Chris Bosh (blood clots) remains hospitalized.

Bosh is in good spirits and is continuing the recovery process, and that's all that matters. Bosh will not return this season, but the only thing we're focused on is ensuring he gets back to full health.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The Heat announced Chris Bosh will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season while being treated for blood clots in his lung.

"Bosh, who is receiving care under the guidance of Miami HEAT team physicians at a Baptist Health System Hospital, is currently resting comfortably," the announcement said. "Chris is OK and his prognosis is good." While we'll certainly miss watching Bosh play, the best part here is the positive prognosis and it looks like he'll be on the road to recovery. The Heat will continue to start Udonis Haslem in his place while Luol Deng will also slide over to the four as the game goes on. Deng moving over to the four on occasion should open up some run for James Ennis and maybe Tyler Johnson. Additionally, the team could sign Andray Blatche soon, who averaged 31.1 points, 14.6 boards, 5.1 assists, 0.9 steals and 2.8 steals in 38 games with Xinjiang in China this season.

Chris Bosh's wife, Adrienne, said Chris is "doing OK."

"We appreciate all the Love and Support we have received from our Friends, Family and Fans," Adrienne Bosh wrote on Twitter. While Bosh is an All-Star basketball player, he's still a family man and a great person in the community. We're happy to hear he's doing OK right now.

Updating a previous report, Chris Bosh has been diagnosed with a blood clot in both of his lungs.

While head coach Erik Spoelstra said everyone is "jumping the gun," and that a full diagnosis has yet to be completed, this updated diagnosis is actually worse than the initial one. It seems very likely that Bosh will miss the remainder of the season, but owners should probably wait for official word from Miami's side before sending him to the waiver wire. If there's one positive thing about this situation, it's that Bosh's ailment isn't believed to be life threatening. Stay tuned.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Friday that everyone is "jumping the gun" on Chris Bosh's blood clot (lung) and that a full diagnosis has yet to be completed.

While this might be true, it still appears that Bosh's season is very likely over. However, until the Heat release details on Bosh's status, owners should probably just hold on and see what happens. If you remember, LaMarcus Aldridge was ruled out for the Blazers, and then decided to put off surgery and is still playing at a very high level. While we don't expect that to be the case with Bosh, you just never know.

Chris Bosh has reportedly been diagnosed with a blood clot on his lung, and he will likely miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season.

While no official timetable has been released, due to the nature of the blood-thinner medication and the toll such a condition takes on the body, it seems very likely Bosh will miss the remainder of the season. A similar ailment took down Mirza Teletovic for the year earlier in the season, and our best wishes go out to Bosh and his family. Without Bosh, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, and newly acquired Goran Dragic are going to be asked to fill the void on offense, and all those guys are due for a boost in value. Udonis Haslem could also become the starting power forward for the Heat, but his upside is limited.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The initial tests taken to determine whether Chris Bosh has blood clots on his lungs came back inconclusive, according to the Miami Heat.

There is a fear that Bosh could have blood clots on his lungs, a condition that would end his season, but nothing is certain at this point in time. He is set to undergo further testing at a Miami-area hospital, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. Obviously he has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Knicks, so there will be more minutes to go around for guys like Udonis Haslem, Luol Deng, Chris Andersen, and potentially James Ennis.

Unconfirmed initial concerns are that Chris Bosh has a blood clot in his lung.

There have been no other reports here and hopefully we get a different confirmation on Friday. The good news is that Bosh is in capable hands in a Miami-area hospital. Anderson Varejao and Mirza Teletovic both had blood clots in their lungs since 2013, but they seem to be putting the issue behind them after they needed to miss the rest of the season. The Heat should have an update for us on Friday.

Chris Bosh (illness) is in a Miami-area hospital and is having an examination on his chest.

He was under the weather earlier today and didn't travel with the team. The Heat have not said anything specific outside of Bosh complaining of pain in his side near his rib cage over the weekend. Hopefully, Bosh only needs to miss Friday. With Bosh out and a slew of players traded, Udonis Haslem and Luol Deng will likely get most of the minutes at power forward. That also means there should be some playing time for James Ennis.

Chris Bosh (illness) will not be traveling with the team to New York for Friday's game against the Knicks.

While there's a small chance Bosh takes a later flight to meet his teammates in New York for Friday's game, it's looking very likely that he's going to sit this one out. Udonis Haslem will have the opportunity to step into the starting lineup if Bosh is indeed ruled out, while Luol Deng will likely get some extended run sliding over to the power forward slot.

Chris Bosh (illness) saw a doctor on Thursday and he's questionable to play vs. the Knicks on Friday.

Bosh revealed that he had a minor rib injury during the All-Star break, but his status is only in jeopardy because of the illness. If he can't suit up the Heat will need more production from Udonis Haslem, Shawne Williams and Chris Andersen. Owners should check for updates after Friday's shootaround.

Chris Bosh (illness) did not practice on Wednesday.

He should be considered questionable for Friday against the Knicks. Bosh lit up the Knicks on Feb. 9 for 32 points and hopefully he'll be out there next to Dwyane Wade. If he's out, Shawne Williams, Luol Deng and Udonis Haslem would play more power forward.

Chris Bosh is dealing with an undisclosed rib injury, but he's not currently in danger of missing any time.

That's new. Bosh revealed that he's "hurt, not injured," pointing to his side near his ribs, when asked about Juwan Howard's comment that he's been playing through pain. Through six games in February, Bosh is shooting just 43 percent from the field and only bringing down 4.3 rebounds per game. Now, we know Bosh isn't 100 percent, which makes those numbers take on an entirely new context. Owners will want to watch this situation closely to be sure Bosh's situation doesn't worsen.

Chris Bosh said he needs to do more rebounding work during the second half of the season.

Bosh also added that Hassan Whiteside is swiping two or three boards per game from him, but his 7.0 rebounds per game average is actually up from the past two seasons. While Bosh has been a tad inconsistent this season, his fantasy owners can't complain too much as he's also upped his scoring numbers from last season and should finish as a top-30 fantasy player this season.
