Marc Carig of Newsday reports that Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada will not play until Friday at the earliest, according to manager Terry Collins. Lucas Duda may need some time as well since he’s battling soreness.

Davis is dealing with a tight calf, Tejada has a tight hamstring and Duda has sore legs.

Also, Zack Wheeler could get the Opening Day start, although it depends largely on if Jon Niese will be ready to go.

“With our situation right now, hell, he may be the Opening Day starter,” Collins said.

Niese threw a bullpen session and remains on track to pitch in a “B” game against the Astros on Thursday after battling muscle fatigue in his left shoulder.
