Today is D-Day for Hawks luminary Glen Saville.

Wollongong's iconic forward is scheduled for scans on his injured left knee and will probably find out if his storied career is over.

Saville suffered the injury in the first quarter of Saturday's 17-point home loss to New Zealand and didn't return for the rest of the game.

In his 19th season, the 37-year-old was likely to call it a day at the end of the Hawks' 2012-13 campaign, though nothing was definite.

Saville knows there's a chance he has played his last game but hopes the injury isn't serious enough to sideline him for his team's final 10 games.

At least he hasn't lost his sense of humour.

"We haven't had too many knee injuries lately so it was a bit surprising when I did mine," he said.

"I was feeling quite good out there [against the Breakers] too.

"I'd hit my first two shots and then my knee kind of went. There wasn't a sharp pain - something just didn't feel right.

"The thing that worries me is that it's my good knee. It's hard to tell what's going on until I have the scan," he said.

Saville is the fourth Wollongong player to suffer a knee injury this season and the seventh player to miss games through injury.
