Chris Bosh: ‘I’m Healing at a Very Fast Rate’

Chris Bosh is encouraged by his speedy recovery from an abdominal strain injury, and thinks he’ll soon be able to suit up again for the Miami Heat, should they advance past the Indiana Pacers. From ESPN: “I’m just hoping that everyone can keep doing what they’re doing and extend the season,’ Bosh said. ‘I do have a chance to play again. That’s the light at the end of the tunnel for me. That keeps me going every day.’ [...] He hasn’t resumed basketball activities, but he’s working to strengthen his core and stay in shape by riding a stationary bike. ‘You take it for granted how those little muscles in there play such a huge role in every single thing — sitting down, getting up, turning, walking, talking, anything,’ Bosh said. ‘But it’s gotten a lot better. … I’ve come a far way in a week,’ Bosh said. ‘I was kind of nervous initially but it wasn’t the worst news I could have gotten. I just have to keep believing and stay mentally strong. I think I’m healing at a very fast rate right now.’ [...] Bosh is confident the Heat will prevail in the Eastern Conference semifinals, but wouldn’t put a target on his return. The team says there is no update on the timetable. ‘We’re a hell of a team right now even though I’m not playing,’ Bosh said. ‘We still have to expect the same outcome, no matter what the situation is. … I’m just hoping there’s a chance that I get back,’ Bosh said. ‘They’re going to do their job and I’m going to do my job. All I think about is when I’m back out there, because it’s going to happen. … I need this team just like they need me.’”

    Man, seems like he’s been gone forever.

  • ash

    I hope he can make it back in the postseason healthy and ready to score.

  • LA Huey

    Aint fast enough. Needs to be Wolverine fast.

  • Rik Smits Mullet

    This is great news. He is going to be very useful against the Celtics/Phillie or (i hope not) on a Fishing boat.

    Did Bosh get Tim Duncan’s robot chip implanted in him? Sounds like something TD would say.

    “The recovery process is taking a little longer than anticipated. Once the doctors extract the right amount of DNA from prehistoric mosquitoes fossilized in amber, they should be able to synthesize the missing dinosaur abdominal stem cells needed for complete regeneration….errr…I mean…I’m taking it day by day and it is what it is.”

    HTF does one strain their abdominals? Seriously? Ive never come close to injuring my abs once lol


    all this raptor jokes are gold. makes work so easy

  • shutup

    B!tches only bleed for 5-7 days, get him some Midol and a warm compress.

  • LA Huey

    patrick, assuming you actually play basketball, how often do you try to dunk during a playoff game of the world’s best basketball league?


    Patrick dont worry dude . its because you cant dunk forcefully or at all, thats why you cant understand . Kinda like shutup whos had a gender change hence the P.M.S. yet still calls peeps b!t(hes. That why i dedicate that Common song directed @ Ice Cube to you shutup.

    Sometimes, Bosh makes it too easy for people to whip out those lame a** dinosaurs jokes.

    In all fairness JTaylor, I spent a decent amount of time thinking mine up and getting the wording just right.

    Just as easily as I could see Bosh dunking in the NBA I could see him pasturing in a field with fellow Ostriches.
    Click my name.

    Are Bosh articles the best ones on here?

    Bosh ain’t playin’ no more this year, don’t get your hopes up Heat fans.

    @Patrick I got this – The last time I averaged 15 and 7 in the NBA playoffs, I came very close to injuring my abdominal muscles as well. It’s a good thing I gave that up in order to become a keyboard critic, or I’d be MIA during the 2nd round as well.

    Common song directed at Ice Cube? I’m lost how about you dedicate something recent or better yet keep suckin Bosh off and shut the f$ck up. Sex change wtf are you talkin about? You and your little buddy should go sword fight. I don’t know how you guys get internet in your village but why dont you promise your princes money to someone in an email or something.

    disappointed there’s only one Wolverine reference.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Guys guys guys, you need abs to strain them. I’m guessing Patrick resembles his pink starfish namesake.

    Healing like a Bosh?
