Miami Heat's Chris Bosh out for Game 2 against Boston Celtics

Wednesday May 30th, 2012

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra confirmed Wednesday morning that Chris Bosh is still not ready to return from his abdominal strain and will miss tonight's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics, according to multiple tweets by media members.



Bosh has been out since Game 1 of Miami's previous series with the Indiana Pacers. The Heat initially struggled in his absence, but the team has adjusted in recent games.

In Game 1 against the Celtics, Miami dominated for stretches. NBA analyst Charles Barkley was impressed enough that he said, "I picked the Heat in five (games). I may have to change that to Heat in four. Boston has got no chance of beating those guys.''
