Chris Bosh hopes to play this season thanks to blood-thinners, report says

Heat All-Star Chris Bosh will continue to take blood-thinners and try to return to the court this season, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Bosh is dealing with complications from another blood clot in his leg, which cost him the entire second half of last season. But this news is more encouraging, even if details remai

n vague.

Bosh, 31, was unable to play in Sunday’s All-Star Game in Toronto because of pain in his calf. He suffered blood clots in his lungs last season, a much more serious issue that also began with an apparent calf injury, ending his season at the break.

The NBA’s grueling travel schedule could be a factor in Bosh’s treatment. Flying is considered somewhat risky for people with blood-clot issues in their legs.
