He missed the latter part of the season due to an injury, which led to the Jazz missing the playoffs for the second time in 22 years. Even though there was a big disappointment in him, Boozer continued to work hard. For a long period, he was suffering from the injury. He was reinserted into the starting lineup in the middle of March of the 2005–2006 season. After that, he put together a strong season, averaging over 20 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game, and re-establishing himself as the Jazz's starting power forward.

He was among the top five players in the league in terms of scoring, rebounding, and field goal percentage by mid-December.
