Predators' Scott Hartnell: Gearing up to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hartnell (lower body) has been activated from injured reserve and took part in line rushes during morning skate, indicating he'll return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup versus the Canucks.

While technically a game-time decision, look for Hartnell to return and assume a spot on the fourth line. He missed a month's worth of games with his ailment, so it's no surprise to see the gritty Canadian being eased back into the fold. The veteran winger has posted four goals and three assists against a poor minus-8 rating through 16 games this season.

Warriors' Nick Young: Out Thursday vs. Mavericks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Mavericks, Melissa Rohlin of the Mercury News reports.

Young suffered a concussion in Monday's game against Portland and wasn't able to practice Wednesday, so his absence for Thursday's contest doesn't come as much of a surprise. He'll need to go through a controlled practice before being cleared for a return, so look for another update once he's done so. Young is averaging just 13.1 minutes per game this season, so his absence shouldn't have a drastic impact on the regular rotation. If anything, look for a guy like Patrick McCaw or Omri Casspi to pick up a few more minutes on the wing.

Predators' Ryan Johansen: Ready to rock Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johansen (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and participated in line rushes during morning skate, indicating he'll return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Canucks.

Johansen is technically considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest, but all signs point to the 25-year-old pivot returning to action after missing the Predators' last three games due to an upper-body injury. If he plays as expected, Johansen will center Nick Bonino and Victor Arvidsson on Nashville's third line against Vancouver. The 2010 first-round pick has picked up three goals and 17 points in 26 matches this season.

Suns' Isaiah Canaan: Active and available to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canaan will be active and available to play in Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

Canaan signed with the Suns earlier Wednesday, but will waste no time getting integrated with his new team and is set to be immediately available for his debut. He'll likely be third on the point guard depth chart behind Tyler Ulis and Mike James, but could also see time helping out at shooting guard behind Josh Jackson and Troy Daniels with Devin Booker (groin) out for a few weeks. That said, Canaan likely won't see enough minutes to be fantasy relevant in the majority of leagues, at least right away, so it's a situation to monitor at best right now.

Sharks' Barclay Goodrow: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrow (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Goodrow isn't expected to return to the lineup until Monday against the Oilers at the earliest, so this move doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 24-year-old forward has been solid in limited action this campaign, tallying two goals and four points in nine contests.
