Chris Bosh leaves game with sprained ankle; not considered serious

Chris Bosh left the Miami Heat’s game against the Bulls Saturday in the fourth quarter and did not return to action.

Postgame X-rays showed no damage and the sprain is considered not serious, according to ESPN, but he likely will have an MRI soon just to confirm that.

No word on whether or not he will miss any games. The Heat’s LeBron James has missed the team’s last two games due to a sprained ankle, but he is expected back Tuesday when the Heat play the Hawks.

That’s the basics, it is what happened postgame that will add to Bosh’s reputation as soft. After the game Bosh was angry about how the injury went down, even through he had no reason to be. There was a loose ball rolling in Bosh’s general direction and he bent down to get it while the Bulls Omer Asik went after it — diving after it before he saw Bosh in place. The two collided and the way Asik hit Bosh’s legs and rolled his ankle.

Before play started again Bosh high-fived Asik but after the game he was much more bitter.

“C’mon, that is how guys get hurt, that is how serious injuries happen,” Bosh said. “You’ve got to watch people’s legs. I know guys want to hustle and everything but we all want to play and provide for our families and have a job.”

It was two guys going for a loose ball, there was nothing to it. This happens when guys hustle. Move on.

The Bulls beat the Heat 99-96.

    Providing for their family? Does Bosh know the difference between his and Omer’s salary? Bosh has 100m guaranteed, Omer has 3.5m. So if Bosh doesn’t want Omer to hustle then maybe he should give him some of his salary.

    If Bosh aka “sidekick” had been on the ground going after the ball he wouldn’t have had the collision. He needs to stop complaining and start hustling.

    Tell Half man Half Avatar to toughen up. Injuries mostly happen when your going half speed/half hearted. Play hard, or stfu! Go Bulls

    What a vagina. First time he gets a headline in ages, and he’s whining. He and LeBitch deserve each other. P.S. Get used to it, you boys are gonna get smacked around for the next few years.

    The retarded guy who Lebron and Dwyane drag around with them is upset that someone else on the floor was hustling for a loose ball? The E.T.-looking fool should shut up and be just be happy he hoodwinked the Heat into paying him that much money. In two years, the Miami fans are going to be pointing to Bosh’s contract as the reason they can’t win a championship. They are going to be stuck with that soft overpaid whiner and will not be able to pay enough quality “supporting cast” to get the Three Am-egos to a championship.

    Tell Bosh, if he wants to be hip and cool like me, he should BANG IT HERE!!!!!!!!!
