Veteran Miami Heat center Chris Bosh has been released from the hospital after being treated for blood clots in one of his lungs.
Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat received a scare over a week ago when the star center was hospitalized, but positive news has come out from the Heat organization.
From the Associated Press:
"The Miami Heat forward has been discharged from a South Florida hospital where he was treated for blood clots on one of his lungs. Bosh was hospitalized for just over a week and will still be monitored closely, but simply being released is a major step on his road back to health."

The blood clots mean that Bosh is expected to miss the rest of the regular season. Bosh was averaging 21 points and 7 rebounds per game, and had a PER of 19.9. That was good enough to be named to his 10th straight All-Star Game.
The news came out shortly after the death of former Portland Trail Blazer Jerome Kersey, who died with a similar issue with a blood clot in his lungs.
The Heat are in need of quality play at the center and power forward positions. Only Bosh and the recent emergence of Hassan Whiteside have aided the Heat in that regard, and the team may need to add a piece for a postseason run to be even plausible. Meanwhile, Miami must rely on Whiteside, Dwyane Wade and the newly acquired Goran Dragic to provide leadership down the stretch.
But the good news for Miami and for everyone is the health of Bosh, who appears to be recovering well from his hospital trip. When he is able to return next season, Miami may again be able to field a formidible lineup.
