Ducati's Andrea Iannone could still take part in the San Marino Grand Prix despite sustaining injuries in a high-speed crash in first practice.

Reported as being in a lot of pain after the crash, Iannone was initially ruled unfit for the Misano race as a medical examination at a hospital in nearby Cesena revealed a T3 vertebra fracture.

The Italian missed second practice as a result and was expected to sit out the rest of the weekend, but was subsequently declared provisionally fit, with the fracture reported as "small and stable".

His condition will be reviewed at the medical centre on Saturday morning before FP3.

Iannone has six more grands prix left in his tenure as a factory Ducati rider, as he will be switching to Suzuki in 2017.
