Green's season-ending illness is not a long-term concern, per Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill. Green reportedly visited with a specialist, who recommended that the puck-moving defenseman simply rests for multiple weeks in order to treat a liver-attacking virus that's been reactivated after he dealt with the same issue at the beginning of the season. At any rate, it's safe to drop him in all redraft leagues at this time.
Green (virus) will miss the balance of the 2018-19 campaign. Green's focus is squarely on recovering from a liver-attacking virus that initially crept up on him in training camp and has unfortunately been reactivated. There was hope that the mobile rearguard would be fine to return after 7-to-10 days off the ice, but the Red Wings have virtually no chance of making the playoffs, so it makes sense that he's been shut down completely. This should open up more playing time for the newly acquired Madison Bowey, plus rookies Filip Hronek and Dennis Cholowski, assuming the latter ultimately returns from AHL Grand Rapids.
Green will miss 7-10 days due to the return of a virus that initially surfaced at the start of the season, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. This is discouraging news for Green, as the defenseman missed the first nine games of the 2018-19 campaign due to this virus, which attacks the liver. This issue rendered Green questionable for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, and while he ultimately appeared in that contest, the power-play quarterback went minus-2 with only one shot over 23 minutes of ice time in a 3-1 loss. Green is expected to miss at least five games while he's on the shelf this time.
As expected, Green (illness) will be in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Coyotes, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports. Green didn't practice Thursday due to an illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing Saturday's contest. The Red Wings will be happy to have the veteran blueliner on the ice against Arizona, as he's been on a roll recently, notching six points in his last six games.
Green is expected to play Saturday against the Coyotes, despite how he's been dealing with an illness, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. This news came straight from Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill and the team's official source, so we're quite confident that Green will be active for the next road game. He's accumulated five goals and 21 assists through 42 games, albeit with only three points (all assists) on the man advantage.
