Brett Lee is to join up with the Australian One Day International squad in the United Arab Emirates as he continues to make a recovery from an ankle injury.

He could be in contention for the final matches against Pakistan and the Twenty20 International but he will continue his recovery and rehabilitation in the UAE.

Australian Team Doctor Trefor James said in a statement that Lee had been making good progress.

"Brett Lee has progressed well in his recovery from ankle surgery while in South Africa over the past fortnight.

"He will join the Australian squad in Abu Dhabi tomorrow, where he will continue to train and be further assessed.

"Should his progress be far enough advanced, he may be considered for selection in the remaining matches of the one-day series and the Twenty20 match in Dubai."
