Hooper hasn’t played a first team game since December 26, 2017 when, just days after Carlos Carvalhal left the club, Wednesday under the temporary stewardship of Lee Bullen beat Nottingham Forest 3-0 at the City Ground.
Steve Bruce is hopeful that fans will get to see the former Celtic and Norwich City striker turn out for the run in as the Owls make a late push for a play-off place.
“We’re hoping that we can’t rule out Hooper,” he said last week. “He’s ticking along quite nicely at the moment. It’s a big couple of weeks now for him.”
