Sidelined in Boston on Thursday, Kris Versteeg visited a doctor Friday for a back problem that’s troubled him the last few days. Following a light practice Friday afternoon, Ron Wilson indicated the possibility of an MRI for the 24-year-old Versteeg.
“He’s had issues with his back,” said Wilson. “It gets sore every once in a while and he needs to rest it.”
“He’s gone to see the doctor, maybe along the way get an MRI, I’m not really sure.”
Versteeg was a late scratch for the Leafs 2-0 loss in Boston Thursday night, after missing practice a day earlier with stiffness in his back. In his last two seasons with Chicago, Versteeg was the picture of health, missing just six games due to injury.
“You always are concerned,” said Wilson, “but I’m not gonna speculate [on the severity] right now. I have no idea.”
