Terry Collins is hopeful both Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Daniel Murphy can play by the end of next week, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Nieuwenhuis left a game last weekend after bruising his knee - he has not played since and is 1-for-18 this spring.

Murphy strained his intercostal muscle in mid-February - he has not yet played in a Grapefruit League game this spring.
