Gionta (lower back) is slated to play Thursday against the Lightning.

Gionta, who returns after missing three games with a lower-body injury, is only an option in deeper formats, however, with 12 points and 12 PIM in 59 games to date.

Gionta (lower back) won't play Tuesday against the Rangers, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Gionta expects to travel with New Jersey to Florida where the team plays Tampa Bay on Thursday and the Panthers on Saturday, but such an outcome has yet to be confirmed. In any case, Gionta, who last suited up on Match 31, is only an option in deeper formats, with 12 points and 12 PIM through 59 games this season.

Gionta (lower back) hopes to return to action Tuesday against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Gionta, who has missed the last two games with muscle spasms in his lower back, was able to practice Monday, so he's a candidate to suit up Tuesday, that is, if his back responds well to Monday's activities. "We'll see how I feel in the morning," Gionta said Monday. "First time I had contact, so we'll take it from there."

Gionta (lower back) will not play Saturday against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

The Devils were never seriously expecting Gionta to suit up over the weekend, but his injury at least seems to remain in the day-to-day category for now. The forward was able to skate on his own earlier Saturday and indicated that he felt strong afterward. He may be a candidate to play Tuesday, when the Rangers and Devils will have a rematch in New Jersey.

Gionta will miss Friday's game against Montreal with a lower-back injury, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Given that Gionta hasn't skated since sustaining the injury on Tuesday, he looks iffy, at best, for Saturday's game against the Rangers. Per the report, Gionta's absence could pave the way for Reid Boucher to return to the team's forward mix Friday.

Gionta missed Wednesday's practice due to a lower-back injury, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Gionta sustained the injury in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jackets. The Devils will wait and see if he can get back on the ice Thursday before making a decision on the forward's status for their weekend back-to-back set.

Gionta picked up a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

Gionta has actually been getting on the scoresheet somewhat regularly since missing nearly two months, collecting four points in his last four contests. Even after that stretch though, the 31-year-old has just 11 points in 48 games, so there isn't much value from a fantasy perspective.
