While recovering from a broken thumb, Joe Colborne's surgically-repaired wrist has been healing.

Colborne might have attempted to play through his wrist issues, but his thumb injury has forced him to take it easy. "It's way better than it was," Colborne said of his wrist. "Like I said when (the thumb injury) happened, that was the only silver lining, that gave more of a chance to get better. I'm shooting it way better than I was during training camp, so it's made some improvements." As previously reported, he took part in Monday's practice and is a game-time decision Tuesday.

Joe Colborne (thumb) practiced with his teammates for the first time this season.

The forward hurt his thumb in the preseason but it looks like he's nearing a return. He skated on a line with Markus Granlund and Josh Jooris during the practice session. "It felt real good out there today and I would love to get back in the lineup as quick as possible," said Colborne. "It’s hard watching the guys go out there. Just sitting in the locker room doing treatment, you feel like you’re letting down the team a bit. Obviously it’s part of the game, but I’m hoping to be back as soon as possible. It’s going to be up to the team doctors and coaches tomorrow." He will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Washington.

Joe Colborne is being listed as week-to-week with an injured thumb.

Colborne is hoping to avoid surgery. He had eight goals and 28 points in 64 contests in 2014-15. He does have a bit more offensive upside than those numbers imply, but the fact that he's now expected to miss the start of the campaign makes us less optimistic about him finishing in the 30-40 point range.

Joe Colborne left Thursday's game due to a right hand injury.

Colborne's wrist surgery was on his left side, so this new injury isn't related to that. The Flames didn't have any update on his status after the contest, other than to say that he'll be evaluated on Friday.

Joe Colborne took part in Thursday's preseason game.

Colborne's surgically-repaired wrist still isn't 100% though. He's anticipating that it will be an ongoing issue for at least the first half of the campaign, but it looks like he'll play through it. That might sound troubling, but Colborne also insisted, "It's to the point where we feel comfortable going out there and playing without having to worry about anything."

Joe Colborne will be wearing a brace on his wrist going the time being.

Colborne played through about half of the 2014-15 campaign with a wrist injury and had surgery over the summer. By the sounds of things he's still not 100%, although he believes his wrist will get better as the season progresses. "It's different from last year where I seemed to be going the other direction," he said.

It's not clear what his timetable is, but we wouldn't be surprised if he's fine by the time training camp starters. He was playing through the injury for most of the 2014-15 campaign. Colborne had eight goals and 28 points in 64 contests in 2014-15.

Joe Colborne was playing through a wrist injury for most of the 2014-15 campaign.

Colborne will see a specialist about it now that the season is over. We'll have to wait to see if he'll need surgery and what his timetable is, but it would be somewhat surprising if it turns out that this is a serious enough problem to keep him out for the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
