Chris Bosh Could Miss Rest Of Season With Blood Clots in Lungs



Chris Bosh had medical tests yesterday on his lungs, and the result was not what Miami fans wanted to hear.

Joesph Goodman of the Miami Herald was first to report the situation: 

“The Heat could announce Friday whether Chris Bosh will be forced to miss the remainder of the season following tests on his lungs. Bosh was admitted to a Miami-area hospital Thursday after meeting with a doctor. The Heat’s power forward underwent initial tests that proved inconclusive, according to the Heat. The fear is that Bosh could have blood clots on his lungs. If there is a pulmonary embolus, or multiple clots, then Bosh would be out for the remainder of the season, and possibly longer, while being treated with blood thinners for pulmonary embolism.”

Nothing has been confirmed by Miami Heat officials, but it seems likely that Bosh will be missing the remainder of the season. This is a huge blow to the Heat, as they are coming of a blockbuster trade that landed them Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic. Miami felt that this trade may put them over the edge, but with Bosh out they are losing a big contributor and scorer inside. Bosh was averaging 21 points and 7 rebounds a game for the Heat this season.

We at Basketball Society want to wish Bosh a speedy and healthy recovery as he deals with this truly scary situation.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, Bosh’s former teammate, tweeted out some thought’s regarding Bosh’s ailment on Friday morning:
