Chris Bosh Facing Blood Clot Scare
Chris Bosh might miss out on the NBA season over another potential health scare.
The Miami Heat star is reportedly facing another blood clot related issue that so far isn’t considered life threatening.
Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh’s season — and potentially his career — could be determined over the next several days.
Bosh, 31, missed Sunday’s All-Star Game with a calf strain, but it was later determined that the injury was related to another blood-clot issue, according to several reports. Bosh missed the final 30 games last season after blood clots were found in his lungs.
The 11-time All-Star will meet with doctors Thursday to determine the course of treatment, Yahoo! Sports reported early Tuesday morning. He was prescribed blood thinners last year and took them for seven months. Doctors are often hesitant to allow a patient on such medications to engage in sports where there is physical contact.
Bosh’s agent, Henry Thomas, told The Miami Herald that it was “too soon” to say that Bosh definitely has another blood clot. The newspaper said that the blood clot was not life-threatening.
The Associated Press, citing a a person with knowledge of the situation, reported Tuesday that Bosh had resumed taking blood thinners to treat a blood clot in his leg with hopes that he can resume playing this season.
Bosh was shut down at the All-Star break last season because a blood clot had found its way to his lungs.
Chris is currently awaiting the impending birth of his twins with his wife Adrienne.
Get well soon!
