Boozer practices; should play tomorrow

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Carlos Boozer participated in the Bulls' brief practice Friday at the Berto Center and is likely to play Saturday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers after missing the last three games with a sprained left ankle.

"I'm good, better and better and I'm looking forward to tomorrow," Boozer said. "I think there's a good chance I'll play tomorrow. My ankle felt great today. I ran little on the treadmill, got some shots up early and walked through some stuff with the team. My ankle feels pretty good."

As long as there's no setback, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau expects Boozer to be in the starting lineup against the Cavaliers.

"We didn't do a whole lot today, but [trainer] Fred [Tedeschi] cleared him, so if he's OK tomorrow after the shootaround he goes."

The Bulls went 2-1 during Boozer's absence, but the offense could use a boost after scoring 82 points in each of the last two games.

"The big thing is he gives us a low-post threat," Thibodeau said. "We're probably relying too much on jump shots. It gives us more of a balance to our offense."
