Carlos Boozer

Utah Jazz

After being spoiled by the consistency of John Stockton and Karl Malone, the Jazz fought injuries throughout the 2004-05 season. Boozer, their leading scorer last season, missed Utah's final 31 games with an injured foot and hasn't played in the preseason due to a strained hamstring. With a young point guard and other unknowns throughout their lineup, Boozer will need to get into the flow quickly if the Jazz hope to stay in contention.
