Jordan Makes An Early Return

Michael Jordan made his return to action on Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets. The Washington Wizards activated their star swingman from the injured list much earlier than expected. It was originally thought that Jordan would be out a month after having surgery on his right knee February 27th.

However, "his airness" participated in the Wizards' morning shootaround and later pronounced himself fit enough to get back on the court. Jordan rejoined his teammates in time for Tuesday's practice, during which he wore a neoprene sleeve on his surgically-repaired knee, but did not walk or run with a limp.

Coach Doug Collins said that Jordan was anxious to return to keep the Wizards' playoff hopes alive. Washington lost eight of its last 12 games without Jordan. Although, on the night of the great one's return, the Wizards blew out the hapless Nuggets, keeping their playoff hopes alive.
