MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Heat say Chris Bosh will be sidelined indefinitely because of a strained abdominal muscle.
An MRI exam performed Monday confirmed the diagnosis.
Bosh was hurt late in the first half of the Heat’s 95-86 victory over Indiana on Sunday in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Game 2 of the series is Tuesday night.
Bosh’s minutes will likely be filled by Joel Anthony and Ronny Turiaf, both of whom played extended stretches Sunday after Bosh departed.
