The 29 year-old was withdrawn from the England squad to face Slovenia and Scotland after picking up the problem in training with the England squad but fears that he would be out for a period of weeks have been allayed.
Everton expect him to be out for between 7 to 14 days.
Though he is an early doubt for the Hammers game, Baines will be given every opportunity to prove his fitness, with Bryan Oviedo and Luke Garbutt waiting in the wings should he need additonal time to recover.

He works hard every game and recently has been getting back to his best so let's not take any risks bringing him back too soon.

We need a win on Saturday... although, the way this season is going, I'd take a draw.

The Baines injury could bite back. His deputy looks, as is, more than useful.
