WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Jeurys Familia is headed to New York to be examined by team doctors.

Familia landed on the disabled list May 12 with what has been labeled biceps tendinitis. He made a pair of rehab appearances with Class A St. Lucie before the issue resurfaced. Terry Collins recently had expressed hope Familia would be back on a mound this past weekend after letting the issue calm.

Familia told ESPNNewYork.com at Palm Beach International Airport on Tuesday morning that he is not in pain -- just that he cannot fully extend his arm during his delivery.
