Wild's Matt Dumba: Won't be in action Thursday
Dumba (upper body) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup with Calgary but may still be an option against Colorado on Friday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Dumba will be shelved for his 12th consecutive contest but appears to be nearing a return to the lineup. In total, the 27-year-old blueliner has logged just 56 games this year which will likely stop him from reaching the 30-point threshold for the fourth consecutive year. At this point, Dumba's 50-point 2017-18 campaign was the exception rather than the rule.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Matt Dumba: Remains out Tuesday
Dumba (upper body) remains sidelined and will not play Tuesday against visiting Arizona, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.
Dumba will miss his 11th straight game. With only two contests left on the Wild's regular-season docket, it's looking increasingly less likely that he'll be able to get any tune-up action in before the postseason. The 27-year-old still doesn't have a timetable for a return.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Matt Dumba: Likely returning soon
Dumba (upper body) is expected to return during the regular season, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Wild's Matt Dumba: Hopeful for Game 1
Head coach Dean Evason said that Dumba (upper body) is a "wild card" for Game 1 of the postseason, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old blueliner is averaging 23:11 of ice time with 26 points through 56 games this season. He's already missed the last eight games and he won't be an option for at least the next two contests, though he will join the team in Nashville on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Matt Dumba: Not ready to play
Dumba (upper body) is skating with the team but won't be an option versus Vancouver on Thursday, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.
Considering the Wild are heading into a back-to-back, Dumba may be hard-pressed to suit up versus the Kraken on Friday, as well, though he hasn't been officially ruled out. Regardless, the defenseman will be out of action for his eighth straight contest due to his lingering upper-body issue.... See More ... See Less

Dumba (upper body) is skating daily with skills coach Andy Ness in Minnesota, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Dumba isn't traveling with the team for its current two-game road trip, but the fact that he's skating daily suggests he should be ready to return sooner rather than later. Another update on the 27-year-old blueliner should surface prior to Sunday night's game against San Jose.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Matt Dumba: Sitting out again Tuesday
Dumba (upper body) won't play Tuesday against visiting Edmonton, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

Wild's Matt Dumba: Could miss time
Dumba's upper body injury doesn't look good according to head coach Dean Evason, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Dumba exited Tuesday's game after the second period. Given Evason's comments, it's probably safe to assume Dumba won't play Friday versus the Blues, and he could be out beyond that contest. Jordie Benn would likely enter the lineup to replace him, though the Wild could also call up Calen Addison from AHL Iowa.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Matt Dumba: Exits contest
Dumba (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Predators.

Wild's Matt Dumba: Ruled out through road trip
Dumba (lower body) will not play during Minnesota's two-game road trip, including Thursday's matchup with the Flyers, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Dumba has been out of action since Feb. 12 versus Carolina and will have missed 10 games including the Wild's next two contests. The fact that the blueliner is traveling and skating with the team does seem to be a step in the right direction, though. With 20 points through 40 games this year, the 27-year-old Saskatchewan native should still have time to post his highest point total since 2017-18, when he racked up 50 in 82 games.... See More ...

Wild's Matt Dumba: Returning Saturday
Dumba (upper body) will be activated from injured reserve and play Saturday against visiting Carolina, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Dumba's injury absence lasted just two games -- a welcome sight for Wild fans and fantasy managers. His scoring pace (20 points in 39 games) and handful of defensive contributions (79 hits, 56 blocked shots) should make him a useful fantasy asset in plenty of fantasy formats in the unofficial second half of the season....
