Bulls Expect Boozer to Play in Game 1

Booz is officially listed as questionable with a case of turf toe, but it looks like the Bulls will have their star forward on the court come Monday: “‘It’s hard to say, but I’m thinking that he will be able to (play),’ coach Tom Thibodeau said. ‘He had some discomfort, but it’s gotten better each day. He’s getting quite a bit of treatment and rest. He’s doing some lifting and things like that. We’ve been through so many different scenarios all season. We had the stretch where Carlos was out. We had the stretch where Jo (Noah) was out. I’ve said all along: We feel very good about our bench.’ Most teammates expect Boozer to play. Despite his much-publicized struggles against the Pacers, Boozer fought through consistent early foul trouble to average 10 points and 10.2 rebounds.”

    “Bulls fans wish they could morph Taj and Carlos into 1 player”


    Man. My patience is starting to reach its limit on Booz. I’ve said nuthin negative bout him all yr long n hopes of him redeeming himself. I don’t even care 4 him yelling and hollering all the time cuz @ least I know he’s not a malcontent (n public @ least) and is not pouting over his role on the team. I mean he can STILL redeem himself n this series, but im not counting on it. Aside from him trying 2 rival Kirsten Dugnst as best cheerleader he hasn’t done jack sh!t 4 us n the playoffs, which is why we brought him n the 1st place. Damn Booz!

    when it comes to matchups, this might be harder on Boozer than last series…now he has to face Horford…I think he will redeem himself and play good this series. At least I hope as a Bulls fan…
