Hiddink has seen a number of key players pick up injuries this season, with Ball damaging a knee against Groningen in September and Lucius out with a hamstring injury since the start of October.
Lucius is ready to return to full training next week, with a return to action set to follow shortly afterwards, while Ball has been given the green light to step up his rehabilitation programme.
It had initially been thought that Ball would not return before January, but the full back is eager to take to the field before Christmas.
