(BOSTON) — Miami Heat all-star forward Chris Bosh will not play in game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday.
Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said that the team is focusing the attention soley on game 4 without Bosh in the lineup and can do nothing but prepare for who they have on the bench to go to.
“I’m not thinking about Chris today — I’m not,” Spoelstra said before the Heat’s practice at TD Garden. “He’s not on my mind. And I love you, Chris, but I’m focused on Sunday. That’s where all of my energies are focused right now.”
Spoelstra also insisted that Bosh has not made any progress on his abdominal strain.
Miami will hope that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will continue to carry the load of the offense and get big contributions from it’s role players when asked.
