Johnson (lower-body) won’t play on Monday but traveled on the two-game road trip.

Johnson will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury that he suffered last Thursday vs. the Wild. He traveled with the team which suggests he shouldn’t be sidelined longterm, but there’s nothing to suggest that he will play on the trip.

Johnson left Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Johnson left last night’s game following a hit from Wild forward Nino Niederreiter. His injury could leave a big hole in fantasy lineups as he has been hot for the better part of two months—Johnson has collected six goals and 12 assists (18 points) in his last 17 games. The Lightning get back in action on Saturday, so expect an update on Johnson’s status in the next 24 hours.

Johnson (undisclosed) will not play Friday; not expected to play Saturday either.

Johnson suffered an injury on Tuesday and will likely miss both games this weekend. Luckily for the Lightning they are expected to get Ondrej Palat and Alex Killorn back in the lineup to replace Johnson. Monitor his status heading into next week.

Johnson (upper-body) will be a game-time decision for Game 1.

Johnson took part in the Lightning’s optional morning skate this morning, but remains a game-time decision for Game 1 vs. the Red Wings. The Lightning vs. Red Wings get underway at 7:00 p.m., so monitor his status when they hit the ice for warmups at 6:30 p.m. Johnson torched the Red Wings last season, scoring six goals with one assist (seven points) in seven games. He finished the playoffs with 23 points (13G / 10A).

Johnson (upper-body) practiced on Tuesday but remains questionable for Game 1.

Johnson centred the Lightning’s top line in Tuesday’s practice and appears to be on track to play in Game 1 vs. the Red Wings. Johnson is expected to take part in Wednesday’s morning skate before he makes a decision whether or not he can play in the series opener.

Johnson (undisclosed) is questionable for Monday’s game; will be a game-time decision.

Johnson has missed the last seven games with an undisclosed injury and he skated on the second line in Sunday’s practice which suggested he might return tonight. However, he remains iffy and you will need to monitor his status during pre-game warmups.

Johnson (undisclosed) failed to record a point in 17:40 TOI in his return to the lineup on Sunday.

Johnson missed three games with an undisclosed injury, but returned to the lineup on Sunday. Johnson didn’t record a point, but played a healthy 17:40. Johnson and the Lightning had a lot of hype surrounding them entering the season, but Johnson has just 11 points (4G / 7A) in 22 games this year. He would make for an interesting buy-low option right now.
