Port Adelaide expect playmaker Travis Boak to return from a foot injury for Saturday's clash with AFL rivals Adelaide.
But whether Boak returns to play for Port next year remains uncertain, Power assistant Josh Carr says.
Boak, who is out of contract at season's end, has missed the past three games with a foot injury as he considers returning to his native Victoria.
Carr, in his playing days, quit Port after winning the 2004 premiership to return to Western Australia and play with his brother at Fremantle.
Carr, who later returned to Port to finish his playing career, said he could understand Boak considering returning to be with family.
"At some stage you may have other goals in life that you want to do - and I did that, I went home for four years," Carr said on Wednesday.
But Boak seemed content at Port Adelaide, said Carr.
"I think Boaky, he seems happy here at the moment," he said.
"I haven't actually sat down with him and said 'mate, what are you doing?'
"That is up to him to decide and he has his own reasons why he would stay or go, I will leave that for him.
"The only thing you can offer is advice - I have been through it."
