Jose Theodore (groin) won't be back for at least another 4 to 6 weeks.
The goal is for Theo to play 2-3 games before the end of the season so is Fantasy season is essentially over.
Sounds like FLA G Jose Theodore (groin) will be out a minimum of 6 weeks but more medical evaluation is likely before an exact prognosis.
This is a tough break for the Panthers who lose their starter for a minimum of six weeks. Theodore was 4-6-3 with a 3.29 GAA .893 SV% at the time of the injury. This will open the door for Jacob Markstrom to take over as the starter and prove to the Panthers he belongs in the NHL. Scott Clemmensen will also see his fair share of starts.
Florida Panthers goalie Jose Theodore left Saturday night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes just more than two minutes in with what the team later called a lower-body injury.
Initial reports from Dineen said Theodore would be out a while so adjust your lineups as necessary. Markstrom could be a worthy flier if you're in a deep league.

Theodore will start for the Panthers.
Theodore releived the struggling Scott Clemmensen on Thursday after he allowed three goals on 10 shots. Theodore came in and stopped all 15 shots that he faced. He gets the start tonight vs. a Hurricanes team with a good offense.
Jose Theodore starts in goal for #FlaPanthers tonight vs Penguins
This will be Theodore's first start since last Monday when he lost 3-0. Theodore isn't a great fantasy option. He is only useful to play as a spot start against weak opponents, but even then there is no guarantee Florida will win. The Panthers take on Pittsburgh tonight so it is tough to put any confidence in Theodore.
#FlaPanthers goalie situation...Looks like Theodore tonight with Clemmensen as back up, and Markstrom tomorrow in Pitt.
Theodore has allowed 15 goals in his last four starts, all resulting in losses. Goaltending prospect Jacob Markstrom was just called up from the AHL so if Theodore does not start playing well, he will begin to lose starts. He also has a tough matchup tonight against a Flyers team coming off of two big wins in a row.
Looks like Jose Theodore in net for #FlaPanthers v #Leafs
Theodore has given up 12 goals in his last three starts, all of which resulted in losses. Theodore's 3.41 GAA and .892 SV% has hurt the Panthers this season, and has certainly hurt his fantasy value. He has a fairly good matchup tonight against Toronto.
Jose Theodore for the Panthers.
Theodore has lost his last two starts while posting a 3.23 GAA and .887 SV%, he has a tough matchup against the Lightning this afternoon.
#panthers José Théodore will face the Canadiens on Thursday.
Theodore is 4-5-0 with a 3.41 GAA and .890 SV%, those are not really encouraging numbers from a fantasy standpoint. I would look elsewhere for your fantasy netminder than Florida.
Prabably Holtby in net 1-4. 473 Gas vs Theo
Get past the grammar and know that Theodore will start after he got the shootout win in the Cats' last game. The Caps are proving to be a decent matchup so far but still possess enough weapons to give any goalie trouble.
Theodore will start tonight for the Panthers.
Neither Theodore or Clemmensen has played well this season. Theodore is 3-4-0 with a 3.32 GAA and .896 SV% which doesn't warrant much fantasy trust, especially on a bad Panthers team.
Jose Theodore in net for #FlaPanthers
Theodore just ended a 4 games losing streak with a win against the Jets, and will be back between the pipes this afternoon. Theodore and the Panthers are struggling to win games, there are much better fantasy goalie options.
Theodore between the pipes tonight for the Panthers.
Theodore has 4 straight losses coming into tonight. He is 1-4 with 3.48 GAA and .904 SV%. The Panthers have only won 1 game all season so look elsewhere for a fantasy goalie.
Theodore in net tonight for the Panthers.
Theodore got lit up for 3 goals on only 9 shots in his last outing vs. the Flyers. Tampa Bay is one of the NHL's highest scoring teams, Theodore could be in tough again tonight. Look elsewhere.
Theodore will be in net tonight for the Panthers.
Theodore has seen a lot of rubber early this season as opposing teams are averaging 38 shots a game on him. Florida just hasn't looked good offensively or defensively and that's a bad recipe for a fantasy goalie. For now stay clear of Theodore until the Panthers prove they can stop the other team and score.
Actually, I should say Drew Shore remains on third line with Matthias and Skille...that's where he was v Montreal #FlaPanthers #Sens
Theodore has been getting the lion's share of the work over Clemmensen.
Panthers José Théodore will face the Senators tonight.
Théodore had a great start to the season making 41 saves on 42 shots in a 5-1 win over the Hurricanes. The Sens were also winners in their season opener so one of these teams will lose their first of the season... Will it be Théodore or Anderson?
Good morning from Canada. Panthers-Senators tonight,7:30 Foxsportsflorida. Theodore vs Anderson in goal.
Theodore had a strong debut against Carolina, stopping 41 of 42 shots. He gets the nod again but expect Clemmensen to get his fair share of starts as well.
Theodore to start for the Panthers.
Theodore isn't a great fantasy option. He might be a worthwhile backup if the Panthers get off to a hot start.
It will be Martin Brodeur vs. Jose Theodore in Game 7 in Florida
Theodore is back in net after an injury held him out of a game 6 loss
