Bosh has high ankle sprain, could miss another week, more

Chris Bosh is not the best player on the Miami Heat. He may be the most indispensable — with Udonis Haslem out, the drop off among bigs after Bosh is dramatic. They have nobody else who comes close to bringing what Bosh brings to the table.

And Bosh is going to be out a little while longer.

He has missed the Heat’s last two games and could be out another week or two with what he told the Miami Herald was the dreaded high ankle sprain. But there is no real timeline, Bosh and coach Erik Spoelstra seem to be just playing it by ear. But when Spoelstra was asked if it could be a couple of weeks he didn’t shoot that idea down.

Next up for the Heat is the Knicks on Thursday night. That is a team where LeBron James could spend a lot of time at the four spot as the Heat go small, something the Knicks would not be able to exploit. It means more LeBron post-up game. But they will miss having Bosh to match up on Amar’e Stoudemire. After that come the Pistons, Thunder and Cavaliers on the schedule (Sunday against the Thunder the Heat really would miss Bosh’s length).

The injury took place when the Bulls’ Omer Asik fell into Bosh’s leg going for a loose ball 10 days ago. Because of having just one game over seven days, Bosh has not missed a lot of Heat games thus far, but the pace of the Heat schedule is about to change.

    Where’s MJD twitting when you need it? Why isnt anyone calling Bosh out for being a sissy for not playing on a sprained ankle? Its not like he plays a physical game…he stands outside and waits for LeWade to kick out to him for jumpers.

    “But they will miss having Bosh to match up on Amar’e Stoudemire.”

    No loss defensively. The Warden does a better job on him anyway.
