Chris Bosh says whether he starts for the Miami Heat is irrelevant.

The Heat power forward is indicating that he will not be in the starting lineup for Miami when it plays host to the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night.

Bosh has played in each of Miami's last two games since returning from a strained lower abdominal muscle. Bosh came off the bench in both the Game 5 loss and the Game 6 victory.

Saturday is his first taste of a Game 7. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Bosh may get more minutes than the 28 he played in Boston on Thursday night.
