The Miami Heat have shown a lot of weakness down low since Chris Bosh injured his abdomen in Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Ever since Game 4 against Indiana, the Heat have been on fire, taking over every game until Game 3 on Friday night, where they lost 101-91 to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Miami showed weakness down low and are really hoping to have Bosh in sometime in the series. However, you can rule him out for the upcoming Game 4, as the Heat announced he won't play in it.

Reports Michael Wallace of ESPN:

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Saturday that Bosh won't play Sunday and reiterated the All-Star forward has not yet advanced far enough in his recovery from an abdominal strain to gauge when he might be available for game action. 

"I'm not thinking about Chris today -- I'm not," Spoelstra said before the Heat's practice at TD Garden. "He's not on my mind. And I love you, Chris, but I'm focused on Sunday. That's where all of my energies are focused right now."

Miami currently leads the series, 2-1.
