Chris Bosh Injury Update: Heat Forward Out For Game 1 With Abdominal Strain

Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh will not return to Game 1 of the team's 2012 NBA Playoffs second-round series against the Indiana Pacers. The team announced that the injury is an abdominal strain. Bosh suffered the injury after falling awkwardly on his left leg following a slam dunk late in the first half. Ronny Turiaf has replaced Bosh in the lineup.

"We've never seen Chris Bosh go back to the room like that," Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo relayed to ABC sideline reporter Lisa Salters.

Bosh was having an excellent game, posting 13 points and five rebounds. If he is out for an extended period of time, the Heat may be in trouble. They were at a disadvantage inside against Roy Hibbert and David West even with Bosh playing.
