Rooney's point drought reached 13 games in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Colorado.
Rooney has just one assist without a goal in 22 appearances this season. The 26-year-old fourth-liner can continue to be ignored in all fantasy formats.
Rooney (upper body) will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Rangers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Rooney, who's missed the Devils' last seven games due to an upper-body injury, will return to a bottom-six role against New York. The 26-year-old pivot has only notched one helper in 13 games this campaign, so his return to action will undoubtedly go unnoticed in fantasy circles.
The Devils placed Rooney (upper body) on injured reserve Thursday.
Rooney will be eligible to be activated whenever he's deemed fit to play, but at this point there's no telling when that might be. Either way, the 26-year-old forward has only picked up one assist in 13 games this campaign, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to track his status.
Rooney (upper body) is ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

With a back-to-back on the schedule, Rooney may be hard pressed to get into action in Saturday's meeting with Montreal as well.
Rooney was absent from Thursday's practice session due to an upper-body issue, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Rooney has just one point in 13 games this season, so his potential absence for Friday's clash with Pittsburgh wouldn't have too much fantasy impact. If the Massachusetts native in unable to give it a go, Jesper Boqvist figures to slot into the lineup in his stead.
Rooney was reinserted into the lineup for Thursday's 5-2 win over the Rangers, taking one shot in 17:01 of ice time.
The fourth-line center dressed for just the fourth time this season, but he saw a season high in minutes thanks in large part to his penalty killing ability. Rooney skated 3:17 shorthanded and blocked a shot. This effort will likely keep Rooney in the lineup moving forward, but that shouldn't matter much to fantasy owners given his limited offensive ability.
Rooney dished out an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Florida, finishing the season with six goals and four helpers in 41 games.
Rooney was a warm body for the injury-riddled Devils, but he'll be 26 by the time next season rolls around and has shown no indication that he's ready to be a fantasy factor. Just turning into a replacement-level NHL player would be a step up for Rooney.
Rooney netted his sixth goal of the season in a 3-2 shootout win over the Canucks on Friday.
Rooney has three points in his last two games, giving him nine in 31 contests this year. The center also has 59 hits and 27 shots on goal. He's shooting 22.2 percent this season, which is likely an unsustainable pace for the 25-year-old in the long run.
Rooney scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.
In his second game back from an illness, Rooney played a big role in the high-scoring win for the Devils with the two points. His assist came on Kenny Agostino's opening goal, and Agostino returned the favor as Rooney completed a three-goal second period for the Devils that tilted the game in their favor. Rooney has five goals and three helpers in 30 games this year, so his fantasy appeal is limited despite his usage as a second-line center on the injury-stricken squad from New Jersey.
Rooney (illness) had three hits and won nine of his 17 faceoffs in a 9-4 loss to the Flames on Tuesday.

Rooney (undisclosed) won't play Friday against the Capitals, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Rooney's absence will test New Jersey's depth up front, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only totaled six points in 28 games this campaign. At this point, the 25-year-old pivot should be considered a long shot for Saturday's matchup with the Rangers.
