The Miami Heat are being predictably sly about Chris Bosh’s Game 5 status, but — though he is officially considered day-to-day — chances are the seven-time All-Star will return to Miami’s lineup tomorrow night. And he wanted to return 10 days ago. (ESPN)
Speaking at AmericanAirlines Arena on Monday afternoon, Spoelstra indicated that Bosh has made significant progress in his rehab from an abdominal strain suffered in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
“It’s premature to say he’ll definitively play,” Spoelstra said. “The reality is that this is not a normal situation. (The situation) is heightened and it is extreme. We have to be judicious in our evaluations.” …
“He said he was ready 10 days ago,” Spoelstra said. “They all say that. I think league-wide right now, the four teams, there’s probably more than a handful of players that wouldn’t be playing right now (if it was the regular season).”
