Chris Bosh returns after tweaking back
The defending champs are trying to three-peat. The Heat Index.
Bosh went to the locker room because of back spasms in the first quarter against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. He returned in the second quarter.
Bosh landed awkwardly after grabbing a rebound and limped off the court holding his left hip. He was replaced by Juwan Howard.
Bosh's injury is only the latest for the Heat.
Udonis Haslem's season might be over after surgery this week to repair a torn ligament in his left foot, Mike Miller isn't expected back until after Christmas because of a broken thumb and ligament damage, Dwyane Wade has been playing through a sprained left wrist, and LeBron James has been dealing with a shin problem for a couple weeks.
