Tommy-John surgery pioneer Dr. Frank Jobe died on Thursday at the age of 88. (No cause yet given).
While Dr. James Andrews is commonly known as the Tommy John doctor now a days, it was Dr. Frank Jobe who Andrews learned from. Dr. Jobe is known for inventing (in 1974) the transplant procedure that "resurrected the pitcher's arm by transferring a tendon from one part of a pitchers body to the injured elbow", which was eventually referred to as Tommy John surgery. Over 1,000 MLB players have undergone Tommy John surgery since 1974 according to the LA TImes.rnANALYST: Michael Pichan
Derrick Rose will not play against the Bucks Wednesday.
Rose was doing full-contact drills Monday and participating in 5-on-5 work Tuesday. He's building up his conditioning and it shouldn't be much longer before he's back on the court. How many minutes he logs per game once he does return might be in question as the Bulls are looking more towards the playoffs than anything else. Analysis: Howard Bender
Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) wil play Wednesday.
Jones has missed the last six games with a collapsed lung, so to see him get back on the court Wednesday is great news just from a humanistic standpoint. If he can continue to shine glass as he's done throughout the season (7.3 boards per game), then he'll be a nice asset down the stretch. Analysis: Howard Bender
