Chris Bosh Injury Status: Miami Heat Could Get Big Man Back For Game 5

The Miami Heat had chances on Sunday night, but neither LeBron James nor Dwyane Wade were able to come through in the clutch, allowing the Boston Celtics to tie the Eastern Conference Finals at two games apiece. The Heat could get a boost by the time the two teams meet again, as the third member of Miami's "Big Three" seems poised for a return.

There isn't anything concrete as of yet -- and likely won't be until the Heat meet with the media on Monday afternoon -- but ESPN's Tom Haberstroh took an educated guess on Chris Bosh's status for Game 5.

It'll be interesting to see how effective Bosh actually is when he returns considering the length of time he's been in a suit on the bench ... not to mention the underrated seriousness of an abdominal strain. Either way, the team with more talent available usually ends up winning.
