The Heat fear that the calf issue that caused Chris Bosh to miss the All-Star Game this weekend could be “another potentially serious health situation,” Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Bosh missed the game in Toronto with what was termed a calf strain. Bosh missed the final three months of last season with blood clots in his lungs, which were likely caused by a bruise on his calf suffered earlier in the season. Bosh opened up about the near-death experience to Sports Illustrated’s Lee Jenkins.
Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports that the fear is Bosh could have a recurrence of blood clots. Bosh’s agent told Jackson that it is too soon to tell whether the clots have returned.
Bosh, 31, has started all 53 of the Heat’s game this season. He is averaging a team-high 19.1 points per game, along with 7.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists.
