Hall was injured crashing into the net in a 3-2 loss against the Vancouver Canucks on Nov. 1 and missed the Oilers' recent five-game road trip.
"My biggest thing since I got hurt is when I'm ready to play, I'll play," Hall said. "If that's two games from now, fine; if that's four games from now, then fine. When I'm ready to play and I'm confident in my knee, then I'll play."
The Oilers have lost three of five games without Hall in the lineup. Left wing Benoit Pouliot has been moved up to fill the void on the Oilers' top line alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. Pouliot has two goals and an assist in his past two games.
"Pouliot has worked extremely hard right from the start of the season," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "There are a million different ways you can contribute on a team. We signed Ben because he can close on the puck and he has an excellent stick. We thought we needed more of that and he's brought that.
"Now playing with those guys he's filled in greatly for a pair of shoes that are very big in Taylor Hall."
