  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: On long-term injured reserve

    Forbort (undisclosed) will be placed on long-term injured reserve Friday, per Matt Porter of The Boston Globe.

    Forbort is not expected to return this season, according to Conor Ryan of The Boston Globe. Forbort will probably conclude the 2023-24 campaign with four assists, 68 hits and 65 blocks in 35 appearances.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Not playing Thursday

    Forbort is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury and will not be in the lineup versus Toronto on Thursday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Forbort has missed four of the last five games, but he was previously considered a healthy scratch. He has four assists in 35 games this season. He has been serving as the Bruins' seventh defenseman of late.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Remains out of lineup

    Forbort will sit as a healthy scratch for a second straight contest Thursday versus Vegas.

    Forbort is in coach Jim Montgomery's dog house after missing a team meeting prior to Monday's game versus Seattle. The 31-year-old blueliner has managed just four helpers through 34 contests this season, so there's no reason for fantasy managers to track whether or not he's in Boston's lineup on a nightly basis.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Won't play Monday

    Forbort missed a team meeting and won't be in the lineup against Seattle on Monday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Forbort has yet to register a point in 14 games since returning from a long-term injury, so his absence Monday is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy managers. The blueliner registers plenty of hits and blocked shots, so he could offer some value in certain deeper formats. With Forbort out, Kevin Shattenkirk will enter the lineup.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Ready to return

    Forbort (undisclosed) will return to action Tuesday against the Flames, per Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald.

    Forbort will replace Parker Wotherspoon in the lineup following a one-game absence. The 31-year-old Forbort has contributed four assists, 15 shots on goal, 44 blocked shots and 38 hits over 24 contests this campaign.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Unavailable Saturday

    Forbort (undisclosed) won't play Saturday versus Philadelphia.

    Forbort has gone scoreless in four contests since returning from a 20-game IR stint. It's unclear if the same injury is keeping him sidelined Saturday, but the 31-year-old blueliner will look to return Feb. 6 versus the Flames following the All-Star break. Forbort has four assists and a plus-12 rating through 24 games this year. Kevin Shattenkirk is expected to rejoin the Bruins' lineup in his absence.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Returning vs. Montreal

    Forbort (undisclosed) will be activated from long-term injured reserve ahead of his return Saturday against the Canadiens, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald.

    After missing 20 games, Forbort appears ready to go Saturday. It's a significant boost for Boston's blue line, especially with Brandon Carlo expected back as well. The 31-year-old Forbort has four assists, 29 hits and 35 blocked shots in 20 games this season.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Might return Saturday

    Forbort (undisclosed) may be available for Saturday's clash with Montreal, Joe Haggerty of Bruins' Substack reports.

    Forbort looks poised to return from a 20-game absence due to his undisclosed injury, though he hasn't been officially confirmed to be in the lineup and will need to be activated off injured reserve before he can suit up. If the blueliner does play versus the Habs, it will likely mean a return to AHL Providence for Parker Wotherspoon, especially if fellow defenseman Brandon Carlo (upper body) is also given the all-clear.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Is week-to-week

    Forbort (undisclosed) has resumed skating and is now regarded as "week-to-week," coach Jim Montgomery told Conor Ryan of The Boston Globe on Thursday.

    Forbort hasn't played since Dec. 3 because of the injury. He has four assists, 29 hits and 35 blocks in 20 outings in 2023-24. When Forbort is healthy, Mason Lohrei might lose his spot on the third pairing.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Placed on long-term injured reserve

    The Bruins put Forbort (undisclosed) on long-term injured reserve Thursday, per Conor Ryan of Boston.com.

    Forbort saw a regular shift versus Columbus on Sunday, the last time the Bruins played. He has four assists, 35 blocked shots, 29 hits and 15 PIM in 20 games this season. In a corresponding move, the Bruins recalled defenseman Mason Lohrei from AHL Providence.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Set to play Thursday

    Forbort (lower body) is expected to play Thursday versus the Islanders, per Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic.

    Forbort missed three straight games due to his lower-body injury. He has two assists in eight contests this season. Forbort is projected to play on the third pairing alongside Kevin Shattenkirk on Thursday. With Forbort back in the fold, Parker Wotherspoon is set to serve as a healthy scratch after playing in Boston's previous three outings.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Will take warmups

    Forbort (lower body) could return against the Islanders on Thursday as long as he makes it through warmups without issue, Joe Haggerty of Bruins' Substack reports.

    Forbort looks set to return to the lineup following a three-game stint on the shelf due to his lower-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the veteran defender was stuck in a four-game pointless streak during which he recorded six shots, six blocks and five hits while averaging 19:40 of ice time. If Forbort suits up versus New York, Parker Wotherspoon is the most likely candidate to be scratched.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Not playing Monday

    Forbort (lower body) won't play in Monday's contest against the Stars.

Charlie McAvoy (suspension) and Matt Grzelcyk (upper body) remain out as well, so Mason Lohrei, Parker Wotherspoon and Ian Mitchell will stay in the lineup.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Out of action Thursday

    Per Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic, Forbort (undisclosed) will not play versus Toronto on Thursday.

    The Bruins are reeling on the blue line as Charlie McAvoy (suspension), Matt Grzelcyk (upper body) and Forbort will all be missing for Thursday's clash. Forbort will be replaced by Ian Mitchell. Forbort has two assists and is a plus-7 in eight games this season.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Questionable Thursday

    Forbort is questionable for Thursday's game versus Toronto due to an undisclosed injury, per Conor Ryan of Boston.com.

    Forbort has two assists in eight games while averaging 19:03 of ice time this season. He missed a game against Anaheim on Oct. 22 due to a groin injury but has since participated in four straight contests. If Forbort can't play Thursday, then Ian Mitchell, who was called up from AHL Providence on Wednesday, will likely draw into the lineup.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Good to go

    Forbort (groin) will be back in the lineup Tuesday against Chicago.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Won't play Sunday

    Forbort (undisclosed) will miss Sunday's game versus the Ducks, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Posts pair of helpers

    Forbort notched two assists, five hits, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Forbort helped out on second-period goals by Morgan Geekie and Brad Marchand as the Bruins established a lead. This was Forbort's first multi-point effort since Oct. 27, 2022, and it accounted for his first production of this season. The 31-year-old blueliner has added eight hits, 10 blocked shots, two shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-3 rating through four outings in 2023-24.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Playing against Panthers

    Forbort (lower body) will return to the lineup versus Florida in Game 1 on Monday, Conor Ryan of Boston.com reports.

    Forbort will be back in the lineup for the first time since March 16 against Winnipeg, a stretch of 15 games. Considering the blueliner has just one assist in his last 10 contests, fantasy managers probably shouldn't be expecting much in the way of offensive production out of Forbort.
