Boozer set to go against Milwaukee

Carlos Boozer is expected to make his way back to the lineup for the Bulls when they travel to play the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

Boozer missed the team’s previous two games because of a sore right knee he suffered last Thursday against the Boston Celtics.

Joakim Noah didn’t practice as he was feeling under the weather, but he is expected to play Friday also. The high-energy big man wasn’t in any mood to talk to reporters on Tuesday after management agreed to trade Luol Deng, but still responded with 14 points, 16 rebounds and six assists in the Bulls 92-87 win over Phoenix.

“Jo has been around, he can handle things,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters. “Luol is not the first player that was ever traded from the Chicago Bulls. It’s the same thing when we get a new player, we always embrace whoever that new player is. That’s the way it is. We just focus on our team and improvement.”

The Bulls, winners of three straight and six of their last eight, will take another step in moving on without the two-time All-Star.

“We got to move on,” Thibodeau told reporters. “That’s the big thing. That’s the nature of this league. Just get ready for the next game.”
