Tottenham Hotspur will want everyone fit and available for the vital games ahead.
The 24-year-old came off injured after 56 minutes against Chelsea at the end of November and he left White Hart Lane that day wearing a protective boot, with manager Mauricio Pochettino reluctant to put a time-frame on the injury at the time.
However, despite Mason missing the weekend clash with West Bromwich Albion, the Standard claims he should return for the vital Christmas and New Year fixtures.
Tottenham are undefeated in their last 14 league matches and if they can keep that form going for a while longer they could yet reach the top of the table depending on how results go for the sides currently above them.
While Mason is not a regular starter, with Dele Alli and Eric Dier excelling this season, he would still be a good player to call on with the games about to come thick and fast.
Tottenham take on Newcastle United, Southampton, Norwich City and Watford this month before starting 2016 with a trip to Everton and two matches (including one in the FA Cup) against current league leaders Leicester City.
