Killie could be without new signing Jorge Galan.
The striker has joined on a season-long loan from Osasuna but the Rugby Park side are still waiting for international clearance.
William Gros is struggling with a knock, while Danny Racchi is likely to be sidelined for another week with a back problem.
Junior Agogo, Isaiah Osbourne and Phil Airey could all make their Hibs debuts in Sunday's game.
Agogo is fit following a thigh strain and joins this week's captures Osbourne and Airey in the squad, while a late decision will be made on Sean O'Hanlon (broken toe).
Martin Scott (knee) is fit again, but Michael Hart (groin), Akpo Sodje (knee) and Sean Welsh (cheekbone) remain out.
Kilmarnock (from): Bell, McKeown, O'Leary, Fowler, Kroca, Harkins, Silva, Buijs, Dayton, Pascali, Kelly, Shiels, Hutchinson, Heffernan, Hay, Ada, Jaakkola, Pursehouse, Galan.
