Mark Hughes will give a fitness test to Mousa Dembele before deciding whether he will play any part against the Hammers.
Dembele returned to training this week after spending the last five weeks on the sidelines with an ankle injury.
Matthew Briggs (calf) is out until next month, while Bobby Zamora (leg) and Philippe Senderos (Achilles) should return in February.
Goalkeeper Robert Green could be back after recovering from a minor hip operation to give the Hammers a boost.
Valon Behrami and Victor Obinna could also return although manager Avram Grant will decided after training on Saturday.
Midfielder Mark Noble, however, is still a doubt with a hip injury while Jack Collison, Manual Da Costa and Thomas Hitzlsperger are all out. Winger Luis Boa Morte misses out through suspension, but Freddie Sears could be included after returning from loan at Scunthorpe.
