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.
I'd imagine the team will call Chris Bosh "a gametime decision" with every intention of him playing tomorrow's Game 5.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) June 4, 2012
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.
