Hearts are waiting to discover if Marian Kello, Rudi Skacel and Stephen Elliott will be fit enough to be included in the squad for the Edinburgh derby.
Goalkeeper Kello (back), midfielder Skacel (calf) and forward Elliott (illness) missed the 2-0 midweek win at St Mirren which saw Hearts consolidate third place in the SPL.
Lee Wallace remains in contention after being an unused substitute at Saints, and Jason Thomson (ankle), David Obua (groin) and Andrew Driver (thigh) are nearing returns, but Suso Santana (knee) remains out.
Merouane Zemmama and Darryl Duffy are once again set to be involved as Hibs travel to face the Jambos.
Zemmama came on at half-time in Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Dundee United having been out since March with a knee injury, while Duffy made his debut in the second half after suffering a fractured metatarsal days after arriving on a season-long loan deal from Bristol Rovers in August.
Michael Hart suffered a knock against United, but Sol Bamba played the full 90 minutes following a hamstring problem. Graham Stack (back) is still out.
