Coach Jon Cooper is "extremely optimistic" Stamkos will be ready to return once he's eligible to come off long-term injured reserve May 2.

Stamkos' placement on LTIR indicates he'll be out through at least through May 2.

Stamkos (lower body) won't play Thursday or Saturday against the Panthers, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Stamkos has already been sidelined for two games, so although the Lightning have yet to indicate he's dealing with a long-term injury, it's a little disconcerting that he's already been ruled out of Tampa Bay's next two contests.

The 31-year-old forward has racked up 17 goals and 34 points in 38 games this campaign.
Stamkos (lower body) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Predators, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Stamkos has 17 goals and 34 points through 38 games this season.
Stamkos (lower body) limped to the locker room during the third period of Thursday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
It's unclear how Stamkos got injured, but the report that he was limping is not a great sign. With the Lightning leading 6-2 at the time of Stamkos' injury, they may be cautious with the star forward. If he doesn't return to Thursday's game, his first chance to return would be Saturday in Nashville.
Stamkos picked up a power-play assist Thursday in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jackets.
