Getzlaf (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Lightning, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Getzlaf has been held out of the last two games with the injury, which he sustained during pregame warmups Thursday. He was able to skate Saturday, which provides some level of optimism that he might be available for the team's next game. It's worth tracking his status throughout Sunday's warmups, as a decision on his availability could come down to the wire.

Getzlaf (lower body) will miss Friday's game against the Capitals, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Getzlaf had a resurfacing of a previous lower-body injury during warmups Thursday, and it will cause him to miss at least two games. The Ducks recalled Bill Karlsson from AHL Norfolk on Friday likely as insurance, which could indicate the captain's injury could sideline him longer than just these two contests.

Getzlaf (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Capitals, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Getzlaf was a late scratch for Thursday's game against the Predators, after he tweaked a lower-body injury during warmups. He's considered day-to-day, and with the Ducks not having a morning skate, Getzlaf's status may not be known until shortly before the opening faceoff.

Getzlaf, who tweaked a lower-body injury during warmups Thursday and ended up sitting out a 5-2 win over the Predators, is uncertain to play Friday against the Capitals, NHL.com's Robby Stanley reports. "It's day-to-day, and we'll probably know more before we hit Tampa [Bay on Feb. 8] anyway," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I don't even know if he can play [Friday], but he's coming to Washington with us."

Boudreau's words cast significant doubt on Getzlaf's availability for Friday's, but with the Ducks not holding a gameday skate, the forward's status likely won't be officially announced until pregame warmups. On a more fortunate note, the fact that the team is listing Getzlaf as day-to-day suggests a long-term absence is not in the offing, though that could change if his condition fails to improve much over the next few days. Rickard Rakell assumed Getzlaf's spot on the top line Thursday and would likely continue to do so if Getzlaf is out again Friday.
