Mike Green Placed on Long-term IR

Standard Spin: It's been a train wreck of a season for Mike Green, and the news just keeps getting worse.  According to CSNWashington.com, the Caps placed Green on long-term IR Thursday, meaning he's ineligible to return until Feb. 1.  This is a clear signal that Green has suffered a major setback with his groin injury that already cost him 25 games this season, and it's an ominous sign for his fantasy outlook.  We can't proclaim Green won't return late in the year and start putting up points, but it's looking more and more like the entire season could be a wash.  (Jan.13)
