With skipper Grant Holt in doubt for the trip to West Bromwich Albion, Hughton may call on Tottenham loanee Kane who returned from a broken metatarsal in the week to score a brace for the Canaries U21s.
"Harry is certainly there or thereabouts. The decision we have to make on Harry is the fact he has been out for such a long time," Hughton said.
"Harry has done a fair bit of work, but he will be lacking in some areas, which is normal, but the good news is the injury is fine.
"It is good to have him back. If he was involved (at West Brom) it would be based on the fact he has done enough. We don't want him to break down."
Since arriving at Carrow Road from Spurs, Kane has made just two appearances - one in the Premier League and one in the Capital One Cup.
