The latest update is basically a good news/bad news situation.
Wild GM Chuck Fletcher shared the “relatively good news” about Granlund to the Minnesota Star-Tribune’s Michael Russo: he has a lateral right ankle sprain that will sideline him between two weeks and a month.
(Again, that’s not great news, but Russo points out that a high-ankle sprain would be much worse.)
Russo also passed along Fletcher’s a far-less-positive update on Brodin: a broken clavicle will force him to miss at least eight weeks, with doctors still determining a “course of treatment” that may involve one of two options:
Doctors will either a) allow the bone to heal or b) surgically insert a plate.
Those are not exactly the most appealing choices, but at least Granlund seems primed for a reasonably quick comeback.
