The NBA tracks all medical issues and is interested in finding out whether Bosh and Teletovic succumbing to the same condition -- one that often results from lengthy sedentary periods, such as many hours on airplanes -- was a coincidence or a trend. And while two cases is hardly an epidemic, it's gotten the attention of executives, coaches, other players and basketball staff who spend much of their lives immobilized, 30,000 feet in the air.

Goran Dragic, who wanted a trade out of Phoenix, said he was thrilled to be in Miami. "They won three championship rings," he said, "and everyone wants to play for a championship team." Miami got the Dragics — Goran being a third-team All-NBA point guard last season, Zoran a rookie shooting guard — in what became a seven-player, three-team trade on Thursday. USA Today Sports

Bosh, who is receiving care under the guidance of Miami HEAT team physicians at a Baptist Health System Hospital, is currently resting comfortably. Chris is OK and his prognosis is good. NBA.com

In Utah, Kanter felt he wasn't receiving enough playing time, so he demanded a trade. In Oklahoma, Jackson felt his role diminished by the acquisition of Dion Waiters. Jackson longed to be a starter, in any case, with a paycheck to match. And in Phoenix, Dragic was simply unhappy. "When people don't want to be there, they can't produce," the team executive said. "If they didn't trade [Dragic], he wouldn't have played well for them." Bleacher Report

Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh remains hospitalized for what could be a possible blood clot in his lung, though Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra cautioned that Bosh’s illness is not life threatening and that it was still too early to tell what is causing him pain. “Frankly, there’s not a full diagnosis right now,” he said on Friday following the team's shootaround ahead of its game with the Knicks.

“He’s in great care right now in a South Miami hospital,” Spoelstra said. “It’s too early for an ultimate diagnosis. I know there’s a lot of speculation, a lot of rumors out there. He’s seeing a couple more specialists today and we’ll know more information either tonight or tomorrow. But he’s in great care and in good spirits right now.” New York Daily News
