Johnathan Thurston hasn't given up hope on injured Queensland halves partner Cooper Cronk playing in the State of Origin series-opener in Sydney on Wednesday night.

Thurston said Cronk, who rolled his ankle at training on the Gold Coast on Friday, had earned the right to be given until the last minute to prove his fitness.

Thurston admitted Queensland's preparations would be hindered without Cronk despite his North Queensland teammate Michael Morgan slotting into the Maroons halves at training while Daly Cherry-Evans is in camp on standby to be added to the bench.
