The trio were brought to Elland Road by former boss Terry Venables, but it would seem Reid wants to assess other options as he fights to lead The Whites away from the drop zone.
The move is sure to cast doubt over the long-term future of Lucic, who is only on loan from Swedish side AIK Solna.
Raul Bravo is also on loan from Real Madrid, but the Spaniards said at the time of his transfer that he would return to Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.
In other news, that is sure to come as a fillip to Leeds fans, Reid has opted to restore Alan Smith to the front line.
Venables fielded the young firebrand in a midfield role, but Reid is set to let him partner Mark Viduka in attack, with Australian ace Harry Kewell expected to return to the left wing.
Commenting on his decisions, Reid said: "I feel this squad is the right squad to go down there and compete against Charlton.
"When I have managed sides against Leeds I have always been a wee bit scared of their attacking prowess and Alan Smith was one of the players you worried about, so he'll start up front."
