The Leinster duo picked up knocks in the second-half of Ireland's 22-19 loss to the All Blacks in Christchurch on Saturday.
D'Arcy has been replaced in the squad by Ulster's Paddy Wallace - who will arrive in New Zealand on Tuesday - after scans revealed a calf strain.
Heaslip suffered a fractured right index finger at AMI Stadium and while he finished the 80 minutes, he will not be fit for the remaining tour match.
Ireland have opted not to call-up a replacement given the existing back-row options in their squad.
Ireland skipper Brian O'Driscoll and tight-head Mike Ross both underwent x-rays on facial injuries in the wake of their defeat, although both have been passed fit to remain with the squad.
