Wade during Bosh's absence: 28.8 ppg, 3.8 apg & 4.8 rpg, 49.4% FGs.
Comparable: Chris Bosh has missed four games and counting due to a strained left calf in Miami
Gritty non-Bosh effort by Heat. Heat 55, Wizards 54 at half. Chalmers with 12, Deng with nine, Haslem with nine.
Heat clearly searching in power rotation in void of Bosh. Have used just about every permutation among Hamilton, Haslem, Andersen, Williams.
Still no injury update with Bosh. Spoelstra says there's no timetable for his return. Every other Heat player ready to go for tonight.
Bosh (calf) again out for Heat tonight (and, of course, Josh McRoberts, too). So looking like Wade, Cole, Deng and power rotation du jour.
Bosh (strained left calf) has been doing light exercise. Still no timetable for his return.
Bosh (calf) is a no-go tonight vs Washington.
Bosh remains out, according to Heat
As expected, Chris Bosh will not play tonight vs. Wizards.
Following on that last tweet, that's the only positive of Bosh's injury: Wade gets a sense of what his capabilities still are as #1 option.
Asked Jarrett Jack if Chris Bosh graduated too: "I think this degree will be for both of us. He can come visit it at my house."
It helps the Jazz that Chris Bosh (calf) will not play.
Spoelstra says Granger is questionable tonight vs Jazz. Bosh, McRoberts are out. Wade will play.
Spoelstra says Granger saw doctor today and will try to show up. Wade feels better and will go. McRoberts and Bosh out.
With Bosh and McRoberts Heat would post Wade and Deng and space with shooters. Now spacing with Haslem, Hamilton, Williams and Birdman
The Jazz and Heat will be a little different tonight. No Chris Bosh, who played very well against Utah last week at ESA
Nets trailing by 13 with eight minutes left to a Heat team without Bosh and McRoberts. Shouldn't be happening.
The Heat don’t have Chris Bosh, and are up 53-38 over the Nets in Barclays. (Nets without Lopez)
Heat play 4 of next 5 against bad teams, including tonight. They get UTA, BOS & PHI in Miami. As good a time as any for Bosh to be hurt.
No update on Bosh (strained calf). He's back in Miami.
With no Chris Bosh or Josh McRoberts and possibly no Dwyane Wade for Miami tonight, this is a game the Nets absolutely have to have.
Erik Spoelstra can't specify how long Bosh (calf) will be out. Can't even put a guess on it.
McRoberts might be out for the season with a torn meniscus, Bosh has a strained calf, Justin Hamilton is injured and Wade is still sick.
Heat announces significant knee injury will sideline McRoberts possibly for rest of season. Bosh out indefinitely.
Bosh (strained L calf) is out Tuesday vs Brooklyn & won't travel. Wade is ill and might not travel. Justin Hamilton (quad) is questionable.
Chris Bosh will not travel with the team today. He will continue to recuperate here in Miami.
Heat announce that Chris Bosh (calf) will not travel for game in Brooklyn.
Between the Bosh injury, McRoberts needing surgery and Wade's health issues, yeeesh
Heat right now in as bad a place as they've been in years. Bosh's injury status could determine playoff fate.
The Cole-Wade-Deng-McRoberts-Bosh lineup has been on the court 34 min. Bosh: "Awesome."
Chris Bosh said the Heat's training staff is going to be cautious so his calf muscle doesn't "tear away from the bone."
Sounds like Chris Bosh could be out a while. Called injury wear and tear.
I told Bosh that the projected starting lineup had played 34 minutes together this season. "Awesome."
Chris Bosh: "I don't know, there just seems to be a dark cloud over us right now."
