Dave Bolland (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

As previously reported, he hasn't completely recovered from the sliced tendon that's cost him most of the season. Those lingering problems are what's putting his availability into question now.

Dave Bolland didn't skate Monday, but he still could be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay.

He hasn't returned to being 100 percent healthy from his sliced tendon on the outside of his left ankle because he aggravates the injury each game he has played. "He's not hurting himself," coach Randy Carlyle said. "It's just (with his) pain threshold he rolls his ankle and sometimes it takes up to 10 minutes to come back." Bolland played just 9:15 of ice time in Saturday's loss to Winnipeg.

Dave Bolland is getting limited ice time as he is not fully recovered from an ankle injury.

He played only 9:15 against the Jets Saturday night as he is still experiencing mobility issues stemming from an ankle injury that sidelined him for much of the season. If you are counting on a significant contribution from Bolland in the Maple Leafs' last three games, we would advise you to revise your thinking.

There hasn't any contract talks between Dave Bolland and the Maple Leafs since early February.

"Nothing is happening right now," said Bolland's agent, Anton Thun. "We exchanged proposals prior to the Olympics and we were significantly apart." Bolland's camp was reportedly asking for upward of $40 million over seven or eight years, which could lead to him testing the open market in the summer. He has eight goals and 12 points in 21 games this season. Bolland missed 56 matches when a tendon on the outside of his ankle was sliced.

Dave Bolland scored in Toronto's 3-2 win over Calgary on Tuesday.

It was his second goal in his last three games. Bolland has appeared in six matches since returning to the lineup from an ankle injury. He has been eased back into the fold, as he's surpassed 12 minutes of ice time just once during that span.
Apr 2 - 11:34 AM

Dave Bolland got back into the fold for Toronto after missing 56 games due to a sliced tendon on the outside of his ankle.

"That first shift was the hardest," Bolland said. "Getting my timing and figuring things out. You have to get used to it. My heartbeat was beating a bit too quick." He logged just 9:01 of ice time, while winning eight of nine faceoffs and recording three hits. Once he gets a few games under his belt, his ice time will go up and perhaps some of the production he displayed before getting hurt will return as well.
Mar 23 - 6:40 AM

Coach Randy Carlyle doesn't plan to ease Dave Bolland back into the lineup Saturday night, but he's also trying to temper expectations given the center's lengthy absence.

Carlyle said: "I don't want to put too much emphasis on him specifically because when a player hasn't played in 60 games it's a lot to ask of him – to come back in and be where he would have been coming out of training camp." Bolland hasn't played since Nov. 2 after a tendon on the outside of his left ankle was sliced by a skate. He's slated to play against Montreal between David Clarkson and Mason Raymond on the third line.
Mar 22 - 2:11 PM

Dave Bolland has been listed as probable for Saturday night's game against Montreal.

He hasn't played since November 2nd when he had his Achilles sliced by a skate blade. The Maple Leafs will welcome their third-line center back into the fold with open arms.
Mar 22 - 11:58 AM

Dave Bolland (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game.

Bolland hasn't played since Nov. 2. This injury effectively killed what started off as a promising season. He had six goals and 10 points in 15 games after being acquired from Chicago over the summer.
Mar 21 - 12:18 PM

Dave Bolland still has some work to do when it comes to strengthening his injured ankle.

"The whole ankle structure has a ways to go. It's all interconnected," said Bolland's agent, Anton Thun. "It's not a day-to-day type of thing. He's just not ready. There's two things that need to take place: one is the healing process, and then he needs to get his strength up again." It's unclear when he'll be able to return to action.
Mar 7 - 9:07 AM

Coach Randy Carlyle said Wednesday that Dave Bolland went to Carolina to see a specialist about his ankle tendon.

Carlyle said that Bolland was told to continue his rehab so it appears that a return to action for the feisty forward is still not close. Bolland is looking for a seven or eight year contract extension for $5 million a season and that would be a hard contract to offer with Bolland's current injury. He has played just 15 games this season and could be in play as far as a trade goes today.
Mar 5 - 12:29 PM

Dave Bolland will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, and with no progress made between him and the Leafs on a contract extension, GM Dave Nonis is "making calls" about trading the injured center.

According to Nick Kypreos, Bolland is asking for a seven or eight year extension worth in excess of $5 million per season. Toronto will want to trade Bolland before Wednesday's trade deadline if they do not foresee themselves resigning the forward. The two-time Stanley Cup champion has been limited to just 15 games with the Maple Leafs this season after severing his ankle tendon early in the year.
Mar 4 - 7:20 PM

Dave Bolland (ankle) took part in Friday's practice.

Bolland practiced on the third line, but he's still doubtful for Saturday's contest. At this point, Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said it's up to Bolland to say when he's ready and Bolland's termed himself as "day-to-day."
