Midfielder James McArthur is rated as only 50-50 to play for Wigan against West Brom on Saturday due to a dead leg.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez will again be without wingers Ryo Miyaichi (groin) and Albert Crusat (knee).
The Latics will be aiming to build on their shock 1-0 win away to Tottenham last weekend.
West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill is on stand-by to play his first senior game for the club in 21 months at the DW Stadium.
Myhill will step in if number one Ben Foster fails to recover from a recurring groin problem which resulted in him seeing a specialist in Germany on Thursday.
Key midfielder James Morrison will be available should he suffer no adverse reaction on returning to training after missing the 2-0 home win against Southampton on Monday with a hamstring injury.
