Higgins Expected Back, but Health a Concern

Standard Spin: Vancouver's Chris Higgins will likely dress and play in Monday's game against the SJ Sharks, but the reality is that he is not out of the woods yet in regards to his current ailment.  Higgins is dealing with a staph infection that has now caused him to miss two mult-game stretches in December.  Even though Higgins should play against the Sharks, he could be sidelined again in the near future if his condition does not clear up.  This is a dicey situation for fantasy owners relying on Higgins.
