Heat to make determination on Bosh

HANG TIME NEW JERSEY — For the second straight year, Chris Bosh‘s season could be over two months early.

Bosh is once again dealing with a blood clot issue, the same thing that ended his season after the All-Star break last year. He has missed the Miami Heat’s first three post-break games and could be done for the year.

Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Bosh will meet with the Heat on Wednesday to determine how to approach the next two months

Miami Heat All-Star forward Chris Bosh is under increasing pressure from physicians and the organization to sit out the rest of the season because of the potential dangers of a recurring medical condition, league sources told The Vertical.

After a blood clot in his calf moved to his lungs in 2015, Bosh missed the final 30 games of the season. He took blood thinners for several months following the 2015 clotting.

Bosh has a meeting planned with Heat officials, including owner Mickey Arison and president Pat Riley, in the next 24 hours to move closer to a final determination on his status, league sources said.

The Heat are 3-0 since the break, winning two of the games without Bosh or Dwyane Wade. That has pushed them to third place in the Eastern Conference, with a relatively easy schedule down the stretch. After hosting the Golden State Warriors and visiting the Boston Celtics this week, they’ll play 15 of their final 24 games against teams currently below .500.

Bosh has been an improved shooter this season, especially at the basket. He’s also registered the highest assist ratio and lowest turnover ratio of his career.

    I’m a heat fan I think Chris should hang em up health and family first or least take year off to see if some thing can be done if not then retired and enjoy the rest of your life! He made a lot of money and a 2 time nab champion!

    I think the decision will favour both sides,bosh himself and management. But his health should be a priority…All the best Chris

    quit the game,invest your money wisely,you are a very good player and we all love you,please dont die on bball court

    Even though I don’t know the details of his condition, as a physician, I suspect that he will need to be on a blood thinner for life, not just this year, to prevent more clots. He and his doctors will have to decide if it is safe for him to be playing bball while taking the blood thinner. I would advise against it given the risks of serious bleeding. I would not be surprised if Bosh calls it quits.

    What’s the cause of the blood clotting that Chris Bosh is experiencing?

    Bosh should just stay at home with his family until he is 110% cleared of any further blood clot complications. It’s so unfortunate seeing such a talented player like him going down for the 2nd straight season, but life goes on. Enjoy the time you’re not treating yourself with your family and loved ones, don’t rush any health procedures as they WILL end up coming back to haunt you.

    I know he won’t ever read this, but I just hope others will agree/comment further to what I think he SHOULD do.

    Im a heat fan also, Chris better take a one year rest to fully recover from the ailment. You can do it

    Get well soon Brother ! You had proven your self on those rings.. Enjoy our family man!

  12. The news to me is more devastating to Bosh as a dad, husband, sibling and son, than a basketball player, who can and will be replaced. Best wishes.

    LIFE IS SHORT LISTEN TO WHAT THE PHYSICIANS SAY ,WISHING YOU THE VERY BEST.
    MIAMI FOR LIFE.

    Mr. Bosh,

    Magic was a 5 time NBA champion, but arguably, he has been a much more successful businessman. Basketball is just 1 of your talents. Don’t let it define you and make you miss the rest of your blessings. You are young, a multimillionaire, fluent in another language, just to begin. If this season is over, don’t stay too long and miss the rest of your seasons! Life is more than just entertaining my brother.

  15. Alex Rud says:

    Sad to hear but their season is done. I hope Bosh recovers fully and is able to end his prime years well

    Bosh, you have accomplish what some of the others players looking for is that GLORY DAY of playing in the championship and winning that ring. With young kids and a wife enjoy life with them not us the fans. LOVE YOU BROTHER
