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 ESPN.com.

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.
