MIAMI, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- While the Big Three no longer wear the same jersey, its chemistry remains.
"There's nothing really I can say to make things better for him," James told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I texted him today and told him I was sorry and I hate that he has to go through this again."
"Guy means so much to not only the Heat family but his personal family as well. Just a great guy, a professional, a great guy and for something like this to happen to him after he was cleared, it just sucks. It sucks big time. His health is the No. 1 care and obviously basketball comes secondary to what he's going through right now. It's just tough."
Bosh, 31, was set to play in the All-Star Game last week, but pulled out after a "strained right calf" injury.
Bosh is back on "blood thinners to treat clotting in his calf," according to the Miami Herald. Bosh had tests Monday and is out indefinitely, though a full recovery is expected.
Dwyane Wade and James joined Bosh in 2010 to form the Big Three. The trio triumphed in two NBA Championships in four years.
Wade posted a photo Wednesday on Instagram with the caption: "23 combine AllStars.. I would say we are pretty good.. I haven't met many as tough as @chrisbosh #heatnation#ibelieve."
Bosh was selected No. 4 in the 2003 NBA Draft. James was selected first in that same draft, while Wade was taken with the No. 5 pick.
In 13 seasons for the Toronto Raptors and Heat, Bosh has averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
