Postma (lower body) will not suit up for Thursday night's contest in Los Angeles, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Postma will miss his third consecutive game Thursday, and considering the short turnaround, it's unclear whether he'll be ready to go for Friday's matchup in Anaheim. Either way, the 28-year-old has managed just two points in his last 11 games, so his absence is unlikely to be noticed by the majority of fantasy owners.
Postma (lower body) will be out of the lineup for Tuesday's clash with the Flyers, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Postma, who sat out Sunday's contest, has been a staple in the Jets' lineup all year long, as he has missed just seven outings this year. Although consistency is certainly important, the defenseman still averages only 10:51 of ice time and has tallied just one goal and 13 helpers. Unless he can secure more minutes and increase his offensive contributions, the 28-year-old will remain a low-end fantasy option.
Postma (lower body) did not take part in practice Monday, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Postma's absence from the session doesn't necessarily rule him out for Tuesday, but he will likely need to rejoin his teammates at the morning skate to be a lineup candidate. Expect further information on his status to arrive prior to the evening puck drop.
Postma will not play in Sunday's game against the Wild due to a lower-body injury and is considered day-to-day, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports. While Postma doesn't exactly light up the scoresheet, contributing 14 points (one goal, 13 assists) for the Jets this season. Brian Strait was recalled from the team's AHL affiliate Sunday and will likely draw into the lineup in his place, while Postma's next chance to play will come Tuesday against the Flyers.
Postma found twine for the first time this year Thursday, but he skated just 7:51 in an overtime loss to Pittsburgh. Nearly 28 years old -- his birthday's next week -- Postma has never lived up to the offensive prowess he showed off in juniors (where he once recorded 84 points) and the AHL (where he cleared 40 twice). He's nothing more than a bit player on the Jets' blue line, averaging a meager 10:48 of ice time, which makes it highly unlikely that Postma will recapture the old magic.
