Rob Scuderi, still out with his “lower-body injury” — although, based on the quotes below, we now we know it’s a lower-body injury he’s never had before — skated for about 20 minutes this morning, in workout gear, before the Kings practiced. Scuderi tested his legs with a variety of little drills, and didn’t appear to be in any discomfort. After practice, Terry Murray said he wasn’t sure whether Scuderi would be able to practice with the team in the next couple days. Here’s what Scuderi said after he skated…
Question: How did it feel out there today?
SCUDERI: “It was OK. The first time back is always a little different, especially when I have an injury I’ve never had before. It didn’t feel that bad.”
Question: Is it still too soon to decide on Wednesday?
SCUDERI: “I think it’s still too soon. It’s going to be up to the trainers and myself to see how I feel. I’m certainly hoping. It’s not fun to be out of the lineup and watch your team, so I’m hoping for Wednesday.”
Question: Are you going to try to get back out tomorrow?
SCUDERI: “Yeah. I’m not sure what the schedule is for everyone else, but I know I’m definitely going to skate and see how it feels. I think, after that, I would like to try to practice with the team. At least give it a try.”
