If the clot issue is confirmed, Bosh potentially could miss the remainder of the season. "In terms of all the rumors and speculation, we're aware of all the things that are out there," Spoelstra said in New York, where the Heat will play the Knicks on Friday night. "Everybody's jumping the gun right now. I know there's a lot out there. "Frankly, there's not a full diagnosis right now. So for everybody to speculate, right now at this stage it's very premature."

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.

One of the larger questions surrounding the NBA D-League Showcase on day 2 was not who the next Call-Up will be, but why Bill Walker changed his name to Henry Walker? Well, DleagueDigest.com asked Walker about the change, and the laid back former NBA player commented, “It’s just about growing up, I never liked the name Billy and everybody called me that. My Mom even wondered why everyone called me Billy. I just wanted to get out it. I’m growing up and getting older, and I just felt like it was time to drop that name.” D-League Digest
