  • Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Unlikely to play Tuesday with illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4:36 pm ET) Okposo (illness) is doubtful to play Tuesday against the Blue Jackets.

    After recently returning from missing 10 games to a rib injury, Okposo will likely watch this one from the sidelines. In the last four games he has played, though, the 28-year-old notched one goal and five assists. If he is unable to play in Columbus, he'll have four days to recover before his next opportunity to play at home against the Islanders.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Back in tow Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/17) Okposo (ribs) will return Saturday, when the Sabres play host to the Maple Leafs.

    Here's an activation that you won't want to sleep on in fantasy circles. Okposo is a power-play weapon, fashioning 19 goals and 24 assists -- along with 22 points on the man advantage -- through 63 contests this campaign.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Could play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Okposo (ribs) returned to practice Thursday and has a solid shot to play Saturday against the Maple Leafs, barring any setbacks.

    Okposo, who last suited up March 2, approaches his pending return with 19 goals and 43 points to his credit over 63 games. Look for further clarification of his status in advance of Saturday's tilt, a game in which William Carrier and Dmitry Kulikov are also candidates to return to the lineup. This allows head coach Dan Bylsma to even out the scoring a little bit, and perhaps move Sam Reinhart back to Jack Eichel's right wing and put Ryan O'Reilly and Okposo back together.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Returns to ice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/17) Okposo (ribs) is skating again, The Buffalo News reports.

    Okposo has already missed 10 games, and despite a three-day break before facing the Leafs on Saturday, he's expected to be back "next week," according to head coach Dan Bylsma. There is no exact date set for his return, and with the Sabres out of the playoff race, there's no real hurry either. Okposo has been a very welcome addition to the Sabres' offense this season, scoring 19 goals and 43 points in 63 games -- his fourth straight campaign with at least 40 points. He's a mid-tier fantasy option that can provide some good value in deep leagues, but won't really help owners win championships.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Will not play Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/17) Okposo (ribs) will not play Tuesday against the Sharks.

    It's been almost two weeks since Okposo's week-to-week diagnosis, and he doesn't appear to be any closer to returning. Okposo hurt his ribs after crashing into the boards March 2 against Arizona, but he hasn't been placed on injured reserve nd there is no date set for his return. Meanwhile, Brian Gionta is expected to be the top-line right winger alongside Ryan O'Reilly and Evander Kane.
