The All Blacks may miss the services of No.8 Ardie Savea and prop Nepo Laulala for the third Bledisloe Cup test in Sydney next week.
Both players are on paternity leave and will not cross the Tasman with the squad on Sunday but they are expected to join their teammates in the following week or two.
Prop Joe Moody is still undergoing head injury assessment protocols and is also questionable for the Sydney test.
Crusaders prop George Bower and Hurricanes flanker Du'Plessis Kirifi have been added to the travelling 36-man squad as a cover.
The All Blacks meet the Wallabies at 8.45pm next Saturday at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.
