Larsson was held out of Game 4 against the Blackhawks on Friday with a back injury, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Larsson was expected to be ready for Game 5, if needed, but the club couldn't extend the series long enough for him to return to action. Considering he managed just one point in his last 15 outings, the blueliner's absence likely didn't impact the majority of fantasy players. With limited offensive upside, Larsson figures to be a non-factor in fantasy contests.
Larsson (undisclosed) will miss Game 4 against the Blackhawks on Friday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.
Caleb Jones will remain in the Oilers' lineup with Larsson still out. The 27-year-old blueliner hasn't been much of a fantasy asset of late, registering just a single point in his last 15 appearances.
Larsson's (undisclosed) status for Friday's matchup with Chicago will be determined following Thursday's practice session.
Larsson was sidelined for Game 3 against the Blackhawks, which saw Caleb Jones make his postseason debut. Considering the blueliner has registered just one point in his last 15 appearances, his potential reintroduction to the lineup shouldn't factor into lineups for most fantasy players.
Larsson (undisclosed) will not play in Wednesday's game 3 versus the Blackhawks.
It's unclear why Larsson is unavailable for Game 3. He skated 21:18 with five hits and three blocked shots during a 6-3 win in Game 2. Caleb Jones is set to make his postseason debut in Larsson's place.
Larsson registered an assist, three hits and three blocked shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Larsson picked up his first point in seven outings with the helper on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' game-winner in the third period. The Swedish blueliner has six points, 89 hits, 73 blocks, 53 shots on goal and 33 PIM through 43 contests. With a defense-first role, Larsson doesn't contribute much from a fantasy perspective.
Larsson tallied a goal, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.
Larsson opened the scoring at 15:14 of the first period with a shot from distance. The Swedish defenseman snapped an 11-game point drought with his tally. He's up to five points, 74 hits, 68 blocks and a minus-4 rating in 36 appearances after missing time early in the year with a broken fibula.
Larsson has no points in his last six games.
In that span, the Swede has amassed 13 blocked shots and 13 hits with a plus-4 rating. Larsson has just four assists to go with 53 hits and 59 blocks through 30 games this season. He was just one of four Oilers to be held off the scoresheet in their 8-3 win over the Flames on Saturday.
Larsson recorded an assist, three shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.
Larsson had the secondary assist on Riley Sheahan's second-period tally. In his last four games, Larsson has dished three helpers to go with nine hits, eight shots and a plus-4 rating. The defenseman is up to five helpers, 40 hits, 46 blocked shots and 29 shots on goal in 24 games overall. His career high in points in 24, but it's doubtful 27-year-old comes anywhere near that mark in an injury-shortened campaign.
Larsson produced an assist and four hits in Monday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.
Larsson helped out on defense partner Oscar Klefbom's opening tally at 7:51 of the first period. The more defensive of that duo, Larsson has only three assists in 23 outings this season. He's added 45 blocked shots, 38 hits, 26 shots on goal and a minus-10 rating.
Larsson produced an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sabres.
The Swede snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper, but he only has two assists and a minus-12 rating in 21 games this year. He's added 32 hits and 42 blocked shots.
Larsson posted an assist in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Wild.

Larsson has no points and a minus-7 rating in his last 10 games.
He missed seven weeks with a broken fibula sustained in the season opener. Larsson has amassed 21 blocked shots, 13 hits, 17 PIM and 11 shots on goal since his return. The Swede has also averaged 17:03 per game. With the emergence of Ethan Bear this season, Larsson hasn't needed to play as many minutes as usual -- he has averaged at least 20 minutes per game in each of the last five campaigns. The lack of offense makes him much more valuable on the ice than in fantasy, however.
Larsson was assessed a major for elbowing and a game misconduct in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Avalanche.
Larsson caught T.J. Tynan with an elbow in retaliation for Ryan Graves' crushing hit on the Oilers' Alex Chiasson. Larsson was then assessed 15 PIM and left the game, accounting for his first penalties in five games this year. The high elbow could result in supplemental discipline, but perhaps the league will consider the in-game punishment sufficient for the Swede's misdeed.
Larsson (lower leg) blocked one shot and skated 13:37 in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Kings.
Larsson was sidelined by a broken fibula suffered in the season opener. It appears coach Dave Tippett will ease the blueliner back into action. Larsson has three hits and five blocked shots in two games -- those categories are his strongest from a statistical standpoint.
Larsson (lower leg) is on track to play Thursday against the Kings, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Larsson hasn't played season the season opener, and it appears he'll only have to sit out one more game -- Tuesday against the Sharks -- before returning to the lineup. The 27-year-old blueliner provides an offensive touch with 20 points over 82 games last season, although he earns a paycheck through his defensive work with 256 hits and 128 blocked shots in that span.
Coach Dave Tippett said Larsson (lower leg) won't be ready for approximately two more weeks, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
Larsson broke his fibula on Opening Night and was originally given a 6-8 week return timetable. If he can return in two weeks, he will have missed seven weeks with the injury. Larsson may be eased back into the lineup at first, but the defensively oriented Swede would likely end up alongside Darnell Nurse once he's up to speed.
Larsson will miss 6-8 weeks due to a fractured left fibula and has been designated for long-term injured reserve.
At a minimum, based on the short end of Larsson's recovery timeline, the blueliner will miss the next 16 contests, though it could certainly be longer. In 82 games last year, the Swede notched three goals and 17 helpers and likely would have pushed for the 20-point mark again this year. Joel Persson (shoulder) and Evan Bouchard figure to compete for the open spot in the lineup, while Matt Benning will likely slot into the top pairing with Darnell Nurse.
Larsson is sidelined with a broken bone in his foot, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
The injury occurred on a blocked shot in the first period of Wednesday's season opener versus the Canucks. With a long-term injured reserve status, Larsson would first be eligible to return Oct. 27 versus the Panthers, but an official timeline is unclear.

The Swedish blueliner skated 22:19 in the Oilers' season opener Wednesday and didn't seem to have an issue during the contest. Now that he's on long-term injured reserve, he'll be sidelined for a minimum of 10 games or 30 days.
Larsson compiled two assists to go along with another pair of blocked shots and six hits in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Kings.
Three Oilers defensemen -- including Darnell Nurse and Oscar Klefbom -- combined for seven points in the high-scoring affair. For Larsson, it was his first multi-point game of the 2018-19 campaign.
