Miami Heat superstar, Chris Bosh was forced to pull out of the NBA All Star game over the weekend due to what appeared to be a strained calf. But it turns out, the medical emergency is much more serious and could be career ending.
According to reports, Bosh’s absence from the game could be because of yet another blood-clot issue. You might remember, last season, the father of three missed dozens of games after doctors found blood clots in his lungs.
According to The Vertical, the athlete is expected to see a doctor this week “to determine the seriousness of blood clotting in his left calf and whether the use of blood thinners could allow him to return this season.” But while reports are circulating that Chris has indeed been struck with another serious ailment, his agent is claiming that it’s just too soon to tell. “Too soon for all of that,” Henry Thomas told the Miami Herald. “Too soon to report that.”
Bosh also seems hopeful that his injury is not related to a blood clot. “As an athlete, we try to keep going with some things, treating it,” Bosh said Saturday. “But it just lingered. And I didn’t feel it was wise to continue to push it, especially with this elongated week that we have off. I just wanted to make sure I was taking the necessary precautions and being a good professional.”
We wish the baller a speedy recovery.
