Dwyane Wade is hopeful about teammate Chris Bosh’s latest injury despite a scare that it could be “another potentially serious health situation,” according to Manny Navarro of The Miami Herald.
“He's fine,” Wade told reporters. “It's not the same health scare he was in last year.”
Wade clarified that he does not believe the scare is as serious as the blood clot in Bosh’s lungs that caused him to be hospitalized last season.
Bosh, 31, missed the All-Star 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.
Bosh 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.
“He will be with us shortly,” head coach Erik Spolestra also told reporters.
