Coach Tom Thibodeau of the Chicago Bulls has said that Carlos Boozer will be a game-time decision for Saturday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks.
Boozer did not practice Friday because of a sore right knee and was limited to rehab work and riding the bike during the team’s shoot around at the United Center on Saturday morning. Thibodeau said Boozer didn’t know how or when the injury occurred.
“Yeah, it’s just he has a little soreness, so we’ll see where he is tonight,” Thibodeau said after the shoot around.
The team is definitely dealing with some serious injury woes. He last thing they need is another player like Boozer missing some more time with a knee injury.Take Luol Deng for example, who is back from an Achilles injury, albeit his time is limited on the court. However, the team is looking to give him some more minutes.
“Lu’s still working his way back, but he feels real good, so that’s a good sign,” Thibodeau said. “[He could play] 30, 35, something in there. I would just say we’ll see how it unfolds, too.”
