Jesse Hogan has been officially ruled out of the game with illness.
Melbourne young gun Jesse Hogan has not boarded the team plane to Adelaide ahead of their big clash on Saturday night.
Hogan failed to train yesterday with illness.
The power forward returned to the side last week in the Demons loss to Hawthorn.
Hogan has missed three of the past five games.
Sam Weideman was the travelling emergency with the Melbourne side and would be the likely replacement for Hogan should he not line up.
