Coach Dean Evason said Sunday that he expects Bonino to be cleared from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol "soon," Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
The Wild continue to manage the virus outbreak that has left eight players currently in the league's protocol. Bonino has had a quiet season after being acquired via trade from Nashville this offseason, accumulating two points and 19 shots across 16:54 of average ice time in 11 games. Bonino's status -- as well as the entire Wild lineup -- remains uncertain as the team is set to resume game action Tuesday against the Kings.
Bonino was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocol Wednesday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
The 32-year-old was one of six players placed on the list for the Wild on Wednesday.

The veteran is off to a slow start this year, compiling two points across 11 games.
Bonino has one assist, nine shots and a minus-4 rating over his past five games.
The 32-year-old began the season on the second line after he was acquired via trade from Nashville this offseason, but he's since dropped to the fourth line. Bonino has seemed to shift his style to more of a heavy game in the past five outings, racking up 11 blocked shots of 17:05 of ice time. The good news is that Bonino is still seeing second-unit power-play time, but it's yet to translate to offense this year.

The 32-year-old, acquired via trade from Nashville in the offseason, hasn't reached the 20-goal mark since 2013-14 with Anaheim, but he could be a useful waiver wire addition if he can continue to take advantage of his power-play time.

The 32-year-old collected his first point of the season Saturday, and first as a member of the Wild, after he was acquired from the Predators this offseason. Not only has Bonino shored up center ice in the early going on the defensive end, he's also added some offense, including averaging 3:13 of power-play ice time through the first two games. Look for Bonino to surge to at least a modest half-point per game this season if he continues to see opportunities in a top-six role and on the power play.

Bonino ended a four-game mini slump with the tally Monday. He's at 18 goals, 35 points, 100 shots and a plus-17 rating in 63 appearances. He's not likely to surge to match his career high of 49 points from 2013-14, but the 31-year-old center could still reach the 40-point threshold.

Bonino (illness) has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Bonino's unexpected absence seemed to require an explanation given his five points in the last seven contests, and now we have one.
