Alex KennedyVerified account@AlexKennedyNBABrandon Ingram has a DVT - a blood clot that forms in the leg (usually when immobile, like on a flight). A DVT can become a pulmonary embolism. That's what Chris Bosh had. It can kill you. He'll need to take a blood-thinning med for a few months. You can't play while on that med.
That's scary as hell.
UnfortunateBut also, youd be a liar if you tell me hasn't crossed your mind right about now
Terribly sorry that he has to deal with this. Hopefully his health turns out OK in the long term. If heís got his head on straight heís a 20 year old millionaire who can do amazing things with his life regardless of basketball, as long as he has his health.
