Centre-forward Rhodes's second spell at Huddersfield was just three games old when he succumbed to a back injury he had been suffering in pre-season and he has not featured since.
But having got some B team football and goals under his belt, he is ready to play a part at home to Coventry City.
"Rhodes is a player with a lot of experience in the Championship to know the resources a striker has to have," said the Spaniard.
"Rhodes is a player inside the box who has a special instinct to finish the attacks and create and score goals."
Playmaker Sinani missed the disappointing draw at Oakwell with Covid-19, but is the only confirmed case in the Terriers camp.
"He has had Covid since the Wednesday before Barnsley so was not involved there. If he tests negative (on Saturday) he'll come back to training next week.
"The symptoms started on Wednesday and disappeared on Friday."
