Defender Brian Easton is an injury doubt for Burnley.
Easton suffered a hip injury in Saturday's 3-1 derby win over Blackpool and was replaced by on-loan Manchester City defender Ben Mee, who is ready to reprise an unfamiliar left-back role.
Nevertheless, assistant manager Jason Tindall refused to rule Easton out altogether.
"Brian Easton came off quite early on Saturday but he's progressing well," he said. "He will be assessed again by the physios and hopefully they can give us some good news that he'll be available for selection."
Goalkeeper Brian Jensen (groin) and forward duo Martin Paterson (thigh) and Danny Ings (knee) remain sidelined but Tindall had better news on defender Michael Duff, who is stepping up his recovery from a knee problem.
He added: "Duffo is training with us, he's been back training the last few days. If you ask Duffo he'd probably say he could play (on Tuesday night) but we've got to be a little bit sensible and we're looking forward to having him back soon."
Captain Matt Mills comes back into the reckoning for Leicester.
Mills has served a three-match suspension following his straight red card in the 2-0 defeat at Midlands rivals Birmingham.
The club-record signing is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up and resume his central defensive partnership with Sol Bamba, meaning Sean St. Ledger will lose his place in the team.
Leicester are still assessing Darius Vassell and Lloyd Dyer. Dyer replaced Vassell at half-time during the defeat to West Ham on Saturday but then had to be withdrawn himself midway through the second half at Upton Park. Both players are nursing knocks and are doubts.
Academy director Jon Rudkin and coach Mike Stowell will remain in charge for the trip to Turf Moor. Leicester hope to appoint a successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson, who left the club a week ago, before the home game against Leeds on Sunday.
