Michal Rozsival (lower body) is out on Monday.

Rozsival was initially projected to be a game-time decision, but it looks like we're getting our answer early. Look for Tim Erixon to stay in the lineup as a result.

Michal Rozsival (lower body) will be a "game day" decision Monday.

He missed Saturday's game against Colorado because of a lower-body injury. Rozsival has four points, 43 hits and a plus-6 rating in 26 games.

Michal Rozsival won't suit up with the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday and might not be able to play on Monday, either.

The veteran blueliner isn't much of a difference-maker in fantasy, so JFYI here.

With Michal Rozsival returning to the lineup, it looks like the Chicago Blackhawks will scratch David Rundblad instead of Trevor van Riemsdyk.

"TVR" has been averaging about three more minutes of ice time per game than Rundblad, so it's not a huge shock. Rozsival makes a difference in reality, but doesn't really get the prominent opportunities (PP or otherwise) to be a huge factor in fantasy.

Michal Rozsival (upper body) will be in the lineup for the Blackhawks on Saturday.

Michal Rozsival (upper body) won't make his season debut on Wednesday.

There was some speculation that Rozsival might be ready in time, but now the Blackhawks are targeting Saturday for his return. He doesn't do enough offensively to warrant owning in standard leagues.

Michal Rozsival (upper body) might play on Wednesday.

Rozsival has missed Chicago's first two games due to the ailment, but returned to practice on Monday. He had a goal and eight points in 42 contests last season.

Mciahl Rosziavl skated on his own after the Blackhawks' practice Friday.

The veteran defenseman continues his recovery from an upper-body injury that he sustained about 10 days ago. With any luck, he will be available to play by the end of next week. Considering Rozsival has not fantasy value whatsoever, we do not expect this news will change your roster plans.

Michal Rozsival (upper body) is expected to miss the Blackhawks' first game or two.

The good news is that Rozsival shouldn't be unavailable for much longer than that. He had a goal and eight points in 42 contests in 2013-14.

Michal Rozsival recorded an assist in a 4-3 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday.

Rozsival has a goal and five points in 13 postseason contests. He also has a minus-one rating so far in the playoffs and one of just five Chicago players to have a negative rating after playing in at least 10 contests.

The Chicago Blackhawks will see a slight lineup tweak as Michal Rozsival replaces Sheldon Brookbank on defense.

The Los Angeles Kings are likely to push Chicago as much as anyone can starting with Game 1 on Sunday, so it makes sense that the 'Hawks are making changes even coming off a victory. Rozsival was a healthy scratch in the Blackhawks' previous two playoff games. Having him back in the fold shouldn't have big fantasy implications, though.
