Seen and heard last night at United Center in Chicago:
COMING BACK Nobody seems to know when or if Michael Jordan will play again this season, to say nothing of next year, which is entirely up in the air. Heck, no one is even saying when he will begin his rehabilitation from the arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last Wednesday.
However, Wizards coach Doug Collins, who has talked with Jordan just about every day since the surgery, said he believes that if Jordan can come back, even if the Wizards are out of the playoffs when he's able play, he will.
"I think he's going to do everything he can to come back," Collins said. "But again, I don't know what the healing process is going to be. I don't even think he knows. In his heart I know that he would like to come back and finish out the season. I don't think he wants to go out on the injured list. I don't think he wants to go out with knee surgery. I think he really wants to come back and finish, and then I think he'd make an evaluation on next year."
Jordan told Collins that "the only way I can play next year is to have something done on my knee", so maybe Jordan is planning on playing next season.
BYE, BYE, GREG The Bulls answered the wishes of veteran guard Greg Anthony, waiving him yesterday so that he would be able to sign with playoff team.
