Jack Gunston has updated the progress of Hawthorn teammate Jarryd Roughead, saying the star is recovering well.

Roughead missed the entire 2016 season to undergo immunotherapy as he battles cancerous spots in his lungs.

Gunston joined Fev and Howie on Triple M's Dead Set Legends, and said the return of his forward line partner was closing in.

"From all I know he's going pretty well," he said.

"He's out at the club now, doing bits and pieces and training lightly."

Gunston was optimistic of a Roughead return.

"I'm sure he's got a few more scans to go, and (he's) just got to tick a few boxes, but we're all hopeful that he'll join us through pre-season and hopefully he's there round one," he said.

But he tried to keep his expectations level.

"I guess with such a big illness you never know what might happen," he said.
