Head coach Dan Bylsma said Ennis' return is "not imminent," reports The Buffalo News. Bylsma also added that even though Ennis is working out daily, he's only just getting closer to week-to-week status. It has been a very trying season for Ennis, who has just 11 points in 23 games after finishing as the Sabres' top scorer last year. He was supposed to break out playing alongside Ryan O'Reilly or Jack Eichel, but instead his name has been tossed around in the rumor mill. Until he gets healthy and starts scoring again, it's better off leaving the slick but diminutive winger on the waiver wire in fantasy.
Ennis (upper body) is listed on injured reserved. On Jan. 2, it was announced that Ennis is week-to-week with his upper-body ailment and that appears to still be the case. Now that he's on IR, the Sabres have an open roster spot for another forward. The club has yet to announce who that replacement player will be, but Ennis is one of the top offensive producers for the Sabres and his absence will be felt.
Ennis is week-to-week with an upper-body injury, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports. It's a tough blow for Buffalo, as Ennis just returned to the Sabres' lineup on Dec. 19 after missing the team's previous 12 games with an upper-body injury. It isn't clear whether this latest ailment is a related issue, but either way, it will force Ennis to once again miss extended time. Given his recovery timetable, the former first-round pick will likely be placed on injured reserve to open up a roster spot during his absence. Expect an update on Ennis' status once he's able to return to practice.
Ennis (upper body) will be out of the lineup Thursday against the Islanders. Ennis has been plagued by injuries this season and will miss his 15th game of the season on Thursday. When healthy, the 26-year-old has been relatively productive, grabbing 11 points in 23 games. The winger is a liability on defense, however, consistently posting a negative plus-minus in each of his last three seasons.
Ennis (upper body) has been ruled out of the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Capitals. Ennis appeared to suffer the injury when he was hit by Washington's Alex Ovechkin in the second period of Wednesday's contest. It's an unfortunate turn of events for the 26-year-old winger, who has already missed 14 games this season due to injury. Expect an update on Ennis' status ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Islanders.
