As reported by Scott Powers of ESPNChicago.com, Boozer scored 15 points and added ten rebounds in 28 minutes. Coach Tom Thibodeau wasn't concerned about Boozer's injury, just with his conditioning. Boozer will have until the 19th to improve his conditioning for the game against the Toronto Raptors.
Taj Gibson started in Boozer's absence and played very well, averaging 22.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. Back to his customary role off the bench against the Nets, Gibson logged 31 minutes and scored 16 points.
