Bosh, who suffered an abdominal strain in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Indiana Pacers on May 14, has been listed out "indefinitely" with the injury.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters on Saturday that Bosh's status has not changed.
"No update from before," Spoelstra said, according to the Sun-Sentinel. "He's doing a little bit more. It's still indefinite. ... For me, it's my responsibility right now to prepare this team without him."
Earlier this week, Bosh spoke hopefully about a postseason return.
"I'm just hoping that everyone can keep doing what they're doing and extend the season," Bosh said on Wednesday, according to ESPN.com. "I do have a chance to play again. That's the light at the end of the tunnel for me. That keeps me going every day."
ESPN.com reported Saturday that Bosh was "still a ways away from" resuming basketball activities although he was able to ride on a stationary bicycle.
The Heat will face either the Boston Celtics or the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference Finals. The two teams are playing Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series on Saturday.
Bosh, 28, averaged 18.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game for the Heat this season. He appeared in 57 of Miami's 66 regular-season games.
