Injury issues to be aware of before the season starts.
Just wondering if you guys can think of any injury issues that could be important to know about before the season starts. I figure with the shortened season any injuries could have tremendous fantasy impacts because if a player misses 10 games then thats 1/5 of the season not 1/8.
I've included some players who may be ready to play just so people are aware their issue is resolved.
- Concussion - Cleared to play
- Surgery to remove blood clot/Treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome - Out Indefinitely
- Spine Surgery - ? (Takes 6 months to heal. 2 weeks ago he began skating)
- Blood clots - will not be ready for training camp
- Lacerated Neck - Should be ready for the beginning of the season.
- Hip Surgery - May
- Concussion - Cleared for contact
- Right Knee - 2-3 weeks
- Back Surgery - ? (Seeking Clearance)
Drew Doughty - Fat and Out of Shape - 200mi on the treadmill
- torn ulnar collateral ligament in left thumb - 3-4 weeks of rehab still
New York Islanders
- Concussion - TBD (feeling better early last week and is to resume skating Monday or Tuesday)
- Abdominal muscle tear - ?
New York Rangers
Michael Del Zotto
- mild back stiffness - Shouldn't be a problem
- Aggravated Groin - Ready to play
- Offseason Shoulder Surgery - Ready to play
- Shoulder - Ready to play
- Wrist injury - 2 weeks from 12/31
- Achilles - "Could miss start of season"
- Hernia Surgery - TBD
- Concussion - TBD
- Left shoulder surgery/Left wrist surgery - No timeframe
- Bruised Neck - DTD
- Wrist Surgery - 4-6 months (1/15 would mark about 4 months)
