General manager Jim Nill said the Stars won't know when or if Bishop (knee) will be ready to play, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

Nill's comments cast a dark cloud over the hope for Bishop to be ready by the start of the season. He's still recovering from surgery on his right knee that kept him out for all of last season. As it stands, the Stars won't need to rush the 34-year-old back after signing Braden Holtby on Wednesday to join Anton Khudobin and Jake Oettinger as the team's options in goal. More information on Bishop should be available when the Stars open training camp in September.
