Chris Bosh Broke His Face

by April 07, 2010

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.”
