his ageing body to be ready by Round 1 on March 31.

"We are (confident) but it will be a lot tighter,'' Voss said.

"The surgery doesn't change his actual timeline. But obviously we would like more time for him to feel good about his pre-season and feeling fresh, not recovering.''

Otherwise the Lions are a fit and focused bunch as they head towards the Christmas break.

Black and ruckman Matthew Leuenberger have been the only absentees from training, with Leuenberger expected back on the track after Christmas.
