Ryan Mason admits Harry Kane is running out of time to be fit for the Carabao Cup Final.
Kane did not train on Friday as he recovers from his latest ankle injury and interim boss Mason says Tottenham are taking it “hour by hour”.
England skipper Kane limped off after scoring twice in Friday night’s 2-2 draw with Everton and sat out Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Southampton.
He is desperate to face Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday as Spurs bid to finally end their trophy drought.
But Mason, who will lead Tottenham out at Wembley after Jose Mourinho’s shock sacking, said: “The days are obviously running out.
“He didn't train with the team today but we'll have more of an idea tomorrow, to see if we can get him back on the pitch.”
Mason also admitted he is “not really sure” how fit Kane is, saying: “It’s a case of taking it hour by hour now.
“It's see how he feels in the next four hours, next six hours. I can't really answer that question until tomorrow. No one is really sure.
“Harry had a very long time out. He was injured before the Champions League final. We don't know if Harry is going to be available for training tomorrow, let alone the game on Sunday.
“A week without training is not a problem for someone like Harry. We'll assess him tomorrow morning and see if we can get him on the pitch.
“It's a combined effort. How does the player feel? What's the advice? What are the chances of something happening?

“Harry is a mature man, a mature professional footballer. He's had to deal with certain situations.
“We’ll speak to him, with no pressure: ‘how do you feel? What are you feeling?’”
Kane is the Premier League’s top scorer this season with 21 goals and also has 13 assists in the campaign so far.
