Jonny Hayes (calf), Willo Flood (ankle) and Peter Pawlett (groin) are all rated doubtful for the Dons.
Winger Andrew Driver could make his debut after scoring in a development game, while defender Russell Anderson (knee) remains out.
Dundee boss Paul Hartley is waiting on the fitness of striker Greg Stewart who is rated as touch and go.
Gary Irvine, Jim McAlister, Luka Tankulic and Gary Harkins will all miss out but Iain Davidson and Paul Heffernan could return to the squad.
Aberdeen, who trail leaders Celtic by three points, won 3-2 at Dundee back in October, although they also suffered a 2-1 away defeat to the Dark Blues in the Scottish Cup in November.
Dundee are currently two points behind St Johnstone with a game in hand over their rivals, and will be hoping to leapfrog them into the top six with a victory.
