Jakub Voracek Headshot

Voracek is fine and will play Saturday's outdoor game in Pittsburgh, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Turns out that the injury that Voracek suffered in practice is nothing serious and he'll be ready to go without missing his first game of the season. While he's not scoring at the outrageous clip that he showed in mid-December, he does have four points in his last six games and still averages 3:43 of average ice time on the power play.

Lamar Patterson Headshot

Patterson has signed a deal with the Hawks for the remainder of the season, Chris Vivlamore of AJC.com reports.

The Hawks initially held off retaining Patterson to keep a roster spot open for the trade deadline. Now that the deadline has passed and the team has an open spot on the roster, they've decided to sign Patterson for the remainder of the year. He's made four appearances with the Hawks this season, only seeing 7.5 minutes per game, so he'll likely remain largely irrelevant in the majority of fantasy circles.
8:00 pm (EST)
Ryan Kelly Headshot

Kelly and the Hawks have agreed on a contract through the end of this season, Chris Vivlamore of AJC.com reports.

Kelly was waived by the Hawks on Jan. 7 as a result of the trade that sent Kyle Korver to the Cavaliers, but has been re-acquired by the team. Kelly has only appeared in nine games this season, and will likely hold a similar role once more with the team, making him largely irrelevant in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.

Pekka Rinne Headshot

Rinne was the first on the ice for warmups and will start Thursday night's game against the Avalanche.

It's been an ugly last few outings for Rinne, as he's allowed four goals in each of three of his last four starts and has been pulled from two of them. Young backup Juuse Saros is still lurking from the bench, but the Predators still apparently have confidence in their veteran, at least for now. Rinne will have a chance to turn it around against a horrible Colorado offense that averages 1.79 goals per game on the road.
7:40 pm (EST)
Kevin Klein Headshot

Klein will not suit up for Thursday night's game in Toronto due to an upper-body injury.

Klein participated in Thursday's morning skate with seemingly no issues, but then did not come out for warmups and was ruled out shortly thereafter. Adam Clendening will draw into the lineup on the third defensive pairing with Klein sidelined.
7:28 pm (EST)
Chris Hatcher Headshot

Hatcher (oblique) is in camp and will compete for a bullpen job this spring, Cary Osbourne of Dodger Insider reports.

Hatcher was shut down last year after suffering a grade 3 oblique strain. The results were not pretty before the injury as he was hit to the tune of a 5.53 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 40.2 innings. The difference between last year's totals and the sub-four ERAs he posted in 2014 and 2015 was his inability to keep the ball in the yard (1.8 HR/9 in 2016). Now healthy, Hatcher will compete for a middle relief role in Dodgers' bullpen this season.
7:18 pm (EST)
Aron Baynes Headshot

Baynes (illness) will be available to play during Thursday's tilt against the Hornets, Aaron McMann of the MLive Media Group reports.

Baynes was previously listed as questionable after missing the team's morning shootaround, but is apparently feeling good enough to play. He should continue to get around 15-to-20 minutes per game behind starting center Andre Drummond.
7:11 pm (EST)
Jonathan Drouin Headshot

Drouin (illness) isn't on the ice for pregame warmups, indicating he won't play Thursday against the Flames.

With Drouin unavailable Thursday, the recently recalled Cory Conacher will get an opportunity to slot into the lineup against the Flames. Tampa Bay's next game isn't until Monday against the Senators, which could give Drouin enough time to overcome the illness that's keeping him out of Thursday evening's contest.
7:09 pm (EST)
Andrei Vasilevskiy Headshot

Vasilevskiy led his team onto the ice for warmups and will be between the posts for Thursday's matchup with the Flames.

There was a great debate amongst Tampa Bay beat writers about who would play Thursday, but it will be Vasilevskiy who draws the start after two games of rest. The 22-year-old goalie will be seeking his first win since Jan. 24 when he limited the Blackhawks to two goals on 36 shots and will have his work cut out for him against a Calgary team that is averaging 3.00 goals per game in February.
7:08 pm (EST)
Noah Vonleh Headshot

Vonleh will draw the start at power forward for Thursday's tilt against the Magic, Mike Richman of the Oregonian reports.

Coach Terry Stotts has opted to roll with Vonleh as his starting power forward next to Jusuf Nurkic now that the team has had more time to practice together after trading away their previous starting center, Mason Plumlee. Over his past 14 contests, Vonleh has averaged 4.2 points and 6.3 rebounds across 18.1 minutes per game, and will likely continue to have a similar role moving forward.
