Well with Quick being cleared to play and praticing in LA now, it would appear this is exactly what it is going on. Berube called up to get reps in with the AHL team just in case Jones can't play Friday.

If he's not cleared though, wouldn't LA be paying his full salary, like other injured players? It's nice to be able to give him practice time and access to team doctors, but that would have cost them roughly $900,000 to do so.
Not sure about the $900,000 you are talking about but the Kings were paying his full salary during the lockout since he was injured. But as CT said, Quick was practicing with Manchester to get reps in with the team. The Kings assigned him on a "conditioning stint" so he was allowed to practice but not play any games. They were allowed to do this basically since there was no way for him to get back to 100% from his injury in LA because of the lack of any structured practice during the lockout.
