Okposo contributed two assists Wednesday in a 6-1 win over the Flyers. The Sabres snapping an 18-game losing skid masked the fact that Okposo has recorded at least one point in five straight games, with the hot streak sandwiched around an upper-body injury that had cost him three contests. It's generally difficult to trust Buffalo's skaters in fantasy these days, but Okposo has low-end value amid his surge.
Okposo (upper body) has been activated off injured reserve and will return to the lineup Saturday against Boston, John Vogl of The Athletic reports. Okposo is expected to skate on the Sabres' fourth line and second power-play unit following his three-game absence. The veteran winger has notched five points in 24 contests this season.
Okposo (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Okposo was already essentially ruled out for the remainder of the Sabres' road trip, which ends Saturday in Boston. The 32-year-old winger's first expected chance to return is Monday versus the Flyers, but there's been no indication he'll be ready at that time.
Okposo (upper body) isn't expected to be available for the final three games of the Sabres' current four-game road trip, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports. Okposo already missed Monday's game versus the Rangers, and it appears as though the veteran forward will miss at least three more contests. Either way, Okposo's only notched five points in 24 games this year, so his absence won't impact many fantasy lineups.
Okposo (upper body) will not be available for Monday's game against the Rangers, John Vogl of The Athletic reports. Interim head coach Don Granato said that Okposo's injury flared up after practice but it's unclear exactly how severe the injury is. The 32-year-old didn't travel with the team but could join it during the current road trip. He'll be questionable for Wednesday's game in Pittsburgh.
