Utah Jazz forward Carlos Boozer, who has yet to play this season, suffered a setback in his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury, a Salt Lake City television station reported Friday.

According to KSL-TV, Boozer aggravated the injury during his workouts and there is now no timetable on his return to the active roster.

Boozer hasn't played since Feb. 14, when he strained his right foot during a game. He said entering training camp that the foot was completely healed, but injured his hamstring in practice and did not play in a preseason game.

Boozer averaged a team-high 17.8 points and 9.0 rebounds in 51 games before missing the rest of the 2004-05 season with the foot injury.

Boozer had been intensifying his rehab and was believed to be close to a return to the Jazz, now leading the NBA's Northwest Division at 19-17.
