Clare Senior Hurling Management say they expect defender Patrick O'Connor (Tubber) and forward Conor McGrath (Cratloe) to return to full fitness in April.
Both players underwent shoulder surgery in late 2016.
The news will come as a welcome boost to the Banner ahead of the June 4th Munster Championship semi-final clash with Limerick in Semple Stadium.
O'Connor was named Senior Hurling captain for 2017 earlier this month. Vice Captain Tony Kelly (Ballyea) along with Niall Deasy, Paul Flanagan, Gearoid O'Connell and Jack Browne will also return to the panel following Ballyea's All Ireland Club Final next month.
David McInerney (Tulla) meanwhile, returned to training last night while Conor Ryan (Cratloe) has ruled himself out of action for the coming year. Ryan will however, remain part of the backroom staff taking up a position in the senior hurling analytics team for 2017.
