Hearts have sent Andrew Driver and Marius Zaliukas to specialists in a bid to resolve recurring injuries. England Under-21 winger Driver, who missed the start of the season with a foot injury, has been troubled by a knee problem.
Defender Zaliukas has only played three times this season after picking up an ankle injury since returning from a four-match suspension.
"Driver had no pre-season and is having a problem with his knee all the time," boss Csaba Laszlo told the Edinburgh Evening News.
"He is going to London to see a specialist and so too is Zaliukas to see about the problem with his ankle."
