Dann (knee) won't be risked for Saturday's game at West Brom, manager Neil Warnock told the Croydon Advertiser.

Dann (knee) sustained the injury during the defeat to Hull City earlier this month and manager Neil Warnock isn't willing to play him until he is 100 percent fit. "I would imagine it's looking doubtful with Scott at the moment," Warnock said. "He is training harder and doing more each day, but we're not going to play him unless he's 100 per cent and we're sure." Dann has two clean sheets so far this season and Palace will struggle to keep West Brom at bay considering central defensive partner Damien Delaney is also serving a one-game suspension.

Dann (knee) will miss three to four weeks with medial knee damage, according to the South London Press.

Dann (knee) left Saturday's game on a stretcher and a scan carried out by club medical staff revealed the extent of the damage on Monday. Dann definitely misses the visit of Chelsea on Oct. 18, the trip to West Brom on Oct. 25 and could even miss Sunderland's visit on Nov. 3. The central defender has already taken two clean sheets so far this campaign adding two assists and his partnership with Damien Delaney is critical to Crystal Palace's defensive success.

Dann (knee) was stretchered off in the 12th minute with suspected medial knee ligament damage in Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Hull.

Dann (knee) injured himself by blocking a shot and the full prognosis will be known once he has been for a scan. The centre back was replaced by Adrian Mariappa with Martin Kelly moving to centre back for the remainder of the 90 minutes. Dann could still return after the international break just so long as the damage isn't as bad as first feared.

Dann registered an assist and a clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 over Leicester.

Dann headed a corner towards goal that was tapped in by Fraizer Campbell for the first goal in the 51st minute. The centre back has formed a formidable partnership with Damien Delaney since arriving in January and at home the two look like a good bet for a clean sheet most weeks.

Dann recorded a first clean sheet of the season in Saturday's 0-0 draw at home to Burnley.

Dann hit the bar with a header in the first half and had goalkeeper Julian Speroni to thank for the clean sheet after he saved a penalty kick.

Dann returned to the starting line-up with an assist during Saturday's 3-3 draw with Newcastle.

Dann replaced Brede Hangeland in manager Neil Warnock's first starting line up as Crystal Palace boss. Dann headed the ball down for Wilfried Zaha's late equaliser in the club's draw at Newcastle on Saturday. Palace have now conceded eight goals in three Premier League games and fantasy owners should be wary when selecting him for clean sheet bonuses.

Dann (knock) is “back in contention” ahead of Saturday’s game at Newcastle United, reports the club website.

Dann left the first game of the season at Arsenal with an injury that meant he was missing for last weekend’s defeat against West Ham United and was replaced by Damien Delaney. Dann is first choice at centre back and once he strikes up a partnership with Brede Hangeland there is definite fantasy potential for at least seven clean sheets as well as the odd goal.

Dann (quad) failed to shake off an injury in time to take his place in Saturday’s game against West Ham United.

Dann was replaced in the starting line-up by Damien Delaney in what was a 3-1 defeat for Crystal Palace. Once the central defender is fit he will slot back into the team and remains a good bet for clean sheets in a resolute defence.
