MIAMI, FL - Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh could play Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against Boston on Tuesday.

Bosh has been sidelined since Game 1 of the East semifinals against Indiana because of a strained lower abdominal muscle.

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said Monday that Bosh was making "significant progress" and after Tuesday's shootaround indicated that a decision would come before the start of Game 5.

"He is a game-time decision. We'll know tonight," Spoelstra stated.

The Heat and Celtics will enter Game 5 of the best-of-seven series tied at two wins apiece. Each has won twice at home.

In six playoff games, Bosh has averaged 14.7 points and 6.8 rebounds. He averaged 18.0 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 57 regular-season games.
