”It was encouraging this past week,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. ”He’s able to do some more activity on the court. The last two days he’s been able to do real basketball work.”
Bosh has been out of action because of an abdominal injury that threatened to ended his season early in the playoffs.
However, he has been showing good signs recently and his teammate and the league’s MVP LeBron James, is excited about his progress.
”He’s looked great the last couple days that we’ve gotten to see him,” James said. ”He looks comfortable with what we’ve been able to do.
“But I think we all know that a shootaround or a walk-through practice is totally different than game time.”
The Miami Heat took a 2-0 lead in the series, but the Boston rallied with two hard fought wins to even the series at 2-2.
Game 5 will be here at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.
