Wild’s Fernandez is hurt again, questionable for Thursday’s game

Fernandez was questionable for Thursday’s game at Colorado, team spokesman Aaron Sickman said Wednesday. Niklas Backstrom would replace Fernandez if he can’t play, and Josh Harding could be recalled from the minors.

Fernandez was initially hurt in Minnesota’s game on Jan. 20 against Dallas, and he returned to action one week later with the benefit of the all-star break.
