Chris Bosh To Potentially Miss The Rest Of NBA Season With Bloodclots
Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said on Friday there is not a complete diagnosis on forward Chris Bosh’s health condition, but there is concern there is a blood clot in his lung, a person familiar with the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about Bosh’s health.
Spoelstra told reporters it’s not a life-threatening condition, and doctors are conducting more tests to determine exactly what is ailing 30-year-old Bosh.
Blood clots are serious, and if that’s the case with Bosh, he likely will miss the rest of the season as doctors treat him. Two seasons ago, Cleveland’s Anderson Varejao was diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung, and he missed the rest of the season. On Jan. 22, doctors discovered multiple blood clots in the lungs of Brooklyn’s Mirza Teletovic, and he was ruled out for the reason.
Varejao returned to the court, and Nets team doctor Michael Farber said he expect Teletovic to make a full recovery.
This is way bigger than a sports injury and could be potentially be life-threatening. We sincerely hope he recovers.
