Chris Bosh will be sidelined indefinitely because of a strained abdominal muscle, the Miami Heat announced Monday.
The Heat forward had an MRI exam that confirmed the injury, suffered during the 95-86 victory over Indiana in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday.
Bosh will probably be replaced in the lineup by former Laker Ronny Turiaf, but filling Bosh's shoes won't be easy, according to Heat guard Dwyane Wade.
"Our brother is going to go to see if he can get back out there and play with us,” Wade told the Associated Press on Sunday. “If not, then we've got to have someone step up very big."
