Heat's Chris Bosh to miss rest of season with blood clots on his lung
Sunday February 22nd, 2015

Miami Heat star Chris Bosh shared a photo from the hospital along with a message expressing gratitude for support on his Instagram page Saturday night. Bosh was ruled out for the season on Saturday after blood clots were found on his lung.

"Thank you for all the messages, love, and support," Bosh said in the post. "It has truly lifted my spirits through this tough process. #Heatnation #Iwillbebacksoon #Boshfamily"

Bosh competed in All-Star Weekend in New York City last week, winning the Shooting Stars competition along with Dominique Wilkins and Swin Cash before playing in the All-Star Game on Sunday. Bosh scored 10 points and grabbed three rebounds for the Eastern Conference, and then left for a brief vacation to Haiti earlier this week. He first checked into a hospital on Wednesday.

Bosh's diagnosis was met with an outpouring of support from all corners of the NBA. His former teammate, Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, wrote the following on Twitter: 

James' first tweet references former NBA player Jerome Kersey, who died Wednesday.
