Terry Collins did not see any obstacles to Jonathon Niese starting on turn Friday against the Yankees at Citi Field. Niese had been removed from his most recent outing in Texas in the sixth inning after experiencing a rapid heartbeat.

Niese wore a heart monitor for 24 hours, through 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. Assistant GM John Ricco said the final test analysis had not been completed.

"He's going to be fine," Colins said.
