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.
Wish I could be there by your side this very moment to tell a joke or something homie. Just to get your mind off what you're going through!— LeBron James (@KingJames) February 20, 2015
James' first tweet references former NBA player Jerome Kersey, who died Wednesday.
