Dickerson, who landed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, has no plans of undergoing surgery to address the plantar fasciitis in his left foot, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson has been playing with inflammation on his heel since spring training and saw the situation worsen when he chased down a fly ball Saturday against the Dodgers. The Rockies are hopeful that some time out of the field for Dickerson will be enough to make playing through the issue manageable again, with manager Walt Weiss suggesting the outfielder could return from the DL when eligible June 3. Dickerson will wear a walking boot for the next few days before attempting to restart baseball activities.

Dickerson (foot) was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson's plantar fasciitis flared up again over the weekend, and he will need at least a couple weeks to let the discomfort subside. The 25-year-old recently suggested a DL stint was possible but said he wasn't sure if time off would really help, saying "to heal it, it will take a lot of time, or tearing (the tissue in the foot), to get better." Rafael Ynoa will get the start in left field Tuesday with Ben Paulsen recalled to replace Dickerson on the active roster.

Dickerson (foot) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies.

The Rockies will again go with Charlie Blackmon in left field with Drew Stubbs in center. Dickerson continues to battle plantar fasciitis, and it's possible he could end up on the 15-day DL later in the week if his condition doesn't improve. Dickerson said Sunday night that he's unsure whether time off will help the injury, and manager Walt Weiss indicated that the team will likely wait a few days before coming to a decision.

Dickerson (foot) may be placed on the 15-day disabled list, but he's not sure if the time off would help his plantar fasciitis, the Denver Post reports. "I don't know if that time would help," he said. "To heal it, it will take a lot of time, or tearing (the tissue in his foot), to get better. So I don't know."

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said the team will likely wait a few days before making a decision, and it's possible Dickerson could get some at-bats in the meantime. Whether or not the outfielder ends up taking a few weeks off, he'll likely be bothered by his foot intermittently throughout the season. The injury most recently flared up during Saturday's game against the Dodgers, preventing Dickerson from playing in Sunday's contest. The Rockies start a four-game series against the Phillies on Monday.

Dickerson (foot) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson will get the day off, while Charlie Blackmon moves over to left field and Drew Stubbs takes over in center. He exited Saturday's game in the third inning after his plantar fasciitis flared up while attempting to chase down a fly ball. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, this condition will likely linger for the majority of the season, so those who play in daily formats will likely need to monitor Dickerson's progress closely.

Dickerson left Saturday's win over the Dodgers in the third inning after his again, the results from chasing a fly ball.

This is really bad news for a player who has been bothered on and off by the injury the last few weeks. Drew Stubbs replaced him in the game.

Dickerson (foot) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, according to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post.

Dickerson has been slowed of late by the lingering plantar fasciitis in his left foot, but he will be able to take the field Saturday. Dickerson will man left field and bat fifth against Dodgers starter Zack Greinke.

Dickerson (plantar fasciitis) is out of the lineup Friday, SB Nation's Eric Stephen reports.

The team did not announce that he was sitting because of the plantar fasciitis he is dealing with, but that can be assumed. Dickerson said the injury hurts whenever he runs but on Thursday he said he could play through it, although that won't be the case Friday. Consider him questionable for the rest of this weekend series against the Dodgers.

Dickerson said Wednesday that he's still feeling the effects of plantar fasciitis in his left foot, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. "It hurts every time I run," Dickerson said. "But it's not enough to keep me from playing. I think I can still make plays and hit."

Dickerson's positive outlook seems to be backed up by his batting line, which he improved to an excellent .317/.355/.548 after singling twice in Wednesday's loss to the Angels. Unsurprisingly, however, Dickerson seems to have abandoned the idea of being aggressive on the bases, as he's tried just one steal this season after going 8-for-15 on his attempts in 2014. While last season's paltry success rate probably didn't have many fantasy owners counting on Dickerson for more than moderate production in that category, he likely can't be relied upon as even a token threat on the bases while he nurses the injury. The soon-to-be 26-year-old acknowledged that the plantar fasciitis is something he'll probably have to manage all season.

Dickerson is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

Rockies' manager Walt Weiss will roll with a right-handed heavy lineup against Sunday starter Clayton Kershaw, and that includes sitting Dickerson, Carlos Gonzalez and Justin Morneau. Dickerson should be back in action Tuesday against the Angels.
