Dubinsky (concussion) will take part in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Lightning, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky cleared the league's concussion protocol after Game 3 and was expected to play Tuesday after receiving that evaluation. He should remain on the fourth line alongside Boone Jenner and Riley Nash after coach John Tortorella declared no lineup changes.

Dubinsky (concussion) successfully passed league protocol following Game 3 but will be re-evaluated Tuesday ahead of Game 4, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The forward declared himself "ready to rock" when speaking to the media Monday, a clear sign Dubinsky has little doubt he'll be good to go for what could be a series-clinching game for Columbus. He was forced to depart Sunday after being involved in a collision with Tampa defenseman, Braydon Coburn.

Columbus activated Dubinsky (lower body) off injured reserve Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky has missed the Blue Jackets' last seven games due to a lower-body injury, but he was a full participant at Monday's practice, which was the first indication that he was likely on the brink of rejoining the lineup. The 32-year-old is still a decent bottom-six option for Columbus at this stage in his career, but he's only notched 11 points in 37 appearances this campaign, so he's not a viable option in most fantasy formats.

Dubinsky (lower body) joined the team for practice Monday, but won't suit up against the Lightning, Craig Merz of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky will miss his seventh game as a result of his lower-body problem. The 32-year-old remains on injured reserve, but the fact that he is able to practice with the team is a good step in the right direction. Once given the all-clear Dubinsky will need to be activated off injured reserve, which could force Kole Sherwood or Eric Robinson back to the minors -- though if the center's activation comes after Monday's trade deadline, the team won't need to stay under the 23-man limit, which would allow it to keep both guys in the NHL.

Dubinsky (lower body) was designated for injured reserve Friday, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The news effectively rules Dubinsky out against the Blackhawks on Saturday, though he could technically still be activated in time to play if the team utilized retroactive IR. With the 32-year-old sidelined and Boone Jenner (undisclosed) also out versus Chicago, the Jackets recalled Cole Sherwood from the minors, who figures to slot into a fourth-line role.

Dubinsky (lower body) remains day-to-day and won't be in the lineup against the Islanders on Thursday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky will miss his fifth straight game due to injury and ninth in the club's last 14 outings. Prior to getting hurt, the center was struggling to produce offensively with just two points in his previous 19 outings. The 32-year-old has seen his minutes drastically reduced this year, as he is averaging a mere 12:43 of ice time compared to 15:21 and 17:54 in 2017-18 and 2016-17, respectively.

Dubinsky's chances of participation in Thursday's clash with the Islanders are unclear as he continues to deal with a lower-body injury, Jeff Svoboda of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach John Tortorella told Svoboda that he hasn't received a recent update on Dubinsky, who last played on Feb. 2. At this point, Dubinsky should be considered a game-time decision at best.

Dubinsky (lower body) will not be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Washington, Tom Reed of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky's absence will continue to linger, as he hasn't suited up in game action since Feb. 2. The extent of the injury is still unclear, but the 32-year-old did undergo an MRI at some point during the team's recent road trip. As long as Dubinsky is out, Riley Nash will continue to fill the void in his absence.

Dubinsky (lower body) has been ruled out for the remainder of the team's road trip and has returned to Columbus to undergo an MRI, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Portzline still believes Dubinsky is day-to-day, but the results of his upcoming MRI should shed more light on the pivot's situation. With Thursday and Saturday off of the table, Dubinsky's next opportunity to rejoin the lineup arrives Tuesday against the Capitals.

Dubinsky (undisclosed) was not among Columbus' lines in warmups, suggesting he'll sit out Tuesday in Colorado, Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky left Monday's practice session with an undisclosed injury, and it looks like he hasn't recovered enough to take part in this one. Lukas Sedlak will draw in as a result of Dubinsky's absence. Dubinsky's next chance to return comes Tuesday in Arizona.
