The Scottish international moved to Molineux in the summer, but after just nine games he suffered a cruciate knee injury which looked to have ended his campaign.
However, the 32-year-old's progress has been very good and he is now looking at a possible return in six weeks.
"On my last visit to the surgeon he said he was happy with the way it was progressing and that I was a little bit ahead of schedule," he said.
"So I am hoping I'll get the green light to be involved in things again in six weeks or so.
"I have always been hopeful that I would play some part in the season again, and that is my aim as long as things keep going well.
"I am just at the frustrating part now where I feel good and I think I could go on and do more, but I have to hold back a little bit.
"The risk is always that I could set myself back by doing too much and so I have to try and not get ahead of myself."
