09:50 AM ET 11.20 | When the Bulls began their seven-game road trip earlier this week, the hope was that power forward Carlos Boozer (broken right hand) would be ready to go when they return home in early December. Now it's looking like that might be a little ambitious, if not unrealistic. 'I'm getting the doctor's advice,'' Boozer said Friday before the Bulls played the Dallas Mavericks. ''He wants me to wait until the eight-week mark [before practicing with contact], and I'm trying to listen to him and at the same time listen to my body. I'm trying to wait until the eight-week mark to have full-contact practice, but I'm starting to get a little anxious.'' Boozer, though, admitted his hand still is healing after his cast was removed Nov. 2.

Hey Jigsaw, the Celtics just lost at home to a Durant-less OKC. Yeah, they've beaten Miami twice, but Miami is not a good defensive team. Boston's days of winning championships are over.

boston's got the best team in the east. it's gonna be boston-lakers again. both are loaded. like 12-deep loaded.

the bulls are already sick without boozer. he should be patient.

just gotta ask. did they really need to sign him? with all due respect, having boozer means less Taj Gibson.

"Boston's days of winning championships are over."
I think that's what everyone said last year...before the Celtics took it to a game 7 finals against a well fought loss to the Lakers.
Boston is just as good as any team, particularly in the East.

With Boozer healthy the Bulls might be the best team in the east.

Cleveland Cavaliers seem to keep getting back-stabbed by these POS's. **** his return. I don't care if he falls asleep and never wakes up.

What kinda **** deal is that? How about this: You go find out where Boozer lives, go to his home, and stomp on his hand with steel bottom working shoes. If you make the national news the next day, I'll give you $10.

In a seven game series I like he bulls chances. Rose always gets his on Rondo... well at this point Rose gets his on everybody. I like Noah and Asik vs Bostons centers. I also think the Bulls will have an advantage at power forward with a healthy Boozed a Taj Gibson. KG is a shell of the player he used to be. I also like Deng and Korver at SF... In short I think the Bulls can and will beat the Celtic's if they meet in the playoffs.

Hey man, with that ugly avatar of yours, you shouldn't even be commenting!
I said right when Booze got hurt that he will be out for extended periods of time. That;s just the kinda player he is, plays great in a contract year, and then goes MIA.
