Chris Bosh will again not be playing tonight in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Miami Heat currently lead the series 2-1 after losing Game 3 Friday night.
Bosh injured his abdomen in Game 1 of the Heat’s series with the Pacers last round and hasn’t played since. The Heat won five games in a row without Bosh before losing Game 3 in Boston.
Bosh was expected to return in this series at some point. He traveled with the team for the first time for their last game and was seen participating in basketball drills.
The Celtics dominated in the paint in Game 3 scoring 58 points there with Kevin Garnett leading the way with 24 points and 11 rebounds.
LeBron James was really the only bright spot for the Heat in their Game 3 loss scoring 34 points.
The Heat will need a healthy Bosh to compete for a championship but aren’t desperate enough yet to rush him back to the court.
If Boston can even the series tonight and put a little more pressure on the Heat in this series, we could be seeing Bosh back soon. But the Heat do not plan to bring Bosh back before he is absolutely ready.
