Jordan Practices, Return Uncertain
DENVER (AP) _ Michael Jordan practiced with the Washington Wizards on Tuesday for the first time since undergoing knee surgery, but said he has no plans to play Wednesday against the Nuggets or Thursday in Utah.
Jordan had been rehabilitating his right knee since his Feb. 27 surgery and was not with the team for the first four games on its current seven-game trip. Washington is 2-2 on the trip but 4-10 since Jordan had torn cartilage repaired.
If Jordan indeed misses the games against Denver and Utah, he could return Sunday when the Wizards play the Raptors in Toronto.
Team spokesman Matt Williams said Jordan has not specified the date of a possible return.
Washington is in sixth place in the Atlantic Division and 10th in the Eastern Conference with 15 games remaining. The Wizards would need to climb into eighth place or better in order to qualify for the playoffs.
