News: Crosby will miss Monday's tilt in Minnesota due to the death of his grandmother. Impact: Crosby practiced Monday and then left for the funeral in Nova Scotia. If he plays Thursday, then that will be his first and only preseason game. Crosby decided against summer wrist surgery and an undisclosed second injury -- possibly a shoulder ailment -- has kept him out of preseason action. There's an element of risk to owning Crosby in 2014-15 which hasn't been highlighted very much.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby (undisclosed) will play in the Penguins' preseason game Saturday, Josh Yohe of the Tribune-Review reports. Impact: Crosby surprised everyone by practicing earlier this week after reports emerged that he would miss a significant portion of the preseason. Now that he is ready to play in the preseason, the injury should not factor into any fantasy decisions.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Mike Johnston said Thursday that he hopes to have Crosby available for Saturday's preseason game against the Blue Jackets, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: Crosby was on the ice again for Thursday's practice, so it seems whatever ailment he was dealing with coming into camp has almost fully dissipated. Assuming he's able to participate in a few exhibitions before the start of the regular season, it's probably safe to mark Crosby down for another fantasy-friendly campaign.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby skated with his teammates Friday when the Pittsburgh Penguins opened training camp. The team had announced on Thursday that Crosby would be held out of the early days of training camp with an unspecified minor injury. Impact: The reigning NHL MVP said he was cleared to practice on Friday morning and wasted little time jumping onto the ice at Consol Energy Center. He skated for about 50 minutes before leaving. The 27-year-old declined to elaborate on how he was injured, saying only that it occurred a few days before camp began. (STATS, 12:05pm)

News: Crosby (undisclosed) practiced Friday, despite an early report that stated the MVP would be held out of the beginning of training camp, ABC News reports. Impact: Not only did Crosby practice, but he did not wear a red non-contact jersey, and participated in most of the practice. If Crosby is still battling an injury, it appears that it is not serious enough to keep him off the ice. If he is already healthy enough to participate in training camp, expect Crosby to be near 100 percent when the regular season rolls around, though we'll place the caveat that obviously something's been bugging him to some degree - such as a shoulder injury or minor soreness from his wrist issues last season. Or it could be some combo of both, that again, is not enough to keep him off the ice.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby will miss the beginning of training camp with an undisclosed injury, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Impact: Crosby played with an injured wrist toward the end of last season, and it's also possible he's suffering from another ailment, such as a shoulder injury. It appears he'll be able to open the regular season, but there's an added measure of risk with Crosby after he decided against summer wrist surgery and now has this additional mystery injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby will be held out of the early part of training camp after suffering an injury while preparing for camp. Impact: Evgeni Malkin is similarly being held out in the early going, so it's more than likely just the case where the organization wants to keep its two stars fresh for the start of the regular season. Crosby said last week that he was fully recovered from the wrist injury that bothered him during the postseason, so don't let this concern you too much.(RotoWire, )
