Latest On Chris Bosh

12:58pm: Bosh is taking blood-thinners and has hopes of playing again this season, Reynolds hears (Twitter link).

TUESDAY, 12:01am: Bosh is expected to meet with doctors on Thursday to determine the seriousness of the clotting in his left calf and whether blood thinners could allow him to return this season, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical on Yahoo Sports.

MONDAY, 10:46pm: Heat perennial All-Star power forward Chris Bosh may be dealing with another serious health situation, multiple sources told Barry Jackson and Ethan J. Skolnick of the Miami Herald. Bosh has a blood-clot scare, a source told the Associated Press’ Tim Reynolds, but Bosh’s season has not been declared over (Twitter link). Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops tweeted first that multiple sources had told him Bosh might have a serious issue.

Bosh missed Sunday’s All-Star game with a strained calf and returned to Miami for additional tests, according to Jackson. A person in contact with the Heat’s front office indicated a problem surfaced Monday beyond a strained calf.

Bosh sat out the second half of last season after potentially life-threatening blood clots were found  in his lungs but the current problem is not life threatening, a source told Jackson. Bosh’s agent, Henry Thomas, told Jackson via text that it’s “too soon” to declare that Bosh has a blood clot in his calf.

A blood clot would require Bosh to take blood thinners that would put him out of action indefinitely, the Herald story adds. Bosh was on blood thinners for seven months after being diagnosed with blood clots, according to Jackson.

If Bosh is sidelined, the Heat’s chances of making the playoffs would obviously be dealt a severe blow.  They have limited options at power forward and Chris Andersen and Josh McRoberts have been nagged by injuries much of the season. It could also alter their strategy heading into the trade deadline, where they might be more inclined to be sellers than buyers.

With my negative thought process, I thought it was a good possibility that he had another clot back when it was announced he pulled out of the ASG and 3 point shootout. The pieces just fit when we got more info about the calf. Get well CB. Regardless of everything else, that’s all that matters

I’ve been watching Bosh’s progress with great interest, because I too was diagnosed last year with small blood clots that had traveled up my left leg and into my left lung. Spent a day and a half in the hospital while they gave me intravenous blood thinning meds and am now on a daily regimen of Xarelto. I assumed that Bosh was still on Xarelto, since he’s now featured on their tv spots. I wonder why no one has mentioned whether or not he’s still using them. My doctor told me that it’s likely I’ll continue on it for an… Read more »

He hasn’t been on blood thinners for a good while, but he was on them for like 7 months originally. It’s dangerous to do so much physical activity while on blood thinners
