HoopsHype Chris Bosh rumors


February 20, 2015 Updates

Bosh was admitted to a Miami-area hospital Thursday after meeting with a doctor. The Heat’s power forward underwent initial tests that proved inconclusive, according to the Heat. The fear is that Bosh could have blood clots on his lungs. If there is a pulmonary embolus, or multiple clots, then Bosh would be out for the remainder of the season, and possibly longer, while being treated with blood thinners for pulmonary embolism.

Heat power forward Chris Bosh was admitted to a Miami-area hospital Thursday to undergo testing, according to the team. Bosh was “under the weather” on Wednesday when he reported to practice, according to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, and team trainers sent Bosh to see a doctor. He did not attend practice Thursday and was instead admitted to the hospital. Miami Herald

Asked on Thursday after practice whether Bosh was sick in Haiti, Wade said, “I don’t know if he was sick. I’m not a doctor. I just know he wasn’t feeling good. He wasn’t coughing or throwing up, but he just wasn’t feeling good. So I don’t know when it happened. It could have happened in New York.” Although Bosh noted discomfort in his side last Friday, he appeared healthy. On Saturday, he won the All-Star Shooting Stars competition at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, and on Sunday, Bosh played 11 minutes in the All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden. Miami Herald

Marc J. Spears: Everyone other than Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh & Hassan Whiteside available from the Heat, a source said. The times have changed for Whiteside. Hassan Whiteside can't be traded since he's within three months of signing his contract, but the Heat wouldn't move diamond in rough anyway. Twitter @SpearsNBAYahoo

With his All-Star obligations complete, Bosh now has five days to rest some nagging aches, including a persistent pain in his side. Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard revealed over the weekend that Bosh was playing through an injury before the All-Star break, and although Bosh downplayed the news while in New York, there’s little question something has been affecting his jump shot over the past two weeks. “Your body will follow your mind, and sometimes it’s good to get away,” Bosh said. “You have to give credit to the commissioner and the players for coming together and actually making it a longer break, but sometimes you just have to reset. “If things are going well, or if things aren’t going well, you have to let your body rest, you have to take advantage of the time, and when you’re stuck in the brain sometimes you have to step away from the game, and that’s when you get the most ideas.” Miami Herald

Chris Bosh will once again be paired with NBA Legend Dominique Wilkins and WNBA player Swin Cash as they look to become the first three-peat Shooting Stars champions after winning the event the previous two years, once during the 2012 competition in Houston and then again during the 2013 event in New Orleans. Bosh, a 10-time NBA All-Star, has appeared in 41 games (all starts) with the HEAT this season averaging 21.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 35.3 minutes. He leads the team in points (867) and rebounds (299) this season and scored the 16,000th point of his career on January 25 at Chicago and grabbed his 7,000th career rebound on November 22 at Orlando. He connected on at least one three-point field goal in a career-high 10 consecutive games from November 16 through December 5 and has already totaled six 30-point games this season after doing so two times all of last year.
