Boozer fine after first practice
Carlos Boozer participated in the Bulls’ full practice on Monday and it’s looking more and more like the power forward will see his first game action Wednesday when the Bulls host the Orlando Magic at the United Center.
“I’m doing good,” Boozer said afterward. “I thought I had a pretty good day of practice, my hand felt good and it’s getting better and better. That’s all I can hope for.
“A couple of times it got hit, which is good to find out how it felt after getting hit. [It was] a little sore, but overall I thought it was a good day.”
Boozer, who had surgery to repair a broken right hand on Oct. 5, has been medically cleared, so the decision of when he plays in a game is his.
“When my hand’s ready,” he said of when he’ll see game action. “It’ll be my decision.”
