If they had to play the Bulls in the East I'd say this, but the fact of the matter with who they will have to play in the East they don't really need him. In fact Miami could have lost 1 of it's big 3 in the East and still got to the finals this year with the injuries that have happened to Chicago, etc.

I'm worried... But I don't think this will matter much until the finals. Lebron and Wade beat the Pacers 5 on 2 so they should get past the Pacers and then if they are both on top of their game the Celtics shouldn't be a big problem either. Lebron looks more determined than ever this year and I don't think anything can or will stop him

Thats what Bulls fans said about Philly after Drose went down. (Look at our record in the regular season without him) The 8th seed suddenly gets a little better when a Star is down. Same could happen to the Heat. We might actually want to play the games and see what happens first. indiana is a very BIG team and Miami is not.

Sounds like they still need to confirm whether or not there's a tear. If there is, that's his season I'd have to think.
I still think Miami is capable to get out of the east but beating LAL, SA, or OKC will be much more difficult.

Now if they go from here through the finals and win a championship without Bosh, do they consider dealing him away for parts that might tighten things up?
EDIT: I say this because I think Lebron can be their PF.

I agree and I also think they will have some trouble verse Celtics too if they face em in ECF. And so the injury bug just keeps on continuing for the whole NBA....

Well, Bosh basically is the Heat frontcourt... Even though he doesn't score 30 points a game, he creates space with his range for James and Wade which makes it easier for them to get to the basket. MIGHT be a bigger loss then it seems, depending on how long he'll be out.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think losing Bosh is huge. He doesn't get nearly enough credit for his play. The Heat may get by Indy without him, but if the they have to face Boston without Bosh in the ECF, my money is on the Lucky Charms Gang winning the series.

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Let's just wait and see. I have a feeling Bosh will recover well enough to play in a week or so. Just a hunch.

Max.This
05-14-2012, 01:17 PM
indefinite can mean a series or the rest of playoffs. Lebron had to play the whole 2nd half to beat them and thats because bosh threw down 13 in the first half. Looks like Wade and Lebron need to play 48 minutes game 2. Recipe for injury to be honest. Spo is going to play them both atleast 45 mins a piece to get the win. Indiana didn't look like the New york Knicks out there.

This is big for Miami. And let's be honest, Bosh doesn't strike me as a guy who heals quickly. Even if he plays, he'll be hurt and again, he doesn't strike me as someone that will play well through pain.

Stinkyoutsider
05-14-2012, 01:25 PM
Bosh will probably be back next series. He's really the only offensive big the Heat have so they'll miss him. I wouldn't rely on Turiaf or Anthony to give anything other than screens and rebounding on the offensive end so Lebron and DWade should think about getting into the post some now that Bosh isn't down there.

without bosh the heat will lose to the celtics. The celtics are now fully healthy and are playing their best ball when it matters. You can't say the celtics dont have a chance just because the hawks took them to 7. Every Series is different, every game is different. Rondo is having all around games. Garnett looks way younger. I like the idea of Allen as the sixth man. And Pierce is still clutch. Celtics vs lakers one last time with the same core from the past 2 bouts will be sick.

Although Boston could potentially have something to say about that. I would still put my money on Bron & Wade.

Stern really ****ed up with the scheduling this year. They should have played a max of 40 something regular season games. Rose's career could never be the same, and now this. Way to go ******.

not exactly the same core, no perk=bynum or gasoft will run rampant depending on who is not going to be guarded by garnett, i think bass is just too small to handle with those 7 footers but yea the heat will put him a good run against the C's but if bosh is not there, there 3 pt shooters better be on or that miami offense will severely miss bosh's ability to space the floor.

05-14-2012, 02:03 PM
I hope he's well rested and able to play against the Celtics/76ers, but first of all, let's take care of the Pacers. They are not going away anywhere unless Wade and James continue to dominate. Our three-point shooters will have to step up big time too. Can't win too many games with zero threes made.

Jumi
05-14-2012, 02:11 PM
What's with the "Nostradmus" and all this other silly nonsense when it comes to this injury! Bosh is huge for the Heat! If the Celtics stay healthy and make it to the ECF they are going to be a serious problem for the Heat! They will not beat the C's without Bosh. It's going to be a tough series WITH him! FYI only sensitive fans think commenting on this means you enjoy seeing a guy get hurt, but there is a reason people wait until the Injury Report is released in the NFL before making a bet. Injuries to key players matter!

Always hate to see the injuries because you want to see the expected matchups. We won't get Chicago-Miami and now we're (most likely) going to have to see a Miami-Boston with Miami having limited big man depth as it is? I honestly feel like KG is going to have a field day. But if you watched the 2nd half of the Heat game, it was the D-Wade and Lebron show. Expect to see more of that this series.

Let's hope Bosh to a speedy recover so he can come back for the ECF. If they're saying he's out "indefinitely" and nothing more, that is hopefully good enough news that he isn't done for the playoffs, but they're just taking every precaution necessary due what the league has seen with other team injuring their star players. The HEAT have championship on their brains so if they know they'll need Bosh, they will take it easy with him the rest of the way.

Bosh has heart and took the Finals loss the most out of the big 3 last year. If he has ANY chance of coming back, you bet your @$$ that he's coming back and giving his all.

In fact Miami could have lost 1 of it's big 3 in the East and still got to the finals this year with the injuries that have happened to Chicago, etc.

The Bulls couldn't beat the HEAT last year with a healthy Derrick Rose. The Bulls team prety much stayed the same, the HEAT improved slightly. That being said, you'd be a fool to take a Rose-less Bulls over a Bosh-less Heat. Rose has a huge impact on the Bulls on both sides of the floor, Bosh has an impact on offense but they are the same defense with Turiaf out there.

Not good for Bosh.

Abdominal strains don't heal like alot of standard injuries. It's like having hamstring or groin issues, but worse because of how often the abdominal muscles are used in basketball.

Weakened muscles are especially susceptible to additional injuries.

Not to mention the word "indefinite" is never good.

I think Bosh is out of most of the series at a minimum, and potentially several weeks to the remaining season depending on the severity of the injury and whether he reinjures it or not. Hard to do considering how many things we do in our everyday activity that require the active use of our abdominal muscles.

Condolences to the Heat.

And this series just got alot tighter.

ottograham14
05-14-2012, 03:53 PM
Didn't Manu miss about 15 games this season with the same injury which was the equivalant of about 3 weeks this year in the season schedule. If Bosh misses three weeks that is apparently the median for abdominal strains than that is this series and next series with him possibly seeing a Game 6 and 7 in the ECF's if they get past Indy. Should be very interesting now as you would have to assume that Indy is going to bang nonstop inside with Hibbert and West.

Look for LeBron at the 4 a lot more with Battier and Miller transitioning in at the 3. Will Indy be able to keep up with that speed or will they have to go small too and waste their advantage of size.

Crazy year for playoff injuries just continues. Sucks for us no doubt. People can say what they want about Bosh but the Heat are not as good without him. This levels the playing field IMO. Gonna be a tough grind now

Looks as if Bosh will be out til probably mid of next series, and probably will not be more than 80% healthy throughout the PS, and if this is indeed the case than it makes MIA a bit of an underdog to win it all, which is perfect for Lebron's legacy. It gives the Heat a built in, legit excuse if they fall short and makes for an incredible achievement if they can still somehow win it all.

If Bosh is out for the rest of the playoffs and the Heat win the championship, i wonder how hell feel. I do feel bad for him because it seems like he really wanted to play. At the same time he did take a third wheel role, when he could have easily been the second main option on a contender team. If they still win the championship without him, he shouldn't be that surprised.

Bosh opens up so much for Lebron and Wade with his mid range J, that alone pulls a big out the paint which gives Wade and Lebron room to attack........ well hear comes and extra dose of flopping lol. In all seriousness if this turns into a nagging injury, you can forget them passing the Celtics out east.

This allows Hibbert to stay near the rim now. This pretty much also takes away the pick and pop they have. Not sure if this effect anything, but this gives teams full advantage down low.

Some people are really downplaying Bosh. The Miami big man rotation now is going to look like Haslem, Anthony, and Turiaf. If LeBron and/or Wade struggle, they will lose. Hopefully Bosh returns by the ECF, or else this may be another disappointing postseason for Heat fans.

Welp.

As I kept saying yesterday in the GT, abdominal strains aren't a joke...and can be really pesky. It was foolish to assume he'd just brush it off like a lot felt.

Bad break. The Heat still should be fine. LeBron and Wade have still done more/as much with just as little as what they have around them now.

Ouch town cotton, Year 2 in jeapordy?



look, I am not a fan of the heat (Since the whole Knicks/Heat rivalry of the late 90's) and am definitely NOT a fan of Lebron...but as long as Lebron doesn't get injured, that team still has not just a small chance but a big chance to win.

I just wish this would have happened during game 1 or game 2 of the Knicks/Heat series....

This.

Bosh is under-rated as a piece on the Heat. His ability to space the floor are important to maximizing the game of Lebron and Wade.

His role as the #3 scoring option isn't going to be easy to replace.

I also expect the Heat paint defense is going to suffer somewhat. Maybe not so much with the starting Line up with Turiaf but the bench may have even more issues than it already does.

Depending on how long he's out, it could definitely cost the Heat.

Things just keep opening up for the Celtics. First Rose, now Bosh.

It's fun to make fun of Bosh for many things, but the truth is that he's an important piece to the Heat and a solid defender for them. For anybody saying that this doesn't matter much, you're wrong. He's still a part of the big 3, like it or not, and is a quality player. (I feel so dirty defending Bosh, but still)

By watching the Bulls fall to the sixers in the first round after losing important player one right after the other and Deng playing one-handed. I was optimistic. As for the Bosh injury same situation, you won't really know how it'll affect the heat until Game 2. A better prediction of how they will do against two all-star post players in hibbert and west in game 2 will tell you the way this series is going to go. I can see the Heat squeaking by the Celtics in 7, but as one user said looks like its going to be a tough grind from here on out for the Heat.................unless another important player gets injured

LOL Longhorn you are THE biggest Wade hater ever. Seriously. Wade and Lebron are going to go down as one of the best combos in NBA history when all is said and done (in my opinion) and Chris Bosh is only going to be a mention in that conversation. Guarantee when the contracts are up, Wade and Lebron (who are best friends) will work something out so they can stay together and build a team around them with Boshes money. Bosh is just along for the ride.

Wade and LeBron's play don't complement each other...that's why you see Wade play less minutes and take less shots. Bosh and LeBron play great together.

Even without Bosh the Heat have a good chance of taking the ECF.

Indiana isn't exactly a powerhouse, and no telling what Boston will be like by the ECF. I don't think anyone thinks the 76ers are favorites against the Heat, Bosh or no Bosh.

That said, it doesn't really matter. If the Heat are about Championship or bust, what are they going to do when they run into OKC or the Spurs?

I am predicting an unhappy ending if they reach the Championship...

And before I get ripped on saying how big of a loss this is being a Bulls fan........I was more worried about the Thunder then the Heat. I was more worried about the Thunder because of their star power AND depth. Don't get me wrong, the Bulls WITH Rose and Noah would have to play nearly almost flawless against the Heat to beat them.

If Bosh is gone until the finals this will hurt them bad. This is just an NBA fan talking.
