The plan is for Roberto Luongo (lower body) to start on Saturday, per Panthers coach Bob Boughner.

It would be Luongo's first start since Dec. 4. He's already been taken off the injured reserve list and served as the Panthers' backup goaltender on Wednesday, so it would be surprising if there are any last minute changes to the Panthers' plans.

Roberto Luongo (lower body) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

It's possible that Roberto Luongo (lower body) will return to the fold on Wednesday.

Roberto Luongo (lower body) took part in Saturday's practice.

Luongo also skated with the Panthers on Thursday and appears very close to returning. He might start in Wednesday's game against his former team, the Vancouver Canucks, but Luongo guarded against making any commitments. "I don’t have a target in mind," Luongo said. "I’d love to play as soon as possible, but at the same time, I got to make sure that I’m ready and that I’m going to be helping the team."

Roberto Luongo (lower body) practiced on Thursday for the first time since he was injured on Dec. 4.

Luongo has actually been skating for well over a month, but he had been held out of practices until now. He's getting close to returning and might even be able to start on Wednesday when the Panthers face his former team, the Vancouver Canucks. For his part, Luongo said he'd like to play at some point during the Panthers' upcoming five-game road trip, but he doesn't have a firm timetable. If nothing else, it sounds like it's reasonable at this point to look at him as being day-to-day instead of week-to-week.
Feb 8 - 5:37 PM

Roberto Luongo (lower body) took to the ice after practice on Monday.

Feb 6 - 10:22 AM

Roberto Luongo (lower body) is getting closer to a return, according to coach Bob Boughner.

Jan 29 - 4:07 PM

Roberto Luongo (lower body) has "turned a corner" in his recovery, according to Panthers coach Bob Boughner.

Jan 18 - 5:37 PM

Roberto Luongo (lower body) may be ready to return in early February.

Coach Bob Boughner said that isn't a definitive timetable, but that is when he hopes to have Luongo available to play. He wants to make sure the Panthers get the veteran netminder back at 100 percent. Luongo has been out of action since Dec. 4 because of a lower-body injury.
Jan 8 - 11:22 AM

Roberto Luongo (lower body) got back on the ice Thursday morning for the first time he was injured on Dec. 4.

Luongo did some work with goalie coach Robb Tallas. "He's obviously got a long way to go, but there's definitely been some great progression," coach Bob Boughner said. "It's nice to see him get the equipment back on." The Panthers bench boss added that a mid-January return for Luongo is unlikely to happen, but he has recovered faster than expected before.

Roberto Luongo's lower-body injury is expected to keep him sidelined for "an extended period of time," according to coach Bob Boughner.

"Whether that's three weeks, four weeks, five weeks, we're going to see how his rehab goes, that kind of thing," Boughner said. "Definitely out for a while." The good news is that Luongo's hip, which he had surgery on two summers ago, isn't the issue. According to multiple reports it could be a groin injury. He has been placed on injured reserve. James Reimer will fill in as the Panthers' number one goalie in Luongo's place.

Roberto Luongo's lower-body injury isn't related to his hip.

Luongo underwent hip surgery prior to the 2016-17 campaign, so it's good to no his present problem isn't a resurgence of that issue. That being said, he will be sidelined for weeks, according to Panthers coach Bob Boughner.

Roberto Luongo was "hobbling a bit" after Monday's contest, according to coach Bob Boughner, but he didn't know if it would be a long-term injury.
