Brad Treliving held a press conference at the ongoing general managers' meeting in Florida and released a new update on Mitch Marner's injury.

Brad Treliving Shares New Update on Mitch Marner at Press Conference During GM Meeting

Marner has been dealing with a high-ankle sprain for over a week now. Check out what Treliving said about his star's injury:
"In all likelihood, it is a minor injury, but we want to be respectful of it."

"We have some time now. Mitch has been off the ice for the last couple of days, but we will ramp him up this week and take it day by day to see how he is feeling. Hopefully, he will be back sooner rather than later."

This is pretty much mirroring what coach Keefe said yesterday. If you missed it, read more here:
"It hasn't been responding the way we had hoped," coach Sheldon Keefe said of Marner's injury and the team's medical staff. "So just stepping back a little bit."

"He's not going to be coming on the trip with us. We're just trying to get him to the point where he's comfortable throughout the week. So, he's day-to-day away from being day-to-day.

Regarding Mitch being out, it creates more opportunity for others to step up and to grow. For us, we can learn more about them," said Keefe. "And, at the same time for someone like Mitch specifically, who hasn't really had any time off, in the long run for him... as much as we miss him, I think it'll be beneficial for him when he does get back."

With less than a month before the start of the playoffs, there's still time for Marner to come back in time, and if management believes they should wait before sending him on the ice again, it's probably the best option for the Leafs.
More to come.
