Liles was a healthy scratch for the eighth consecutive game Wednesday against Calgary. The veteran has suited up for just two of the past 20 contests and totaled only five assists through 31 games this season. Liles is completely off the fantasy grid at this stage of the game, and unless he draws into the lineup consistently and carves out a decent role, his virtual status is unlikely to change this year.
Liles was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Lightning. With the Bruins' top blueliners healthy at the moment, Liles and Joe Morrow are currently the odd men out on that front. Liles is presumably the next man up, however, the next time injuries hit. Through 29 games this season, the 36-year-old rearguard has logged five assists.
Liles (concussion) will draw into Sunday's lineup against the Hurricanes, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports. Liles return will provide the Bruins with a bit of a boost along the blue line, but his five assists in 22 contests don't make him a huge fantasy asset. His return removes Colin Miller out of the lineup Sunday and he will pair with Kevin Miller.
Liles (concussion) could return to action as soon as Sunday's game against the Hurricanes. Per coach Claude Julien, a decision on that front will be made after warmups Sunday, though with just five helpers over 22 games to date, Liles -- who the Bruins acquired from Carolina last February -- is off the fantasy radar in most formats.
Coach Claude Julien suggested that Liles (concussion) is inching toward a return to action. "I think he feels good enough that we'll probably have to make a decision on him sometime soon," Julien noted Friday. Liles, who suffered what the Boston Herald describes as a severe concussion back on Nov. 27, could add some veteran depth and leadership to the Bruins' blue line once he's available, but the 36-year-old hasn't been much of a fantasy factor this season, having logged five helpers over 22 games.
