I take approx 5400mg ibuprofen daily for osteoarthritis hip pain. Can I still take it prior to cortisone injection?

It is not safe to take 5400 mg of ibuprofen per day, so you would be wise to see a rheumatologist for a better (and safer) way to control your osteoarthritis in your hip. I am sorry, but I do not know the medical details of your particular case to know if a cortisone injection is appropriate.
