Chris Bosh Injury: Heat Forward To Have MRI, May Be Out Long-Term

After missing the second half of his team's second-round game against the Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of an injury he sustained during the game.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, the injury is likely a major concern and something that could sideline Bosh for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

As pointed out by Windhorst, the Heat did win the rebounding battle in the second half of today's game. That's the good news.

The bad news is that it was due in large part to an excellent all-around effort from LeBron James, who had to play all 24 minutes of the third and fourth quarters. That's something you can't really rely on in a best-of-seven playoff series

The Pacers boast an imposing frontcourt, and were fifth in the Eastern Conference in offensive-rebounding rate during the regular season.

No word on when the results of the MRI will be announced to the public.

Game two of the series is on Tuesday.
