Yannick Cahuzac misses out for Bastia, for whom Gael Angoula
Sylvain Marchal, Mattheiu Sans and Florian Marque and Salim Moizini are all doubts.
The Corsicans will also be without Wahbi Khazri and Sambou Yatabare, who are both at the African Cup of Nations.
Reims take on Bastia at the Stade Auguste Delaune hoping to earn their first victory since the win over Nice back in October.
Hubert Fournier's men have taken just six points since that triumph, and will hope they can turn their fortunes around against a Bastia side that is well known for its entertaining style of play.
The men from Corsica are a free-scoring side, but they will be without playmaker Wahbi Khazri - who is at the African Cup of Nations - and possess one of the worst defences in the country.
Reims striker Gaetan Courtet will try to take advantage of the visitors' defensive fallibility, and if he can produce some of the form he displayed in the early stages of the campaign, then the home fans may finally be able to celebrate another win.
