The basketball season likely is over for Chris Bosh. There is a serious concern by the Miami Heat that its All-Star power forward, the bedrock foundation of the team, will miss the remainder of the season to treat blood clots in his lungs. Bosh checked into a Miami-area hospital after missing practice Wednesday and meeting with a doctor Thursday, according to the team. Clotting was confirmed, the Miami Herald learned, and more tests were run Friday to further diagnose the condition. “The health of your players, that’s my biggest concern, and that’s my biggest thought last night and tonight,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Friday. “Is C.B. OK? Is his family OK?” The good news is that Bosh’s wife, Adrienne, said Friday that her husband was “doing OK.” The bad news is that blood clots are treated with blood thinners, which likely rules Bosh out medically for several months, perhaps longer.
