New Blood Clot Scare for Miami Heat Star Chris Bosh
Miami Heat star Chris Bosh may be sidelined for the rest of the 2015-16 NBA season with blood clots again.
According to published reports, Bosh, 31, pulled out of the 2016 NBA All-Star game in Toronto after suffering a slight calf sprain.
Calf pain is a classic symptom of deep vein thrombosis, a life-threatening condition which can cause blood clots that break off and travel to the lung.
Bosh hung around the All-Star events in Toronto this past weekend before returning to Miami for diagnostic tests.
“The biggest thing is his health,” Heat teammate Dwyane Wadetold the Associated Press on Saturday in Toronto. “All in all, as I said last year, it’s bigger than basketball. It’s about his family and he has to make sure he does everything right. I want to make sure that he’s doing whatever he needs to do to be healthy and get back on the basketball court whenever he’s ready.”
The 6′ 11″ center was previously hospitalized in February 2015 with pulmonary emboli (blood clots) in his lungs. Ironically, he was diagnosed with PE following the 2015 NBA All-Star game in New York last February.
Bosh and his wife Adrienne, 30, are expecting twins sons. They have 2 children; a girl named Dylan Skye, 2, and a boy named Jackson Bosh, 3. Chris Bosh also has a daughter named Trinity, 7, from a previous relationship.
It is a blood-clot scare for Chris Bosh, source tells AP. Source also insists that Bosh's season has not been declared over.
