Manager Terry Collins says Daisuke Matsuzaka is on standby for Saturday, in case Bartolo Colon has a setback with his back.
Matsuzaka failed to make the Mets Opening Day roster after making 6 spring starts going 1-1 with a 3.04 ERA. For the Mets AAA affiliate this season he has made 2 starts with no record but a 2.25 ERA and 12Ks in 12IP. Though likely too late for most to add Matsuzaka, he would be facing Atlanta so its probably best to stand clear regardless. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
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
