MIAMI — An MRI on Monday showed Chris Bosh suffered an abdominal strain and the Miami Heat have ruled him out indefinitely. The team is operating under the belief he’ll miss the rest of the playoff series with the Indiana Pacers.
The injury occurred on a dunk during the first half of the Heat’s 95-86 Game 1 win on Sunday.
The fact that the team didn’t put a timetable on Bosh’s return suggests that his strain is not mild. But the team hasn’t ruled him out for the season, so his injury likely falls within the moderate category of abdominal strains. Typically, players who have suffered this type of injury have been out from two to four weeks.
