Bailey missed the morning skate with a lower-back issue but will play in Carolina.

Bailey didn’t skate this morning, but head coach Barry Trotz said there is a “0.0% chance” that he won’t play tonight. Bailey is coming off of the best season of his career (18G / 53A / 71P) and will start the year on the top line with Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier.

Bailey (lower-body) will return to the Islanders lineup on Thursday.

Bailey missed the last four games with a lower-body injury, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Bruins. The Islanders went 3-1-0 in four games without Bailey, but he will provide a huge boost to their top line. He returns to the lineup with 50 points (12G / 38A) in 42 games this season, ranking him 11th in the NHL.

Bailey (lower-body) will not be available on Saturday.

Bailey will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury but the Islanders have yet to give a firm timetable for his return. Head coach Doug Weight said they “have to figure everything out and hopefully [Bailey] is back sooner than later. That’ all I can tell you now.” The good news it that it doesn’t sound like Bailey will be out for an extended period of time, but it’s unfortunate not to have a firm grasp on how long he’ll be sidelined. Monitor his status heading into the Islanders back-to-back on Monday/Tuesday.

Bailey (hand) has returned to Isles’ practice on Monday.

Bailey has missed the last seven games with a broken hand that he suffered on October 23 vs. the Bruins. It is unlikely that Bailey will return to the lineup tomorrow, but this is a step in the right direction for Bailey. Monitor his status as the week progresses, he should travel to Florida on Wednesday.

Bailey (hand) will travel with the Islanders to Colorado.

Bailey was not on the ice for the Islanders morning skate and obviously won't play on Tuesday, but traveling with the team is another encouraging sign that he fractured hand is not as serious as it was originally believed to be. He will likely return to the ice at some point during the road-trip.

Bailey (hand) likely to travel with the Islanders on upcoming road-trip.

Islanders head coach Jack Capuano said that the news on Bailey was "better that we initially thought." He added that Bailey has a "good chance" to travel with the team despite dealing with a broken hand on Saturday. There is no timetable for when we can expect him to be back in the lineup, but this is better news than the original diagnosis.
