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.

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.
