McNamara was rushed to hospital with a suspected dislocated shoulder following a clash with Fernando Pasquinelli during his side's 2-0 win over Livingston.
Tests have shown no break, but the Scottish international has suffered ligament damage and he will miss the trip to France
McNamara joins Alan Thompson and Didier Agathe on the absentee list as they are missing through suspension and injury respectively.
Balde is a doubt with a back injury picked up against Livingston and Bhoys boss Martin O'Neill will assess his fitness before deciding on his participation.
"Bobo still has a sore back but he is improving and we'll keep a close eye on him over the next day or two," said O'Neill.
