Report: Heat PF Chris Bosh Has Strained Abdominal Muscle, MRI Confirms

An MRI has confirmed that Miami Heat power forward Chris Bosh has a strained abdominal muscle, according to ESPN's Tom Haberstroh. He is out indefinitely.

Bosh suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Heat's 95-86 win yesterday in Game 1 of their series with the Indiana Pacers -- he was fouled by Indy center Roy Hibbert, he went down, and he didn't return to the game. He finished with 13 points and five rebounds.

The All-Star power forward's status is unknown going forward, but we can speculate. As Adrian Ruhi of the Miami Herald noted this morning, a strain is much better news than a tear -- Utah Jazz big man Al Jefferson suffered a similar injury earlier this season and managed to fight through it without missing a game.

The Heat's series with the Pacers resumes tomorrow night, as Miami hosts Game 2 at 7 p.m. Eastern.
