David Krejci (back) may return to the lineup Thursday night against Los Angeles.

"Doing much better," said coach Bruce Cassidy on Wednesday. "It looks like [Thursday] will be a good target date for him. It'll be a game-time decision." Krejci has been sidelined since Oct. 19 with what is believed to be a back issue.

David Krejci (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game.

Nov 15 - 2:58 PM

David Krejci (back) will be a game-time decision Wednesday night.

Krejci took some contact and made it through the entire on-ice session on Tuesday. He rotated with Jordan Swarz during line rushes, so he's projected to play between Danton Heinen and Frank Vatrano if he is ready to return. His status may become clearer after the morning skate.

David Krejci (back) felt fine after Monday's practice.

Krejci may sit again Wednesday with a more likely return date coming Saturday in San Jose. We should know more about a potential return date shortly. He is anxious to get back in after being limited to six contests in 2017-18. "It's frustrating," Krejci said. "Especially early on in the season. You have all summer. You work so hard. Then you only go six games and you're pretty much back where you started. But I'm feeling better now. I put all those negative thoughts behind me a long time ago. I'm just ready to be back with the guys, take the trip, enjoy the flight, get ready for tomorrow."

David Krejci (back) expects to play during Boston's upcoming three-game road trip.

Nov 13 - 12:17 PM

David Krejci (back) could be available to join the Bruins on their West Coast road trip this week.

However, that is a best-case scenario. Krejci has been sidelined since Oct. 19 because of a back injury and it's unclear when he'll be ready to play again.
Nov 13 - 9:37 AM

David Krejci (back) was on the ice for 10-15 minutes on Tuesday.

That might not be a lot, but it's a step forward as he hadn't been seen skating since Oct. 23. Before being sidelined he had gotten off to a strong start this season with a goal and six points in six games.
Nov 7 - 12:10 PM

David Krejci (back) has been moved to injured reserve.

Nov 6 - 3:13 PM

David Krejci (back) has been ruled out for this week's action.

Boston plays four times this week, including Monday's home match against Minnesota. Krejci hasn't been in the lineup since Oct. 19 because of a troublesome back injury. Coach Bruce Cassidy said that the Bruins center will be reassessed before the team's West Coast trip, which begins on Nov. 15.
Nov 6 - 12:03 PM

David Krejci's back problem is still bad enough that he can't skate.

Krejci will miss his sixth straight game on Saturday. Consider him day-to-day, but if his back is so bad that he can't skate yet then it doesn't seem likely that he'll be able to play in the near future.
Nov 3 - 2:46 PM

David Krejci (back) won't make his return on Thursday.

There's a chance that Krejci will play on Saturday, but it sounds like he's doubtful for that contest. He last played on Oct. 19.
Nov 1 - 3:01 PM

David Krejci (back) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Columbus.

Krejci hasn't played since Oct. 19 because of a back injury, which has gone from day-to-day to "week-to-week," according to coach Bruce Cassidy. It's unclear at this time when he will be ready to return.
Oct 29 - 5:19 PM

David Krejci (back) is doubtful for Monday's game against Columbus.

Krejci had already been ruled out for Saturday's contest. He didn't participate in Friday's practice, so that's presumably part of the reason his return isn't seen as imminent.
