Analysis: Rose has sat out the last two practices as he works his way back into shape after sitting out most of the last two seasons, though there has been no indication from the Chicago Bulls star or U.S. officials that he is hurting. Rose said after Tuesday's practice he just wanted extra rest. Rose started the Americans' exhibition game against Brazil on Saturday. The team still has 16 players on the roster and must get down to 12 before the Basketball World Cup.

Analysis: USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo says the injured Chicago Bulls guard will be invited to training camp in July and ''is welcome to show us where he is.'' Colangelo said Wednesday that if Rose is ready, ''he has a chance to make the team.'' Rose had surgery in November to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, and the Bulls said he would miss the rest of the season. But Colangelo says Chicago is encouraging Rose and USA Basketball to consider him playing this summer.

He sat out last year while recovering from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The coach also repeated several times on Wednesday that Rose will miss the rest of the season.

Analysis: Rose has played two preseason games without any sign of problems. The first NBA game in South America now will be missing its biggest star.

Analysis: Rose is expected to be ready after sitting out last season while recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

How can teams acquire players who are entering their primes without having to live through the potentially massive transition of prospects coming from the minors to the big leagues? The Red Sox have two such case studies. The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent. Red Sox assistant director of player personnel discusses the scouting process involved with landing Castillo. The episode also features Brock Holt, the one rookie who played at a consistently high level for the Red Sox this year. Holt explores some of the distinctions that might help to explain why he did not experience some of the struggles that characterized the seasons of Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.
