Ekman-Larsson is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.
Ekman-Larsson was placed on injured reserve Sunday. According to Jose M. Romero of AZ Central Sports, the 29-year-old defenseman could miss up to four weeks. It's tough to pin down an exact timeline, but the Coyotes are planning to play without him for at least a couple of weeks.

Ekman-Larsson was already slated to miss at least two games but his placement on IR will hold him out for a minimum of three contests. The 29-year-old defenseman will first be available to return Jan. 24 against Vegas.
Ekman-Larsson will miss at least two games after suffering a lower-body injury in Saturday's win over the Sharks, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Ekman-Larsson took Evander Kane's stick to the back of his neck during Saturday's win, but it was his lower body that suffered the injury. Head coach Rick Tocchet declared Ekman-Larsson day-to-day, but the veteran blueliner won't be re-evaluated until the Coyotes return from their two-game road trip Thursday. In his place, Kyle Capobianco or Jordan Gross will enter the lineup.
Ekman-Larsson had to be helped off the ice after taking Evander Kane's stick to the back of his neck in the third period of Saturday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.
Per Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan, coach Rick Tocchet didn't have an update on Ekman-Larsson's status following the contest. OEL was having a big game prior to getting driven into the boards by Kane behind the Coyotes net, tying his career high with three assists, one of which came on the power play. Arizona's next game comes Monday in Vegas, and it wouldn't be a surprise if Ekman-Larsson isn't able to suit up.
Ekman-Larsson will remain with the Coyotes according to his agent, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
In somewhat dramatic fashion, Ekman-Larsson set a Friday deadline after expressing his willingness to waive his trade protection and accept a move to either Boston or Vancouver. If no deal came to fruition, he said he'd stay with the Coyotes -- which was his desire -- and it appears he's remained true to his word. OEL will continue anchoring the Arizona blue line, but with only 30 points (nine goals) in 66 games last year, fantasy managers should probably be a little concerned with his output going forward.
Ekman-Larsson has set a Friday deadline for a trade, reports NHL.com.
OEL wants to stay in the desert, but says he'd waive his no-move for a deal with either the Bruins or Canucks. He has a full no-movement clause as part of an eight-year, $66 million contract ($8.25 million AAV) that he inked July 1, 2018. But a change in ownership and management in Arizona has clearly changed the franchise's commitment to Ekman-Larsson.

Ekman-Larsson exited Friday's practice early after getting tangled up with a teammate and tumbling to the ice awkwardly, but it appears as though his departure was likely more of a precautionary measure than a necessity.
