11 points separate the two sides ahead of kick-off, with the hosts sat in second whilst Forest sit two points outside the play-offs in seventh. Bournemouth are four points above third-placed Blackburn Rovers, and will be looking to capitalise on their poor recent form to stretch the gap between them to seven points.
Jefferson Lerma will miss out through suspension.
Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba is serving the first game of his ban after a straight red card against Stoke City last time out, with Ethan Horvath expected to make his first appearance since September in his place.
Bournemouth: Travers, Stacey, Phillips, Kelly, Zemura; Cantwell, Cook, Billing; Anthony, Solanke, Dembele
Nottingham Forest: Horvath, Worrall, Cook, McKenna; Spence, Garner, Yates, Lowe; Zinckernagel; Johnson, Davis
Ones to watch
Since joining Forest on loan from Aston Villa in January, Keinan Davis has dazzled doubtful supporters with a string of strong performances in the absence of captain Grabban, scoring twice and assisting twice in his maiden eight games for the club.
The last time the two sides faced off was on matchday two at the City Ground, where a David Brooks red card wasn't enough to spur a Chris Hughton Forest side into coming back in a 2-1 win for The Cherries, with a goal from Scott McKenna to equalise after a goal from Brooks being cancelled out by Philip Billing.
The match is on Friday, February 18, and will kick off at 19:45 GMT. Coverage of the game will be available from 19:00 GMT on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football.
