Michael Jordan may be returning to the game he once dominated. He trained with the Chicago Bulls yesterday, the third successive day he appeared at the team's headquarters, increasing speculation that he is about to make a comeback.

"We just have to wait to see what goes on," Phil Jackson, the Chicago Bulls coach, said. "He and I spoke about this possibility last September."

The ESPN television network, citing a "reliable" source, said last night that he will come back, but not for a couple of weeks.

Jordan, 32, led the Bulls to NBA titles in 1991, 1992 and 1993, and America was stunned when he announced his retirement in October 1993. He had a 32.3-point scoring average, the best in league history, and said he had nothing left to prove.

Then he tried playing baseball with the Chicago White Sox, who are owned by the Bulls' owner, Jerry Reinsdorf.
