Chris Bosh Injury: Erik Spoelstra Says There's Still No Timetable For Return

Chris Bosh is back to working out after missing two weeks with an abdominal strain, but there's no telling when he'll get back to real basketball work for the Miami Heat. Bosh went through a light workout on Sunday, but was never expected to play in Game 1, and Spoelstra was never planning to have him available.

Spoelstra said that Bosh's workout was a "positive sign", but that he's not far enough along in his rehabilitation for the team to start thinking about when he can reclaim his place in the starting lineup.

"We'll continue to re-evaluate him every day. He'll continue to do his rehab. When he starts legitimate basketball work, I'll pay attention a little more ... He just did the next step in the progression of his rehab. There's still no timetable."

The Heat were able to get by the Indiana Pacers in six games without Bosh, but they struggled without him and relied on LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to take over games offensively. Additionally, the Heat will have to be creative in how they defend Kevin Garnett without Bosh on the floor.
