News: Gionta (lower back) is slated to play Thursday against the Lightning.
Impact: Gionta, who returns after missing three games with a lower-body injury, is only an option in deeper formats, however, with 12 points and 12 PIM in 59 games to date.

News: Gionta (lower back) won't play Tuesday against the Rangers, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Impact: Gionta expects to travel with New Jersey to Florida where the team plays Tampa Bay on Thursday and the Panthers on Saturday, but such an outcome has yet to be confirmed. In any case, Gionta, who last suited up March 31, is only an option in super-deep formats, with 12 points and 12 PIM through 59 games this season.

News: Gionta (lower back) hopes to return to action Tuesday against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Impact: Gionta, who has missed the last two games with muscle spasms in his lower back, was able to practice Monday, so he's a candidate to suit up Tuesday, that is, if his back responds well to Monday's activities. "We'll see how I feel in the morning," Gionta said Monday. "First time I had contact, so we'll take it from there."
