|Boozer Practicing with Bulls After Hand Injury
|DEERFIELD, ILL. (AP) -- Carlos Boozer is back practicing with the Chicago Bulls.
Boozer broke the fifth metatarsal in his right hand in an accident at his home on Oct. 2. He says he feels good, but coach Tom Thibodeau wasn't ready to make a decision on whether Boozer would play Wednesday against the Orlando Magic.
Thibodeau added that the final decision on Boozer's availability will be made by the ninth-year forward, who joined the team over the summer after signing a five-year, $75 million contract as a free agent. Boozer missed the entire preseason and hasn't played in any of Chicago's 15 regular-season games.
