Chris Bosh Injury: Heat Forward Could Return For Game 5

The Miami Heat just might have a powerful reinforcement in their lineup this week in the form of Chris Bosh. The injured forward could be a game-time decision when the Heat host the Boston Celtics for Game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday night, ESPN's Tom Haberstroh said on Monday morning.

Bosh's return could be big for the Heat, obviously. Many expected the team to struggle without the forward, but the duo of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have managed to carry much of the load, with key contributions from other members of the team.

Haberstroh expects Heat coach Erik Spoelstra to discuss Bosh's status on Monday afternoon.

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.
