Report: Washington Wizards forward, Trevor Booker, Could Return Tomorrow Against the Chicago Bulls

The Washington Wizards have several players sidelined before the start of the regular season, but it seems like forward Trevor Booker may be ready to make his return.

To my knowledge, Booker underwent a knee procedure about three weeks prior to the start of training camp and was limited in practice ever since then. The Wizards have been practicing in Brazil since Tuesday, and from the looks of it, Booker was able to scrimmage with the team.

With Emeka Okafor out indefinitely, the Wizards need their backup bigs to step up in the rebounding department. Booker, who is known for his hustle and energy on the court, has a slightly above average TRR (total rebounding rate) at 14.9, (league average is 9.8) so he should help on the boards. Washington was out rebounded by the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, and the Chicago Bulls’ front court won’t cut the Wizards any slack. Although Booker won’t help much on the offensive side of the floor, his energy could definitely help the Wizards against top tier teams like the Bulls.

Hopefully we’ll be getting more good news regarding Washington’s injuries in the coming days. Emeka Okafor and rookie Otto Porter remain out indefinitely.
