SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Carlos Boozer is hoping to return to the Utah Jazz lineup this week after missing the last 10 games with a strained tendon in his left thigh.
Boozer says a return Tuesday night at Minnesota was unlikely, but Thursday at home against Portland was possible.
Guard Brevin Knight was back with the team Monday after spending Saturday night in a Phoenix hospital. Knight was hit in the throat when he collided with Phoenix's Goran Dragic in the first half Saturday. He was taken to the hospital at halftime and held overnight for observation.
The Jazz say other than some swelling, results of a scan on Knight's throat were normal.
