If I were a betting man, I'd wager that Green is good to go for the playoffs, but not a minute before then.
The Caps haven't had a must-win game in a long time. They've been resting guys up as much as possible at every opportunity. Wideman sounds like he's out for the season. Poti... well, we have no idea. Yet it looks like Green and Erskine are healing up and figure to be as close to tip top for the playoffs as possible, though.
The Caps don't talk about injuries, but there's a different vibe for each of the guys who is out. Wideman is so out they aren't even hiding anything. Poti? Total mystery. I'd guess he's a later-round possibility at best, but realistic enough that they are under media lockdown. They are making it look like the other two could play today in an emergency situation, but there is no strong need to rush anyone. We don't actually know anything, but my guess is that Green is a lot closer than they let on.
