Gaborik (upper-body) could be back in the Kings’ lineup on Tuesday.
Gaborik was a full participant in Kings practice on Sunday and could be back tomorrow vs. the Sabres. He has missed the last there games with an upper-body injury, but should be back on a line with Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams on Tuesday. He has eight points (4G / 4A) in 15 games this season.
Gaborik continues to skate with the Kings and he said that he should be back soon, but doesn’t know if he will travel to Arizona for Thursday’s game. Seems like he will be out tomorrow but should be back in the lineup come Saturday, back at home vs. the Flyers.
Gaborik (upper-body) is not expected to play on Tuesday.
Gaborik was on the ice for the Kings morning skate, but did not participate in line rushes and stayed on as an extra. It looks like he will miss his second straight game but his availability this morning is a good sign for Thursday vs. Arizona.
Gaborik missed Saturday’s game with a “minor” upper-body injury.
There is not much information about the nature or the severity of Gaborik’s injury. The Kings don’t play again until Tuesday, so expect a more detailed injury report in the coming days and monitor his status leading up to Tuesday’s game vs. the Bruins.
Gaborik (undisclosed) is on the ice for presume warmups; looks like he will return today vs. Carolina.
Gaborik said on Saturday that he was "very close" to returning, looks like he was not kidding and he will be back today. Gabo missed the last eight games with an undisclosed injury, but look for him to skate on the top-line today vs. the Canes. He had one assist in three contests before being hurt.
Gaborik (undisclosed) is likely to start skating next week.
Gaborik was not on the ice this afternoon but was around the Kings' facilities. The belief is that Gaborik will begin skating on his own early next week and work his way towards joining the team by the end of the week. So by the sounds of things, expect Gabo to miss another 10-14 days.
Gaborik (undisclosed) is out, no timetable for his return.
Per reports, this injury is not new, it is the same injury that bother Gaborik in the preseason, but it sounds like he will miss some time.

The Kings have signed Marian Gaborik to a seven-year contract extension worth $34.3 million.
The Kings acquired Gaborik for a very reasonable price at the trade deadline and what they got in return was 16 points (5G / 11A) in 19 regular season games and then he went on to lead the playoff in goals with 14, while adding eight assists en route to a Stanley Cup win. The longterm deal has him signed until he is 39, which is alarming, but the annual cap-hit of just $4.9 million is reasonable for a player of Gaborik's caliber.
Gaborik is skating on the top-line with Anze Kopitar and Justin WIlliams.
Gaborik was acquired on Wednesday in the hope that he will spark the Kings offensively. Putting him on a line with Kopitar certainly increases his fantasy value, but hopefully for his fantasy owners, he can be defensively responsible enough to stay in coach Sutter's good graces.
Gaborik is expected to make his Kings debut on Thursday in Winnipeg.
Following being traded by the Blue Jackets to the Kings, Gaborik jumped on a play to meet his new teammates in Winnipeg. Gaborik is a speedy winger who has battled injuries throughout the season, but is an elite NHL goal-scorer when healthy. He has just 18 goals and 23 assists (41 points) in 69 games dating back to last season, but in 2011-12 he had 41 goals (76 points) in 82 games with the Rangers. He will step into the Kings' top-6 and help their 27th ranked offence. The Kings have no problem playing defence, but Gabo should see time on Anze Kopitar's line, a duo that should be pretty dynamic.
The Blue Jackets have traded Gaborik to the Kings for Matt Frattin, a second-round pick and a conditional third-round pick. Columbus will also retain a large portion of Gaborik's contract.
The Kings have struggled to score this season, so acquiring Gaborik should help that problem. Gaborik is a dynamic scorer, but has missed the majority of the year with injuries. He has six goals and eight assists (14 points) in 22 games this season. He will head to the Kings and could find himself on a line with Anze Kopitar.
