He was pressed as to why he played through it rather than let the Heat’s training staff know about the issue. “I know, I’ll never do it again,” Bosh said. “It sounds crazy, doesn’t it? I wish I could go back and tell myself not to do those things, but I’m lucky to be alive. I am. I took that as a lesson to stop trying to be a tough guy all the time. That’s kinda how we’re trained, to just suck it up and throw some dirt on it and get back out there.

Yes, he said, he remains intrigued about playing alongside Chris Bosh, who was declared out for the season with blood clots on his lung two days after Dragic was acquired from the Phoenix Suns at the NBA trading deadline. “Definitely, it would be easier than now,” Dragic said of this uneven playoff quest. “He’s a fantastic player. We would have one more option in the offense, and you know that you can count on him.”
Bosh was off the bench and halfway down the court after Wade’s impossible floater to tie the score with 41 seconds to play, and again when Wade knocked down that 15-foot fadeaway jumper to give the Heat the lead with 13.6 seconds left. “For me, it just gives me joy to see him over there, and me and him have a lot of laughs and conversations throughout the game,” Wade said. “Just knowing everything that happened and how scared we were, seeing him out there and celebrating and cheering with us, that gives you something extra.” Wade has been playing with a little something extra this week, scoring 32 points in back-to-back games. He was 13 of 18 from the field on Monday in the Heat’s victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he shot 13 of 26 against the Trail Blazers.

The current list of sidelined NBA stars is sobering—Derrick Rose, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Paul George, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Steve Nash—but it is not the worst season on record. Not even close, according to Jeff Stotts, who tracks injury trends on his website, InStreetClothes.com. Stotts’ data indicates that this season will, in fact, end up falling below the average for the last 10 seasons. Through the 60-game mark, NBA teams had lost 3,165 player-games to injury, putting the league on pace for 4,326 games lost this season. That’s below the 10-year average of 4,577 and well short of last season’s mark of 4,989 games lost.
In another encouraging step, the Heat said that Bosh is scheduled to resume “full basketball activities” in September, which would indicate that he expects to be able to play when training camp for the 2015-16 season starts. Bosh will be evaluated later this month and if cleared, “may begin regular exercise with plans to start strength training next month,” the team said. The Heat released the statement from team thoracic surgeon John DeRosimo and team cardiologist Ed Neff. “I knew I was going to play basketball again,” Bosh said during a brief news conference, his first public comments since he was diagnosed with blood clots on one of his lungs last month — a condition that the 10-time All-Star estimates he played with for about three weeks before finding out why he was in such pain.
