Latendresse Returns to Practice
Standard Spin: There's still no timetable for a return, but Guillaume Latendresse returned to practice Monday for the Wild and declared himself free of concussion symptoms. Expect it to be at least a few more weeks before he's back in live action though.
When he does return, he could be a decent pickup for fantasy owners. He's more valuable in a points-only league than a roto-format, but he's got pretty good offensive skills and was definitely on the rise coming into the year. The reward may not justify the risk though, as Latendresse already attempted one comeback from this concussion, and that only lasted two games before he was back on the shelf. (1/31/12)
