Chris Bosh still not ready to return

It looks like the Heat are going to have a lot more opportunities to roll out their smaller lineups over the next week.  After practice today, Erik Spoelstra made it clear that Chris Bosh was nowhere near ready to return and in all likelihood would miss the Heat's 4 games in 5 nights marathon coming up later this week.  Said Spo:

"He's just doing all of his treatment, all the work that he can to try to get him feeling more comfortable and closer to 100 percent.  I don't have a timetable for him.  All I can tell you is he's getting better, but he's not ready to run full speed and certainly not read to practice"

After they practice tomorrow at the AAA, the Heat head to New York to start the 4-in-5 and wont have a full practice until sometime next week, probably Wednesday the 2nd.  All we can hope for is that Bosh uses the time to heal up and is ready to return at that time, but there is no need to rush him.  As long as he is back and at full strength in time for the playoffs, that's the most important thing.
