Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh will have no minute restrictions Thursday night during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, his second game since returning from a lower-abdominal injury.

Bosh was effective offensively during Game 5, scoring nine points to go with seven rebounds in only 14 minutes. But he looked lost on defense at times, including once when he double-teamed Keyon Dooling off the ball while Kevin Garnett rolled to the hoop for a dunk.
Coach Erik Spoelstra kept Bosh on the bench during crunch time as Boston stole a 94-90 victory, saying afterward it would not have been "fair" to Bosh to insert him into such a key situation.
