With three players already sidelined for the season with knee injuries and one awaiting the results of an MRI, Calgary Roughnecks captain Tracey Kelusky is the latest addition to the Riggers' ever-expanding MASH unit.

The National Lacrosse League all-star forward is on anti-inflammatories after waking up Wednesday morning with a badly swollen knee.

Kelusky may not be able to play in tomorrow night's Champion's Cup rematch against the Buffalo Bandits at the 'Dome (7:30 p.m., Ch. 27) due to the swelling.

Kelusky said he had no problem with the knee following Sunday's win over Arizona and doctors think it may be some type of infection.

"I'm not sure what happened," said Kelusky yesterday, frustrated by the situation. "It was fine Monday when I got up and Tuesday and then I got up (Wednesday) and it was swollen twice the size of my other knee. I could barely walk."

Kelusky went to the doctors, however he said they're still unsure exactly what is wrong with him but suspect some type of infection.

Meanwhile, rookie defender Ryan McNish, who hurt his knee Friday against Toronto, had an MRI done yesterday in Edmonton and will get the results Monday.

Forward Matt Green and defenders Andy Ogilvie and Devan Wray are already on the injured reserve list due to knee injuries.

BUCK UP: The Roughnecks were fined an undisclosed amount yesterday by the league for comments made by coach Chris Hall and players Brad MacDonald and Curtis Palidwor critical of the officiating following Calgary's 16-10 loss to the Toronto Rock Friday night, confirmed team president Brad Banister.
