The Lorient forward will fly in for Sunday's match from France, where he returned last week after suffering a thigh injury in the group stages of the tournament.
Traore was ruled out for up to six weeks after being taken off early in Burkina Faso's final Group C match in Nelspruit on January 29, a goalless draw with champions Zambia that ensured they were the surprise winners of the pool.
The 25-year-old had shone before his injury with three goals in their opening two games - a 1-1 draw with Nigeria, where he scored with the last kick of the game, and a 4-0 thumping of Ethiopia.
He returned to France to have the injury assessed at his club but with Burkina Faso making it all the way to the final for a first time, Traore will be hoping to witness an unlikely victory at Soccer City.
