Flyers' Lupul has sprained wrist, should be OK for season

PHILADELPHIA -- Flyers forward Joffrey Lupul has a sprained
left wrist and was listed as day to day on Thursday, an improved
diagnosis after Philadelphia feared he broke his wrist.

"He had some medicine injected into that wrist this morning,
and we're hopeful that with three-to-five days of rest, he'll be
better," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.

Forwards Scottie Upshall and R.J Umberger also had surgery
Thursday. Umberger had screws inserted into the pinkie finger of
his left hand and Upshall had surgery on his left wrist.

Upshall could miss up to six weeks; Umberger could miss two
weeks.

Upshall and Umberger were both hurt in Philadelphia's 4-2 loss
against Ottawa on Tuesday night.
