Granlund (wrist) participated in practice Sunday, Rachel Blount of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

His presence at practice Sunday is a step in the right direction for Granlund -- who last suited up on Dec. 27 -- but it remains to be seen whether he will see action in either of the Wild's two games in advance of the NHL All Star break.

Granlund will be evaluated by a doctor Saturday to see if he can be cleared to begin practicing Sunday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

If Granlund is able to begin practicing with the team on Sunday, he may be able to play in one, and perhaps even two games before the NHL All-Star break. If Granlund is cleared to practice Sunday, he'd likely be a long-shot to suit up Monday against Columbus. However, he may have a chance of returning to action Tuesday when the Wild take on the Red Wings in their last game before the break.

Granlund (wrist) may resume practicing with the Wild on Sunday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It remains how much contact (if any) Granlund will be able to take upon skating with the team, but in any case, it doesn't sound like the Wild are closing the door on him returning before the All-Star break. Team doctors have to wait and see how he makes it through Sunday's session before determining whether he'll realistically be an option for either of the Wild's final two games before the break, scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday.
