Konecny was shaken up after blocking a shot in the first period of Tuesday's game against Montreal, but he's taking part in line rushes during the pre-game warmup. [...]]]> 5145728 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 18:55:08 EDT <![CDATA[Knee injury still problematic]]> Konecny did not put much weight on his injured left foot during a "quick twirl" in Thursday morning's session, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports.

The burgeoning center was previously considered probable for the evening's home game against the Blue Jackets, but it's safe to assume that he's been downgraded in light of this latest development. Given the second-year skater's relatively high profile, we expect his situation to be clarified ahead of pregame warmups. Meanwhile, Konecny's fantasy owners should get reinforcements ready in case he gets scratched.

<![CDATA[Probable Thursday]]> Konecny (foot) is expected to play Thursday against Columbus, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The positive news comes despite the fact that Konecny skipped Wednesday's practice while nursing the injury, which he likely picked up in the course of Tuesday's win over Montreal. Expect Konecny to maintain his top-line role Thursday, where he has excelled while playing alongside Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier. In the 13 games since Jan. 23, Konecny has scored seven goals and 14 points while averaging nearly 18 minutes on ice per game; compare that to his first 47 contests of the season, in which he scored eight goals, 20 points, and saw 13-and-a-half minutes of ice per game.

<![CDATA[Flyers' Travis Konecny expected to play vs. Blue Jackets]]> Travis Konecny, who injured his right foot Tuesday, is listed as "probable" for Thursday's game against visiting Columbus, according to general manager Ron Hextall.]]> 5144924 Wed, 21 Feb 2018 13:55:01 EDT <![CDATA[Travis Konecny might have sustained a foot injury on Tuesday.]]> Travis Konecny might have sustained a foot injury on Tuesday. Konecny blocked a slapshot in the first period of that contest and while he got through the rest of the game, he did appear hurt. [...]]]> 5144896 Wed, 21 Feb 2018 13:10:21 EDT <![CDATA[Unable to practice]]> Konecny (foot) did not practice Wednesday, but a medical update is pending, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

We suspect that Konecny, who suffered the foot injury in Tuesday's home game against the Canadiens, will be monitored closely ahead of Thursday's clash with the Blue Jackets. This is an issue that his fantasy owners will want to keep close tabs on as well, given that Konecny is nearly averaging a point per game since the calendar flipped to 2018 -- including 11 goals and 10 assists.

<![CDATA[Endures foot injury]]> Konecny suffered a foot injury in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Montreal, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Konecny was able to play 14:43 before leaving with this malady, but he didn't record a point. This is just the sixth time in 24 games Konecny has failed to notch a point, and he has 11 goals, 24 points and a plus-12 rating in that span. If this injury is long term, it would be heartbreaking for the Flyers, who have won seven of eight games and are in prime playoff position. If no updates are available in the post-game presser, expect one after Wednesday's skate.

It's time to take note of Konecny's offensive surge and upgrade his fantasy status in all settings. After all, the sophomore has collected nine goals, eight assists, 44 shots, 15 PIM and a plus-8 rating through his past 18 contests. The heater aligns with a promotion to the No. 1 line alongside Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux, and Konecny's scoring pedigree reinforces the sustainability of his uptick in production.
