Carlos Boozer has what in layman’s terms is a “boxers fracture,” a break in the hand often associated with punching. Not tripping over a gym bag and breaking the fall with your hand, which is what Boozer told the Bulls and the press.

The Bulls are good with that, coach Tom Thibodeau told the Chicago Sun Times.

“From what I understand, there’s nothing to it,” coach Tom Thibodeau said of the report. “I spoke to [general manager] Gar [Forman on Sunday]. The team’s not looking into anything. He tripped over a bag and he got hurt. It’s a non-issue.”

Really, what’s the point of an investigation anyway? Poke around your new star’s personal life to piss him off, where you may or may not find anything? So you can take away some of his money with fines. Great plan. As Matt Moore said yesterday, what is the reason for suspicion in the first place — a bad negotiation with Cleveland six years ago? The fact he got injured since then, like most of the league? Give up people.

The Bulls were right to let it go. When they get him back they can start focusing and see if the Bulls can become the team everyone in the organization believes they can be.

    – “So even if we found out he was lying, we’d still be on the hook for him for the duration of his contract AND he’d potentially be motivated even less? Random stumble in the night it was!”

    It’s funny how rumors spread like a wild fire. First it was a boxers injury, then he hit is wife because they are divorcing, then we find out he’s been divorced, then there was an investigation, now there isn’t. Good Lord, what’s the real story? It is not unusual for teams to investigate a players injury if it looks suspicious remember the lakers and radmanovic and monta ellis with golden state.
