The Jazz brass claims that Carlos will play around five minutes per quarter as he nurses himself back to health. I, personally, will wait to see him suited up and playing at a high level before I put too much hope in the Jazz' return to glory. But, it will certainly be nice to have a legitimate-sized power forward back on the squad. I'll miss Collins, though.
It does seem odd that Boozer became healthy right after (1) the Heat traded away any hope of signing Carlos over the summer and (2) rumors started to swirl that no team has enough money this summer to offer him real $$$. But regardless of the nobleness of his motivation, it seems that Carlos now has incentives to stick around at home games past halftime.
So, let's pour one out for the return of the man they call "the Booze." It's about damn time.
