Bertuzzi doesn’t skate, says he’s a game-time decision Saturday; Commodore out

DETROIT — Quick update from practice.

Todd Bertuzzi didn’t practice. He’s suffering from back/groin issues and his status for Saturday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks will be a game-time decision.

“I’ve just got to see in the morning how it’s feeling,” Bertuzzi said. “I’m hoping to (play) I just needed some time to fix a few things. I’ll come here prepared to play and then see how it is in warm-ups.”

Bertuzzi took the pre-game skate Thursday prior to the Wings’ game against the Phoenix Coyotes, but was scratched after.

“My back gets a little bit tight and sore and then if affects my groin a bit,” Bertuzzi said. “I’m just trying to be cautious a bit. I don’t need to be out for a lengthy period of time over something like that.”

Mike Commodore (ankle) said he’s not playing Saturday. The earliest he feels he can go is Monday at home against the Buffalo Sabres.
