Carlos Boozer is extremely sure he's capable of debuting this week in a Bulls jersey -- maybe even in Wednesday's game against the Magic. He'll most likely be wearing a protective glove on the court. Here's him taking a couple of shots with it and showing it to reporters:
I haven't hid my uneasiness with this glove, especially when Boozer himself implies it isn't comfortable, but I trust Boozer's basketball I.Q. and the fact he's been shooting with it for weeks now gives me more confidence that he's skillful enough to temporarily adapt.
UPDATE: Coach Tom Thibodeau expects Boozer to play Wednesday, K.C. Johnson reported at the Chicago Tribune:
Carlos Boozer practiced for the second straight day and, barring a
setback at Wednesday's shootaround, should make his Bulls' debut against
the Magic, coach Tom Thibodeau said.
Boozer, who is playing with a padded protective device on the fifth
metacarpal he fractured on Oct. 2, said "it's still a little sore."
Thibodeau said Boozer looked good in Tuesday's practice and showed no signs of pain.
