Boozer, Deng Injury Update

Chicago Tribune reporter K.C. Johnson reports that Carlos Boozer (ankle) is inactive against the Atlanta Hawks, however Luol Deng is a gametime decision with a deep thigh bruise.

Tom Thibodeau will start Kurt Thomas in lieu of Boozer, citing Thomas’ excellent play in the starting lineup during Joakim Noah’s absence and not wanting to disrupt Taj Gibson’s chemistry with the second unit.
