Chris Bosh was sidelined for most of last season with a scary blood clot injury that forced him to watch his team just barely miss the playoffs due to his absence. Bosh is a star player that the Heat need on the floor every night in and night out. Now, Bosh may be sidelined with another blood clot related injury.
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald was the first to report the story:
The Heat was concerned on Monday about another potentially serious health situation involving Chris Bosh, multiple sources said.
Bosh missed Sunday’s All-Star game with a strained calf and returned to Miami for additional tests. A person in touch with the Heat’s front office said a worrisome problem surfaced Monday, beyond merely a strained calf. Another source said his life was not at risk.
Asked directly if Bosh had been diagnosed with a blood clot in his calf, agent Henry Thomas responded by text: “Too soon for all of that…. Too soon to report that.”
It is a scary time for Chris Bosh and his family. The last thing he wants to do is to have to go through another situation like this. The more injuries like this, the more career threatening it will be. Sadly, if Bosh is on blood thinners than he will most likely be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
It is too soon to say what the diagnosis is but prayers are definitely up for Bosh and his family!
