Chris Bosh Injury Update: Game 5 Return Possible But Not Definite, Says Erik Spoelstra

Despite a report saying Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh would return in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics, coach Erik Spoelstra said the big man will be a game-time decision.

Without Bosh, the Heat have been susceptible inside against the Boston Celtics, who have turned to Kevin Garnett in the low post as a crutch during the series. If Bosh returns in Game 5, even at less than full strength, he will provide a longer detriment to Garnett's post game while being a threat Garnett will have to handle when the Celtics are on defense. In Games 1 through 4, Garnett spent most of his defensive time roaming the court freely because he has little respect for the offensive talents of Joel Anthony, Ronny Turiaf or Udonis Haslem.
