Report: Chris Bosh could have blood clots on his lungs, miss rest of season

Chris Bosh was hospitalized and underwent tests on his lungs yesterday.

This is not an ideal development.

Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald:

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.

Although it’s clear nothing is confirmed, Goodman broke the initial news about the tests. He’s clearly plugged into the situation, and I doubt the Herald would publish this story if the concerns were unfounded.

Still, nothing has been stated conclusively. I’m still holding out hope Bosh avoids a major health concern.
