Boss Alan Pardew opted not to risk him, and Dann watched on as Palace slipped to a 3-1 defeat against the Foxes.
However, he now looks set to face Liverpool and says it is crucial they bounce back from the Leicester defeat with a positive result against the high-flying Reds.
"We were obviously disappointed with the scoreline, it probably looked a bit more than what it actually was," Dann revealed. "To concede three goals was a bit harsh. For long periods it was a close game and they were more clinical, but we can still be better.
"Leicester are the champions, so for us they were just a little bit better in front of goal. We need to dust ourselves down now and get ready for another big game with Liverpool."
