Chris Bosh’s Status Unknown With Abdominal Strain

The Miami Heat may have walked away with a Game 1 over the Indiana Pacers yesterday, but concern immediately turned back to Chris Bosh and his abdominal strain injury. From the Sun-Sentinel: “The All-Star power forward was lost for the second half after sustaining a lower-abdominal strain on the follow-through of a second-quarter dunk that resulted in a 3-point play. Coach Erik Spoelstra did not sound as if Bosh was coming back any time soon. ‘We have some time now. We don’t know what Chris’ status is,’ Spoelstra said. ‘We won’t know until we get an MRI, move on from there.’ The initial sense was not encouraging. ‘You saw the look on his face,’ teammate Dwyane Wade said, ‘you knew something was wrong there.’ The Heat opened the second half with Ronny Turiaf starting in place of Bosh, relying extensively over the latter stages on former starting center Joel Anthony, whose energy sparked the Heat in the second half. Bosh’s injury effectively reduced the Heat to a Big Two, his afternoon was finished after going for 13 points and five rebounds in 15:48 in the first half.”

    If he’s out for more than a week this could torpedo Miami’s championship hopes. IF they get past the Pacers.
