Helm came up lame in Saturday's matinee against the Devils. The team is still trying to determine an exact prognosis for the speedy winger, but the news hasn't been promising since Helm left early in the first period of an eventual 3-2 overtime win.
Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) will play Saturday against the Clippers.
Hollis-Jefferson missed Friday's game against the Wizards, but needed just a one-game absence to get healthy. Over his past two appearances, he's averaged 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 block in 25.0 minutes.
Nelson will be in the lineup against host Minnesota on Saturday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
After spectating for four straight games, Nelson will tag in for Nathan Beaulieu, who is simply getting a night off. You would be hard-pressed to see any fantasy owner starting Nelson since he doesn't get much fanfare as an undrafted third-pairing defenseman. The 26-year-old with the right shot is from Minnesota, which probably factored into coach Phil Housley's decision to play him against the Wild.
Jones signed a contract with the Lions on Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Jones was waived by the Lions in early November after coming off the Physcially Unable to Perform list, and now rejoins the team with Marvin Jones (knee) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The 28-year-old is likely to remain in a depth role at wide receiver, but should see some snaps on special teams.
Beaulieu will be a healthy scratch against the Wild on Saturday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Beaulieu reportedly will be replaced by Casey Nelson in the upcoming contest. It actually has been a pretty strong start in the attacking zone for the former, as he's produced four points and a plus-6 rating over 12 games for the Swords.
