The pair were injured in the 19-17 loss to France, with Lamont damaging ligaments in his right knee during the first half, while Beattie suffered a knock to his right ankle. A call will be made on the fitness of prop Ryan Grant later in the week after Scotland team doctor James Robson revealed that he had an issue with his hip/abdomen.
According to the Scottish Rugby Union, seven other players have problems which are not thought to be serious.
