The 28-year-old has been training with Palace this week and is likely to lead the line on Sunday after returning to the fold.
“He was very disappointed to miss those last two games, but he has been with us since having his test and it proving negative,” said Hodgson.
“So we have been able to enjoy his presence with us in training this week and he is fit and ready to play.”
Palace are still without about Connor Wickham, Nathan Ferguson and Wayne Hennessey through injury.
Hodgson confirmed, however, that Ferguson is progressing well and slowly being involved with the group.
