Chris Bosh was ominously ruled "out indefinitely" after an MRI revealed that he suffered an abdominal strain during the Miami Heat's Game 2 win over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. Head coach Erik Spoelstra gave a more optimistic prognosis Monday, saying that he feels better about the forward's status than he did during the game Sunday.
Spoelstra feels better about Bosh today than in-game yesterday. "We thought it could be a lot worse."— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) May 14, 2012
Fans would rather a set timetable for Bosh's return, the sooner the better, but Spoelstra's latest still comes as very good news. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade did everything they could during the opening game of the second round series to will the Heat to a hard-fought fourth quarter victory. Bosh's presence would certainly take a lot of pressure off the two superstars to produce every night.
