Niese may push back his post-start cardio and side sessions to help his recovery, Kerwick reports.
Niese left last night's game against the Dodgers after getting hit on the right leg by a come backer by Mark Ellis in the top of the third inning. X-rays taken on Niese's leg were negative. He is listed as day-to-day.
Terry Collins later said he expects Niese to make his next start, though he will continue to reserve judgment until he sees his pitcher back on a mound.
