Klein will not suit up for Tuesday night's game in San Jose after feeling some tightness in his back following Sunday's contest in Anaheim. This pesky back injury has been hampering Klein for the better part of the season's second half, and it's unclear at this point how it will affect him going forward. Between the injury problems and his limited effectiveness on offense, he's not a recommended play for the fantasy playoffs. Dan Girardi will slot back into the lineup Tuesday in Klein's place.
Klein (back) will slot into the lineup for Dan Girardi (healthy scratch) against the Ducks on Sunday. So ends a lengthy 16-game absence for Klein, though it's entirely likely that his minutes will be limited upon his return to the lineup. Either way, Klein's 14 points on the season limit his offensive upside and thus prevent him from being a suitable option on the blue line in the majority of fantasy formats.
Klein (back) won't play Saturday against the Kings. Klein has yet to play a game in March, and none since February 21. He has been cleared to play, and the latest reports indicate that he should be able to return Sunday or Tuesday.
Klein (back) has been medically cleared to play, but he still will not suit up for Tuesday night's away game against the Devils. He'll be with the team on its California road trip, meaning that he isn't likely to be ready for Wednesday's contest against the Islanders. With Klein and Dan Girardi (ankle) still ailing, the Rangers will have to dig into their defensive depth for at least another game or two before getting two of their go-to defensemen back in the lineup. That could include Steve Kampfer, who has notched two points in his last five games for New York.
Klein (back) skated during practice, but won't play in Tuesday's tilt in New Jersey, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. The defenseman has missed the last 13 games with his back injury, but still needs a bit more time off. With 14 points in 54 games, he isn't much of a fantasy threat unless in a league that gives weight to hits, of which he has 127.
