But nobody has been more frustrated with it]]> 5430479 Wed, 13 Feb 2019 17:35:01 EDT CSN Bay Area <![CDATA[Erik Karlsson (lower body) hasn't been ruled out yet for Thursday's]]> Erik Karlsson (lower body) hasn't been ruled out yet for Thursday's game against Washington.

Karlson, who skated on Wednesday at practice, will see how he feels before and after the team's morning skate before a decision is made. "I feel like it's time to push it forward a bit and test the waters a bit," Karlsson. "It's still day-to-day and it felt decently good out there and it's nice to be around the group again." He has missed the last eight games due to a lower-body injury.

<![CDATA[Practicing with team]]> Karlsson (lower body) joined his teammates on the ice for Wednesday's practice session, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Karlsson should be considered day-to-day at this point for Thursday's clash with Washington. Whenever the Swedish blueliner is reinserted into the lineup, it will likely mark the end of Radim Simek's time in the lineup, though Tim Heed could also be a candidate for the press box.

Kurz adds that Karlsson may or may not rejoin the team for Monday's game in Vancouver. As it stands, Karlsson hasn't suited up since Jan. 16 with the exception of the Jan. 26 All-Star Game. The productive blueliner missed the last three games prior to the All-Star break due to a lower-body injury, and has been unavailable post-break due to an illness.

Karlsson will miss his fifth straight game due to illness, but his day-to-day label leaves some hope that a return Thursday against the Flames may be in the cards. Although he hasn't found the back of the net at his usual rate, sporting a career-low 1.9 shooting percentage, the offensive powerhouse that is Karlsson has made up for it with 40 assists through 47 games.

Karlsson has already missed a game due to illness. Considering the nature of these types of ailments, he should be good to go Tuesday, though we won't know his status until closer to puck drop. Karlsson has enjoyed another solid season with 43 points but only has three goals. So far in 2018-19, the Swede is converting on just 1.9 percent of his shots.
