Spaceflight Now is reporting that NASA plans to ask Orbital Sciences to reschedule its second resupply run to the space station for some time in mid-June.
Mike Suffredini, NASA's space station program manager, said the next opportunity for Orbital's Cygnus spacecraft to fly to the outpost would be in the second week of June.

...high sun angles on the space station's orbit in early June will prevent the safe arrival of the Cygnus spacecraft until at least June 9. Sources said Orbital and NASA have not yet agreed on a target launch date in June.

Officials familiar with the space station's manifest said they would make the formal decision to delay the Orbital Sciences Cygnus mission once SpaceX's Dragon is berthed at the complex.
