Default Flyers catch a break with Lupul's sprained wrist

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -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.
