Andrew MacDonald (lower body) took part in Monday's practice.

Unfortunately MacDonald won't be available on Tuesday and he doesn't think he'll be able to return on Wednesday either. That's unfortunate for the Flyers given that they're also now missing defenseman Radko Gudas, who received a 10-game suspension. The situation might lead to Mark Alt playing on Tuesday.

The Philadelphia Flyers hope that Andrew MacDonald (lower body) is ready to go Tuesday.

MacDonald was injured almost a month ago. He is participating in practice and with Radko Gudas facing possibly a long suspension, the Flyers need MacDonald back and help steady the blueline. MacDonald has only one goal in eight games this season but the Flyers need help defensively and his return would help that cause.

MacDonald is getting close to returning, but he's still doubtful for Thursday's contest. "I’m not sure if that’s realistic or not, just being off for the amount of time I was off," MacDonald said. "It did feel really good, but we just have to go through the process of seeing how it feels tomorrow and go from there, make sure there’s no setbacks or anything." He last played on Oct. 21.
