The Kings have been boosted with a number of players returning for Saturday's fixture in Port Elizabeth against the Chiefs after missing the opening round due to injury.
The Kings suffered a 43-8 defeat to the Sharks in the opening round of the 2016 competition and had a bye last week.
Deon Davids' front row will be beefed up with prop Jacobie Adriaanse, who suffered a concussion in the pre-season warm-up match against the SWD Eagles, is is one of the players cleared.
Scrum-half Kevin Luiters is also among those returning to the team after struggling with a tight calf, and utility back Jaco van Tonder has also received clearance following his undergoing rehabilitation for an ACL injury he sustained last year.
Fly-half Louis Fouché and flanker Aidon Davis have also resumed training after recovering from knee operations.
