Chris Bosh Broke His Face

CB4 suffered a nasty injury last night in Cleveland, further putting the Raptors’ Playoff hopes in doubt. The Toronto Star has the gnarly details: “Hours after Chris Bosh broke his face and his nose in a freak on-court accident on Tuesday night, the Raptors all-star sat on a table in the visitors’ training room at Quicken Loans Arena. There was a phone glued to Bosh’s ear and a piece of gauze protruding from Bosh’s right nostril, just some of the fallout from an inadvertent elbow he’d received from Cavaliers forward Antawn Jamison about two minutes into Toronto’s 113-101 loss. The blow sent a bloodied Bosh reeling on the hardwood and, soon after, to hospital for a CAT scan that would reveal fractures on the right side of his nose and face. And though it was difficult to say with any certainty the severity of Bosh’s injury or how long he will be sidelined, his teammates were left to assume that, with five games remaining in the regular season and the Raptors clinging to a one-game lead over Chicago for the East’s final playoff spot, they’ll be holding down the fort without their best player for a while.”

    Milwaukee all over again. This is a conspiracy to send LeBron to the finals, mark my words.

    Was that Bosh’s last game as a Raptor? Not that I have any hope that the Bulls will take advantage of this. Shame how all these freak injuries are decimating teams (Bogut for example).

    Conspiracy? Inadvertant means unintentional, I get so tired of people trying to cry wolf

    Shi… nasty indeed, and awful for the Raptors. They have to keep working, because they got lucky last night since the Bulls also lost.

    well i think we can officially count ourselves out of the playoffs… but it sucks to see Bosh’s last game as a Raptor go down like this :(

    Head fractures? Eesh. =( So do the Raps even try to bring him back? It was already looking pretty bleak that he’d resign with Toronto. They could have a Tim Duncan/Grant Hill type situation where deciding on whether he returns to the playoffs might affect whether he wants to return to that organization.

    This will make the 8th playoff spot interesting… if anyone even cares about it.

    I guess he’ll be wearing a protective mask when he returns next season. He’ll also be wearing a Knicks uniform.

    Weird how being hit from certain angles can break bones. I was watching, and it didn’t look like Bosh got hit that hard (I’m sure he’d disagree). It looked like it hurt, but he wasn’t squirting blood or spitting out teeth. Just a regular basketball play, going after a 50-50 ball, and now dude is likely done for the year. He might as well shut it down, unless he wants to come back with a mask and have 4 games to talk to Lebron about joining up in NY next year.

    Conspiracy to get LeBron to the Finals? What a dumb joke….do you really think Bosh or Bogut (at full health) would be able to slow LeBron’s drive to the Finals? Not a chance.

    As a die hard Raps fan, I’d rather see us finish 9th and get in the lottery for next year. What good is a first round sweep against LeBron? Generate a bit of revenue from 2 home playoff games? Big deal.

    I almost agree with goat. It would be nice to see the Raptors go to the playoffs and play well but what does it do for us next year or in the draft? We wouldn’t have much better of a position in the draft though. we could get 12, 13 or 14 instead of number 16, as the only playoff team with a .500 record or worse. what a frustrating season. What will Colangelo do this summer….???

  • http://jayemmbee.blogspot.com Clutch Performer

    I think he will be back the game after the boston game, cuz hedo had the same thing he was back soon, and Bosh is a fighter, this isnt Vince CArter he will come back and play with the mask and even playoffs

  • Mr. Robinson

    Stop being a punk, Bosh! You don’t dribble with your FACE!!! Nah, just bs – ing.

    I know it’s a pretty bad injury and all, but man that headline made me laugh. I imagine chris bosh shouting “OUCH! Coach, I think I just broke my FACE!”

  • http://Slamonline.com S.Man

    MikeC, as much as I believe Bosh is leaving, he will not be going to New York. TRUST ME.

    And that’s his last game in a Canadian uni.
