Miami Heat star Chris Bosh is being treated by team doctors this week, who are concerned that he may have developed a blood clot in his lung.

Although they're waiting for test results to make a diagnosis, it could spell the end of the big man's season.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Friday (Feb. 20) that Bosh is being treated at South Miami Hospital, and will see "a couple" more specialists before they can offer an update on his condition.

"It's too early for an ultimate diagnosis," Spoelstra said, though he said he is confident the condition is not life-threatening. "I know there is a lot of speculation, a lot of rumors right now."

If there's, indeed, blood clots in his lung, the medication required to treat the condition typically requires at least six months of limited physical activity.

It's scary for Bosh, after former Portland Trail Blazers star Jerome Kersey died suddenly of a blood clot in his lung earlier this week.

He was admitted to the hospital on Thursday (Feb. 19) after complaining about discomfort in his chest for several days.
