Fisher (lower-body) skated this morning; questionable for Game 5.
Fisher took part in the morning skate, but Predators head coach Peter Laviolette had “nothing to report” on any of his injured players. Consider Fisher a game-time decision and monitor his status during pre-game warmups.
Fisher (lower-body) is not expected to play in Game 2.
Fisher left Game 1 after playing just 5:32 and did not return. He will be held out of Game 2, which means that Mike Santorelli will get into the lineup. Matt Cullen will be bumped up into Fisher’s spot on the second line.
Fisher (lower-body) returned to practice on Monday.
Fisher missed the final two games of the regular season, but returning to practice this morning suggests that Fisher is close to returning. There is no word whether he will be ready for game 1, but he is nearing a return.
Fisher (Achilles) is skating in a no-contact jersey.
This is the first time that Fisher has skated with his teammates since rupturing his Achilles in a training session this summer. He was expected to miss 4-6 months and mid-November will mark the four month point, so it looks like he is on track to return at the front end of that timetable.
Fisher (achilles) has resumed skating and hopes to return next month.
Fisher ruptured his Achillies in a training session this Summer. His original timetable was four-to-six months and next month will mark the four month mark. The Predators added a lot of veteran help at centre, so don't expect Fisher to rush back.
Fisher will miss 4-6 months after rupturing his Achilles during a training session in early July.
Fisher is expected to miss at least the first two months of the regular season. Fisher finished fourth on the Predators with 49 points (20G / 29A) in 75 games last season. With Fisher out, the Predators went out and singed Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy each to one-year contracts on Tuesday.
Fisher (lower-body) will take warmups and is a game-time decision.
Fisher has missed the last four games but could return tonight vs. the Penguins. If Fisher is unable to go tonight, he will likely play tomorrow vs. the Blackhawks. The Predators will hit the ice for warmups at 6:30 pm EST, his status should be known closer to puck drop.
Fisher will miss his third consecutive contest after being injured in the second period on October 2 versus Los Angeles. Fisher has been practicing, but consider him questionable for Tuesday when Nashville faces the Islanders.
Fisher has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury. Predators head coach Barry Trotz said there is a chance that Fisher could return to the lineup tonight. Fisher has two goals and three assists in seven games.
