Joseph (lower body) will not be in action against Arizona on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Joseph has been practicing in a regular jersey but won't be ready to play Thursday. Still, the 25-year-old center appears to be nearing a return to action and could suit up sooner rather than later. Prior to his absence, Joseph was stuck in a six-game goalless streak during which he managed just six shots.
