Chris Bosh will play in Game 5 against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night in Miami, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com:

According to multiple sources, the Heat are hoping to activate Chris Bosh for Tuesday's Game 5 if he doesn't suffer a setback in workouts over the next two days. Bosh declined to discuss his status following the Heat’s 93-91 overtime loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday, which tied the series at 2-2.

While his return would obviously be positive news for the Heat, players who come back from abdominal strains typically need a while before they play starters minutes.
