hello if the noise is a light ticking from the top end of the engine then this isn't too serious as its likely to be a sticking tappet but if its more of a knocking deep inside the engine then yes its possible to be a big end bearing ideally the next step would be to measure the oil pressure as if this is low then its another indication the big-end bearing is worn now its possible to repair things by replacing the bearings , that is providing the crank bearing surface isn't damaged but I should also say that it is possible if the engine has been knocking for some time the crank will be damaged and it would be economic to source a replacement
