Dolphins have exercised the 5th year option on center Mike Pouncey.
The Dolphins were hoping to completely overhaul their offensive line from the Ritchie Incognito/Jonathan Martin situation, but probably realized the importance of a quality back-up center. Pouncey doesn't want to be out of a job or sit with the stigma of that case on him the rest of his career, so he'll toe the line and be a good soldier.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
