Chris Bosh Injury Update: Season Would 'Have To Be Extended' For Him To Return To Court

Chris Bosh just spoke for the first time about an abdominal injury that will sideline him indefinitely, and he gave an interesting, if slightly confusing, answer on his future status. The Miami Heat forward was asked when he might return to the court, and he said, as of now, the only way was if the season was extended.

That could mean a few different things. Technically, it could mean that he's available to return before Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers, when the Heat would know they were not sweeping the series. However, it's more likely that Bosh would not return until the Eastern Conference Finals at the earliest, assuming the Heat even beat the Pacers and get there.

There's also a chance that even that timeline could be optimistic.

Bottom line: Heat fans should not expect Bosh back in the lineup for a while.
