Michael Jordan’s son transferring from Illinois

compiled from staff and wire reports

Jeff Jordan’s up-and-down, on-again, off-again basketball career at Illinois ended Friday when the school granted him a release which gives clearance to transfer to another school.

It isn’t totally clear if Jordan intends to play during his senior season at another school, but being release from Illinois is required by the NCAA if a student wants to leave to play at another school. A player could transfer without the release if he didn’t want to play.

Jordan, a defensive reserve, left the Illini program last June but changed his mind in October and rejoined the team for his junior season. He averaged 13.8 minutes and 1.6 points a game last season for Illinois which ended up in the NIT with a record of 21-15. Jordan played in 92 career games for the Illini.

His younger brother, Marcus, plays for Central Florida.

Brian Vickers will miss the rest of NASCAR season

compiled from staff, wire and NASCAR reports

Brian Vickers will miss the remainder of the NASCAR season schedule because of blood clots in his lungs and left leg.

Vickers was hospitalized two nights last week after feeling chest pains during a visit to Washington, D.C.  Testing revealed the clots, and Vickers missed last weekend’s race in Dover.

Vickers returned to North Carolina following his release from the hospital on Friday, but said a recurrence of chest pains sent him back to the hospital the next day. He spent another two nights hospitalized, and the decision to sit out the remainder of the season to receive treatment was made shortly after.

Brian Vickers (NASCAR)

The 26-year-old Vickers is being treated for a pulmonary embolism with the blood thinner Coumadin, and his physician couldn’t clear him to race because of the dangers of the driver being injured in a crash.

Dr. Steven Limentani of Carolina Hematology Oncology, who treated NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick when he battled leukemia, said the clots in Vickers’ lungs were “relatively small,” but gave the driver pains similar to being punched in the ribs every time he took a breath.

Staff writer Steve Basford contributed to this story

Reds manager Dusty Baker knew the only way to get over and get past Thursday 10-9 loss to Atlanta was to come back and beat Cleveland.

After all, the Reds have been bouncing back well since April 25, going 17-7.

Laynce Nix (mlb)

Laynce Nix had three hits, including a tiebreaking double in the sixth inning, sending the slumping Indians to their fifth straight loss, despite a big night from Shin-Soo Choo. Moved from third to second in the batting order, Choo homered twice, had three hits and three RBI’s, but Cleveland fell to 10 games below .500, a season worst.
