It was a frightening diagnosis Chris Bosh faced — blood clots on the lungs. That can be life threatening.
Bosh was hospitalized in Miami and put on a blood thinners treatment that will keep him out of the NBA for the rest of this season (leaving the Heat in the hands of Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic). The good news is he has been released from the hospital, something the Heat announced, reports the Associated Press.
“That was his first goal,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He’s been very anxious to get out of there. It was driving him nuts.”
Bosh will still be monitored closely still, but we’d all rather recover at home as opposed to in a hospital.
Bosh had earned a spot in the All-Star Game in Miami and after that was vacationing for a few days with Wade when he was struck with pain. That is when the blood clots were found by doctors.
It is possible Bosh will miss more than this season, the Heat are not giving a timetable for his return. Nor should they. This is far more important than basketball and he needs to get right.
