Boozer Is Out Of Action Again

Posted by

It’s true that accidents do happen and they tend to happen to everybody at one time or another. Still, how interesting is it that once again, Carlos Boozer has sustained an injury that will keep him from playing the sport that he is paid so handsomely to play. This time it wasn’t an injury that he received when playing or practicing basketball, but rather this injury is the result of an accident that occurred at his home when he tripped over a bag on the floor. He fractured the fifth metacarpal bone in his shooting hand and will require surgery. This latest in a long line of problems which have kept Boozer off of the basketball court is a confirmation that it was in the Jazz’s best interest to have Boozer on another team. This time it is another club that is paying his hefty salary while he is on the mend. Speculation is that it will take a minimum of two months before Boozer will see any action on the court and if past history repeats itself, it could be a lot longer than that. Although Carlos Boozer seems to have had more than his fair share of misfortune when it comes to injuries and missing games, he maintains that he doesn’t feel like he’s jinxed. His former teammates on the Jazz seem unanimous in their well wishes for him and feel bad that he has suffered yet another set back.
