Report: Chris Bosh To Return For Game 5

BOSTON (CBS) – It is looking like Miami Heat Big 3 will be intact for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals Tuesday night.

Miami forward Chris Bosh, sidelined for three weeks with an abdominal strain, is expected to be activated for Game 5 if he doesn’t suffer a setback during workouts over the next two days, according to ESPN.

Bosh has missed nine games since suffering the injury in Game 1 of the East Semifinals against the Indiana Pacers. He had been working out on-court over the last week and made the trip to Boston for Games 3 and 4 of the Conference Finals.

While it’s unclear if Bosh will be restricted when he returns, he will certainly help Miami stabilize their front-court. Miami has used three different starting centers since Bosh went down, with erratic play from Joel Anthony and Ronnie Turiaf.

Miami has out-rebounded Boston 162-158 in the first four games of the series.

Bosh averaged 14.7 points and 6.8 rebounds in six playoff games this season before being sidelined.
