Doctors are still awaiting the results of tests carried out on the Heat center on Thursday before they make their diagnosis, but widespread speculation suggests that they are fearing the worst.
The Miami Herald reported on Friday that the health concern will cause the 30-year-old to miss the rest of the season if it is indeed confirmed that he has a blood clot in his lung.
It is a particularly sensitive topic currently given that former Portland Trail Blazers star Jerome Kearsey died suddenly of a blood clot in his lung earlier this week.
The usual course of medication would involve limited physical activity for at least six months, but naturally at this stage the biggest concern for most is Bosh’s health away from basketball.
The former Toronto Raptors star was admitted to a Miami hospital on Thursday night after complaining of discomfort in his chest for several days while he had also developed flu-like symptoms according to reports.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra described him as “being under the weather” as his star player missed practice on Thursday, but he didn’t offer any further details into his status.
As expected, Bosh did not travel with his teammates to New York for Friday night’s game, and the Heat organisation as a whole will be hoping to get a clearer picture of his condition in the coming hours before deciding on the best course of treatment along with his family.
