Report: Chris Bosh Likely to Be Activated for Game 5 Against Celtics


Report: Chris Bosh Likely to Be Activated for Game 5 Against CelticsThe Heat may finally have the third member of their Big Three against the Celtics.

Miami is hoping to activate Chris Bosh for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals if he doesn't suffer any setbacks in his workouts leading up to Tuesday's game, according to

Bosh declined to discuss his status following the Celtics' Game 4 victory, but a return would be a major boost for the Heat, who have lost the last two games in the series. Even if Bosh can't play a ton of minutes upon his return, which is likely, he could be a valuable contributor, especially considering the revolving door at the center position in his absence.

Bosh hasn't played since May 13 because of an abdominal strain that he suffered in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Pacers. He's missed nine playoff games altogether.

The Heat did not place a timetable on Bosh's return, but they were reportedly believed to have been targeting a three-week window.
