Ian Black and Eggert Jonsson are expected to be available for Hearts' SPL meeting with Inverness following illness.
The duo missed Tuesday's win at Motherwell - Hearts' sixth straight success - with their places going to Ryan Stevenson and Darren Barr.
Lee Wallace (knee), Andrew Driver (thigh) and David Obua (groin) are working their way back but still require practice matches, while Suso Santana (knee) and Jason Thomson (ankle) remain out.
Inverness midfielder Nick Ross is back in contention after illness saw him left on the bench during last weekend's draw against Rangers.
Kenny Gillet, Chris Innes and Gil Blumenshtein are all pushing for comebacks but are unlikely to face Hearts.
David Proctor and Kevin McCann both remain on the sidelines with knee injuries.
Hearts (from): Kello, Barr, Bouzid, Zaliukas, Stevenson, Palazuelos, Templeton, Elliot, Elliott, Balogh, Kyle, Jonsson, Mrowiec, C Thomson, Skacel, Novikovas.
Inverness (from): Esson, Tokely, Munro, Cox, Shinnie, Duff, Hayes, Ross, Foran, Rooney, Odhiambo, Sutherland, Golabek, McBain, Tuffey, Morrison, Duncan, Sanchez.
