    Default Chris Bosh out the rest of the season?

    This doesn't sound good.

    The Heat could announce Friday whether Chris Bosh will be forced to miss the remainder of the season following tests on his lungs.

    Bosh was admitted to a Miami-area hospital Thursday after meeting with a doctor. The Heat’s power forward underwent initial tests that proved inconclusive, according to the Heat. The fear is that Bosh could have blood clots on his lungs. If there is a pulmonary embolus, or multiple clots, then Bosh would be out for the remainder of the season, and possibly longer, while being treated with blood thinners for pulmonary embolism.

    A 10-time All-Star and two-time champion for the Heat, Bosh signed a guaranteed five-year contract in July for $118 million. The contract currently is the largest guaranteed deal in the NBA. With a 22-30 record, the Heat (22-30) is in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings with 30 games remaining in the regular season. The Heat plays the 10-win New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Madison Square Garden.

    The game in New York, Dwyane Wade’s first since Jan. 27 because of a strained right hamstring, could be overshadowed by news of Bosh’s medical condition. Bosh, 30, hasn’t felt well since earlier in the All-Star break, according Wade, who traveled to Haiti with Bosh on Monday during Carnival. Bosh and Wade were also together in New York for the All-Star Game.

    Concerns for Bosh’s health have tempered excitement throughout the team and front office after Heat president Pat Riley and general manager Andy Elisburg traded for Phoenix Suns point guard Goran Dragic on Thursday afternoon. The Heat dealt guard Norris Cole, forwards Shawne Williams and Danny Granger, center Justin Hamilton and two future first-round picks for Goran Dragic, 28, and his brother Zoran, 25.

    Ouch. And didn't they just make a rather aggressive move to add a point guard for the stretch and playoffs? I suppose this could be crippling.

    But Idon't follow the heat. But my son is a fan so interested in impacts.
