Andy Halliday hopes to be fit for Hearts’ Premiership clash with Aberdeen on Sunday.
The midfielder was forced off with a knock halfway through his side’s 3-2 defeat at Celtic Park last week.
Robbie Neilson will also assess fitness issues for Gary Mackay-Steven and Josh Ginnelly while Armand Gnanduillet could return after missing the Celtic game for personal reasons.
The Dons will be without Andy Considine and Ryan Hedges.
Considine was carried off with a knee injury during the European defeat by Qarabag and Hedges remains out with a hamstring problem.
Both players will be properly assessed next week
