"Right now, it's day-to-day so that's good news," Rielly said Wednesday. "Whenever you go down awkwardly and you don't really know what happened you get a bit concerned. The way it looks [on replay] is the way it felt. I'm happy that I'm walking around and everything and I'm feeling better than I was yesterday." He won't play on Thursday night with what is believed to be an ankle issue. Rielly is day-to-day with no set timetable for now.
