Zack Wheeler's absence from game action with a mild strain of his right oblique may only be about a week.
Terry Collins told ESPNNewYork.com on Thursday afternoon that Wheeler's injury is "not very bad."
The hope is to get Wheeler back on a bullpen mound in five days, with the top prospect pitching in a game again three days after that session.
