Jason Lieser

Wade during Bosh's absence: 28.8 ppg, 3.8 apg & 4.8 rpg, 49.4% FGs.

Ira Winderman

This time at least a competitive effort at home for the Heat, which says plenty about where they stand without Bosh. bit.ly/1zKypFu

Mike Mazzeo

Comparable: Chris Bosh has missed four games and counting due to a strained left calf in Miami

Ira Winderman

Gritty non-Bosh effort by Heat. Heat 55, Wizards 54 at half. Chalmers with 12, Deng with nine, Haslem with nine.

Ira Winderman

Heat clearly searching in power rotation in void of Bosh. Have used just about every permutation among Hamilton, Haslem, Andersen, Williams.

Joseph Goodman

#Wizards are the hottest team in the East and the #Heat is coming off a loss to the Jazz despite 42 from Wade. Bosh still out. Wizards by 6.

Surya Fernandez

Still no injury update with Bosh. Spoelstra says there's no timetable for his return. Every other Heat player ready to go for tonight.

Ira Winderman

Bosh (calf) again out for Heat tonight (and, of course, Josh McRoberts, too). So looking like Wade, Cole, Deng and power rotation du jour.

Jason Lieser

Bosh (strained left calf) has been doing light exercise. Still no timetable for his return.

Jason Lieser

Bosh (calf) is a no-go tonight vs Washington.

Barry Jackson

Bosh remains out, according to Heat

Shandel Richardson

As expected, Chris Bosh will not play tonight vs. Wizards.

Alex Kennedy

Darko Milicic may have been a bust, but did LeBron, Wade, Bosh or 'Melo ever become a KICKBOXER? NO: youtu.be/0OkMpyOxL-M (via @Ronnie2K)

Jason Jackson

#HEATLive postgame will be highlighted by @Chris Bosh playing #HotSecondsWithJax tonight … stay with us on @SunSportsHEAT

Ethan J. Skolnick

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.

Ira Winderman

With Bosh, McRoberts out, Birdman gets first start in Heat uniform. bit.ly/1Aex3CW

Ryan Wolstat

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."

Jody Genessy

It helps the Jazz that Chris Bosh (calf) will not play.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra says Granger is questionable tonight vs Jazz. Bosh, McRoberts are out. Wade will play.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Granger saw doctor today and will try to show up. Wade feels better and will go. McRoberts and Bosh out.

David Locke

With Bosh and McRoberts Heat would post Wade and Deng and space with shooters. Now spacing with Haslem, Hamilton, Williams and Birdman

Tony Jones

The Jazz and Heat will be a little different tonight. No Chris Bosh, who played very well against Utah last week at ESA

Ira Winderman

Winderman's View: Another sick effort for Wade, another shorthanded win for Heat, this time without Bosh, McRoberts. bit.ly/1sCM4O1

Tim Bontemps

Nets trailing by 13 with eight minutes left to a Heat team without Bosh and McRoberts. Shouldn't be happening.

Royce Young

The Heat don’t have Chris Bosh, and are up 53-38 over the Nets in Barclays. (Nets without Lopez)

Jason Lieser

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.

Jason Lieser

No update on Bosh (strained calf). He's back in Miami.

Tim Bontemps

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.

Mike Mazzeo

Wade, Granger and Hamilton are all questionable for the Heat tonight. Bosh and McRoberts are out. #Nets

Ira Winderman

Heat still uncertain how much time Bosh will miss. So Juwan practices, Udonis makes the best of it. bit.ly/1uVkIOy

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra can't specify how long Bosh (calf) will be out. Can't even put a guess on it.

Surya Fernandez

Miami Heat's Josh McRoberts may miss rest of season, Chris Bosh out indefinitely foxsports.com/florida/story/…

Joseph Goodman

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.

Darren Wolfson

Just saw that Bosh is likely out weeks, + McRoberts likely out for year. That 1st #TWolves moved for Thad (top-10 protected) will be nice.

Rod Boone

#Heat are hurting. Chris Bosh (calf) and Josh McRoberts (knee) are both out vs. #Nets tomorrow, Dwyane Wade (stomach virus) is questionable.

Barry Jackson

Heat announces significant knee injury will sideline McRoberts possibly for rest of season. Bosh out indefinitely.

Jason Lieser

Bosh (strained L calf) is out Tuesday vs Brooklyn & won't travel. Wade is ill and might not travel. Justin Hamilton (quad) is questionable.

Surya Fernandez

Chris Bosh will not travel with the team today. He will continue to recuperate here in Miami.

Ira Winderman

Heat announce that Chris Bosh (calf) will not travel for game in Brooklyn.

Chris Herring

Between the Bosh injury, McRoberts needing surgery and Wade's health issues, yeeesh

Ira Winderman

Heat right now in as bad a place as they've been in years. Bosh's injury status could determine playoff fate.

Jorge Sierra

Surya Fernandez

#Heat continue to feel the strain of the injury bug as Chris Bosh sits out foxsports.com/florida/story/… http://t.co/Md87Ts8MI4 via @SunSportsFOXFL

Jason Lieser

The Cole-Wade-Deng-McRoberts-Bosh lineup has been on the court 34 min. Bosh: "Awesome."

Joseph Goodman

Chris Bosh said the Heat's training staff is going to be cautious so his calf muscle doesn't "tear away from the bone."

Joseph Goodman

Sounds like Chris Bosh could be out a while. Called injury wear and tear.

Ethan J. Skolnick

I told Bosh that the projected starting lineup had played 34 minutes together this season. "Awesome."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Chris Bosh: "I don't know, there just seems to be a dark cloud over us right now."
