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.

The most encouraging facets of Andrew Bynum's debut with the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night couldn't be found in a box score that showed the 7-footer logged eight points and 10 rebounds in only 15½ minutes against the Boston Celtics. What should make the Pacers feel even more optimistic about Bynum is the fact that he didn't obliterate his team's legendary chemistry nor did he experience a recurrence of the knee soreness that has made him one of the NBA's biggest busts over much of the last two years.

Drake, we get it. Everywhere you go, lines part and doors open. Traffic lights probably even know to turn green when you're approaching.  There's one place, though, where your celebrity won't work: An NBA locker room. After the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, Drake wanted in on the party. Thing is, reporters are on this very evil thing called "deadline," so athlete-rapper social hour is not encouraged. The security guard at the locker room door succinctly broke it down for Drake: "There's no access," he said.

You have to think that Miami Heat star LeBron James, if only for a moment, wished he was still wearing his protective mask during Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls. James, who broke his nose two weeks ago, got tangled up with Chicago's Jimmy Butler during the game. As each man fell to the ground, Butler's foot swung around and hit James in the side of his head. They sort of wrestled with each other while getting up and both were given a technical foul. The Bulls defeated the Heat, 95-88, in overtime.

The Lakers may play host to the Miami Heat on Christmas Day, according to a report from Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel . Winderman cites a "nearly completed draft of the 2013-14 NBA schedule," which was sent to teams and league broadcast partners. The NBA traditionally makes its ABC debut on Christmas with a slate of high-profile games.  While an obvious game would be Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets visiting the Lakers, it appears the Heat will be their guest instead.

With the Lakers' roster changes pretty much finalized, it's safe now to envision how the team will fare heading into the 2012-13 season. Sure, the Lakers will have to narrow their 14-man roster during training camp, and no one knows what deals leading into the trade deadline could change the NBA landscape. But in the spirit of seeing how things have evolved for the Lakers since the 2012 NBA playoffs ended, this is one in a series breaking down potentially troublesome opponents. Team: Miami Heat Lakers' record vs. Heat: 1-1 in the regular season How the Heat fared last season : Finished second in the Eastern Conference behind the Chicago Bulls with a 46-20 record.

Chris Andersen has been cleared of any wrongdoing as part of an investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children unit of the Douglas County (Colo.) Sheriff's Department, both his lawyer and prosecutors have confirmed. The colorfully tattooed forward for the Miami Heat was the victim of a wide-ranging Internet hoax, known as catfishing, in which a woman in Canada apparently impersonated him while seeking a relationship and gifts from and later threatening a female acquaintance of the player.

MIAMI AT CHICAGO Saturday at 5 p.m. TV: NBA TV. In a welcome development, the attention the Heat gets now is for stuff that happens on the court, as opposed to conspiracy theories and dumb TV specials. This will be the fifth game of a five-game trip that began with Friday's win in Milwaukee and will take them to the West Coast and back... with the big question being whether anyone can beat them on the way. They're 20-1 since starting 9-8 when Coach Erik Spoelstra seemed to be dangling, including their Christmas rout of the Lakers.

Writers from around the Tribune Co. discuss whether Miami Heat President Pat Riley should bring back the core players from his two-time reigning NBA champion team. Feel free to join the conversation by leaving a comment of your own. Ben Bolch, Los Angeles Times As tempting as it might be to make a significant roster move with the rest of the NBA closing in on the Heat, it would also be a public relations nightmare and a touch disingenuous to break up the core of the team before it proves that it can't win another NBA title.

To tackle some questions regarding the Lakers' 2012-13 season, I talked with TNT NBA analyst Kenny Smith, who has been recently promoting the video game, NBA Baller Beats . This is the first in a two-part interview with Smith. The Lakers' off-season signings have been huge with the acquisitions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, the signings of Antawn Jamison and Jodie Meeks and the re-signing Jordan Hill and Devin Ebanks. With these moves, how do the Lakers stand relative to the rest of the league?

I hadn't really heard of him before last night, but this LeBron James guy who plays for the Miami Heat seems to have a promising NBA future. James scored 61 points for the Heat in its 127-104 rout of the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday. Maybe it was his mask? Can I work in a "Who was that masked man" reference? Too obvious? You can watch how LeBron scored his points in the video above. ALSO: Where's Waldo?

After four of his starters played over 40 minutes Wednesday night in their 116-112 loss against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers gave his team the day off Thursday. Jamal Crawford, starting at shooting guard in place of J.J. Redick (sore right hip) and also playing some backup point guard, played a team-high 46 minutes 38 seconds. Crawford finished with 31 points and six assists against the Heat. Blake Griffin logged 42:17 while scoring a season-high 43 points and having to defend LeBron James at times.

If Jamal Crawford has to start again at shooting guard in place of the injured J.J. Redick (sore right hip), the Clippers can feel confident that they are in good hands. Redick missed Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat and he's listed as day-to-day. The Clippers play the Toronto Raptors on Friday night at Staples Center. Crawford started against the Heat and had 31 points on nine-for-21 shooting, including five-for-11 on three-pointers. Because of the team's lack of depth in the backcourt, Crawford was forced to play 46 minutes 38 seconds against the Heat.

Shaquille O'Neal said the Lakers would have won five titles had he stayed with Kobe Bryant. "Probably five," O'Neal said Thursday on TNT's "Inside Stuff. " "I'm going to go with five or six. " O'Neal won three titles with Bryant and the Lakers in four trips to the NBA Finals. The Lakers traded him to the Miami Heat in 2004. Bryant and O'Neal had a fractured relationship but the former Laker said that wasn't the reason why he left the team. "We didn't have a bad relationship, because we won three out of four championships," O'Neal said.

  Clippers Coach Doc Rivers couldn't complain about his team's effort Wednesday night, not when he had Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison and Matt Barnes all playing 37 or more grueling minutes. Rivers didn't like that his team turned the ball over 20 times and that the Clippers' defense came and went at times, leaving him to live with Los Angeles' 116-112 defeat to the Miami Heat at Staples Center. Rivers' team was down by as many as 19 points in the second quarter and by 17 in the third but made a game of it by getting to within two points late before losing.

The Miami Heat challenged the Lakers' NBA record of 33 straight wins, but fell short in March with 27. On Wednesday, Jeanie Buss, part-owner and executive of the Lakers, reached out to the Washington Kastles of World TeamTennis for their 34th consecutive victory. "Winning 33 consecutive games was an amazing accomplishment by our 1971-72 Lakers team, as evidenced by the fact that no other team has come close to reaching it for over 40 years now," Buss said. "On behalf of the Buss family and the Lakers family, I want to congratulate the Washington Kastles, their players, and our good friends Billie Jean King and Ilana Kloss on this milestone accomplishment of theirs.

He may be the most hated man in Cleveland, but LeBron James triumphed again Thursday night, on the court and in the TV-ratings books. "King James" captured an MVP trophy while leading the Miami Heat to the NBA championship with a Game 7 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The game delivered a 17.7 overnight rating for ABC, making it the second-highest-rated NBA game ever on the network.

Finally, the Clippers are back playing at home at Staples Center for a while. The bad news is that is that they start their five-game homestand Wednesday night against the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat and LeBron James. The Clippers will be playing just their third game at home out of their last 12 games. They have lost two of their last three games but have defeated the Heat five times in a row in Los Angeles. The Clippers have played well at home, having won their last seven games at Staples Center and are 20-3 there this season.
