Chris Bosh, the all-star forward, will not be able to play this season. The Miami Heat has announced that one of Bosh’s lungs has blood clots in it. If not detected in time, he would have died as he had been complaining of pain for many days.
Dwayne Wade, the guard of the Miami Heat, said: “He was able to get in front of it early. That’s the good thing that helps all of us sleep at night.” Currently Bosh is in hospital, taking treatment from the team’s doctors. According to the Heat, “his prognosis is good.”
Erik Spoelstra, the head coach of the Miami Heat, said that Bosh is now recovering fast. He visited Bosh in hospital with Wade recently.
The absence of Bosh is the worst thing that could have happened to the Heat, which is currently hanging on to the seventh rank in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Spoelstra says that it is too early to talk about when Bosh can play again. He says that “the most important thing is he’ll be healthy again.”
Bosh, along with LeBron James, joined the Miami Heat in 2010. He averaged 7 rebounds and 21.1 points for the team this season. Bosh, James, and Wade played together for four seasons, the most glorious for the Heat. Last summer, James quit the Heat to join Cleveland.
This year has been very tough for the Heat, fraught with illness and injuries. Spoelstra said: “What you’re seeing now is a group that’s becoming more resilient every single day because of all these adversities.”
