Ryan Murray (knee) might be back shortly after the All-Star break.

Murray has been limited to just four games this season and his last game was on Nov. 1. With that in mind, we wonder if he'll go on a conditioning stint before returning to the Blue Jackets' lineup. He's got plenty of potential, but we wouldn't bet on him having much fantasy value for the rest of the season.

Despite taking contact on Monday, Ryan Murray (knee) isn't close to returning.

Murray is focused on building strength in the muscles around his injured knee for now. "We want to try to progress this thing without getting too far ahead of ourselves, not jumping ahead and then having to regress," coach Todd Richards said. "And that still could happen. But we've sat down and tried to map out a plan." Murray hasn't played since Nov. 1 and has been limited to just four games this season.

There's still no timetable for Ryan Murray's (knee) return.

Murray might not be available for quite a while despite the fact that he's already missed months due to the injury. He was asked recently if he was afraid that this injury would plague him for his entire career. "I hope not," Murray said. "I don't think so. I feel like it’s going to get better. It's just taking more time than anybody wants it to take." Murray was taken with the second overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Ryan Murray (knee) partook in an optional skate on Friday for the first time in weeks.

Murray underwent off-season surgery on his knee and while he returned to the lineup in late October, he came back too soon and has been off the ice since early November. The second overall pick in the 2012 Draft has plenty of talent and is worth selecting in keeper leagues. There is no timetable for his return but at least he is back skating.

Ryan Murray (knee) is still not skating as he recovers from two off-season knee surgeries.
