Hines recently underwent anterior cruciate ligament surgery and he will be out for at least six months.
Daggers physiotherapist John Gowens told the club's official website: "He's been through this before at West Ham, so he does know the routine and procedure in regards to recovery.
"Psychologically he will be in a stronger position than someone who hasn't had this type injury and he's also ready for what's ahead.
"Zavon is a positive person and I'm sure he will make a full recovery and I am also sure that he will be back soon."
