Given the fact he's taking line rushes, it seems like Sissons will play after sitting out last game with an injury. With 10 points in his last 15 games across 14:40 of average ice time, the 27-year-old has been a pretty productive bottom-six asset.
Sissons (upper body) is considered day-to-day and will not play against Columbus on Monday.
I's unclear when Sissons sustained an injury but he was a late scratch for Monday's contest. He has just 15 points in 52 games this season but 10 of those have come over the last 15 contests. He'll be questionable for Wednesday's rematch with the Blue Jackets.

The 27-year-old only has two points through 11 games to begin the season, but at least both of them found the back of the net. Sissons has only scored double-digit goals once in a season in his career, so even his current modest pace could be tough to maintain.
Sissons notched his second point of the season Friday, scoring his team's only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Panthers.
With a career high of 15 goals back in 2018-19, Sissons has never been a big scorer. Instead, his value to the Predators can really be found in other areas -- defensive play, faceoffs, killing penalties, etc. -- something the Preds acknowledged when they locked him up to a seven-year deal back in 2019. That being said, fantasy managers should not assign him similar value. He simply doesn't rank well enough in any of the major stat categories to give him value outside of very deep leagues, so you should avoid using him if you can.
Sissons scored a goal on two shots and was plus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 win over Columbus. He also won six of 10 faceoffs.
Sissons broke in alone and beat Columbus goalie Elvis Merzlikins with a nifty backhand-to-forehand move, closing out the scoring with less than five minutes remaining. The 27-year-old ended the 2019-20 regular season with a 10-game goal drought, so it's encouraging to see him finding the net early in the year. Sissons scored between eight and 15 goals in each of the last four seasons, and he should push for double digits again, even with the abbreviated 2021 schedule.

Coming off a career-high 30-point season last year, Sissons got off to a terrific start this season with 10 points in his first 13 games. However, with just three points in his last 33 contests, it's been all downhill since then. To top it all off, Sissons' 12-game absence in January due to a lower-body injury has truly made this season one to forget. He's currently centering the Preds' fourth line between Austin Watson and Calle Jarnkrok, an assignment that provides very few opportunities to contribute offensively.
Sissons (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's game against the Devils, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Sissons has been sidelined for over a month with a lower-body injury, so he'll definitely have some rust to shake off against New Jersey. The 26-year-old, who's notched 13 points in 37 games this campaign, is expected to center Nashville's fourth line Thursday.
Sissons (lower body) won't play Wednesday but could rejoin the lineup either Thursday versus the Devils or Saturday against the Golden Knights, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
