"At the moment we are just going to give him till tomorrow morning and see if he pulls up okay," Australia captain Ricky Pointing told a news conference on Saturday.
"If he does, obviously he'll play, if he doesn't then we'll have to bring back Brad Haddin into the team."
Hayden, 35, is the world champions' highest run-scorer with 290 runs. Australia lead 3-1 in the seven-match series after the opening game was washed out.
