Chris Bosh Injury: Heat Forward Potentially Out For Pacers Series

With more coming out about the injury to Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh, there is serious doubt that he could be back at all for Miami's current series against the Indiana Pacers. There's even the possibility that he could be done for the playoffs. He expressed doubt himself in an interview with ESPN Heat Insider Tom Haberstroh.

If Bosh is indeed held out of the remainder of the playoffs, the Miami Heat lose an inside player that helped them get the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. However, unlike an injury to another star player, Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, this should not be as devastating to the Heat.
