Boozer Out At Least 1 Month

by Ryne Nelson

Carlos Boozer’s strained quad kept him out of action for over a month already, so what’s another month on top of that? Boozer, who missed 21 of the Jazz’s 33 games this season, is scheduled to undergo surgery Jan. 9. This means Boozer will be targeting a mid-February return.

From the Salt Lake Tribune:

Utah Jazz power forward Carlos Boozer will undergo surgery, probably next week, and will be sidelined for at least a month, Vice President of Basketball Operations Kevin O’Connor said Tuesday afternoon.

Injuries have not been kind to the Jazz this season. Only C.J. Miles has played every game (and started each time as well). The team luckily has a very capable backup in Paul “The Paperboy” Millsap to handle the load while Boozer’s gone. But the Jazz now need to be a bit more concerned about Phoenix gaining ground in another tight Western Conf. Playoff race.

    You know, the combo of Arenas, Boozer, T-Mac, and Camby on my fantasy team has been very troubling

    B Long, i can’t tell if your comment is aimed at Jukai or Boozer……and Paul Millsap is also out..

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    How long is Paul Millie out? And that was for Betrayal Skull Head Fu(ker or what ever they call him.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ RV

    Why the hell do you need surgery for a “strain”? But maybe it isn’t a strain and he has been selected for extreme makeover and he will need until mid-February to heal from all the hideous plastic surgery he will receive.
