The 26-year-old missed the first month of the campaign due to ankle surgery over the summer but has now featured from the bench in the Blues' last three games against Leicester City, Qarabag and Arsenal.
Conte admitted that he has been cautious in easing the Belgian back into action but is now considering giving him a first start of the season in the cup encounter with the Championship side.
"The last 20 minutes [against Arsenal], Hazard played very well," Conte told the Evening Standard after his side's goalless draw with the Gunners this afternoon.
"Now, on Wednesday, he will have the possibility to start the game against Nottingham Forest and complete his recovery. We hope that everything is okay after this game."
Hazard was a key component of Chelsea's Premier League title success last season, scoring 16 goals and creating five more.
