Dr. Terry Murray with the latest updates from the infirmary

Besides the fact that many guys IN the line-up haven’t been producing at their normal levels, the Kings also have several players OUT of the line-up lately.

Following practice today, coach Murray provided updates on the four players who all seem to be just days away from returning…

On Justin Williams (hand injury suffered last night) – “It’s more of a therapy day, rehab day…it is (related to being hit on the hand last night in Anaheim)…I do expect it [him to be in the line up tomorrow]. I don’t know that for absolute. He’ll get treatment today, come in tomorrow and give us a feel as to how he’s doing.

On Mike Richards (on IR following hit last Thursday) – “Progressing. That’s all I can say. That’s all I know, actually. He’s in every day, riding the bike, getting more acclimated, getting exercise and a feel for his own self…usually the players see doctors on game night. So, I’m sure they’ll have another conversation tomorrow.”

On Willie Mitchell (sore groin suffered last Thursday) – “Full practice, looks really good, skated and participated in all the drills, looked comfortable. I’ll have a conversation with him here after, to see where he’s at for tomorrow…I think after Willie goes through the practice here today, it’s going to be more important to see how he is in the morning, rather than this afternoon. We’ll make a decision after the morning skate.”

On Alec Martinez (on IR following Minnesota game on 11/12) – “Pretty close to getting going. He’s been out there the last few days in practice, doing everything and feeling pretty comfortable. So, it’s just a matter of getting everybody in here tomorrow and seeing how they’re doing.”

Asked if there was a possibility both Mitchell and Martinez would be in the line-up tomorrow, Murray said, “I don’t think so. One of the two, it’s a good possibility.”

Last hour, Murray talked at length about the Kings’ lack of scoring (link).
