Chris Bosh Injury: Heat Forward Leaves Game After Falling Awkwardly On Left Leg

The Miami Heat are already losing Game 1 of their second-round 2012 NBA Playoffs series against the Indiana Pacers, and now, they may have to deal without one of their top players. Forward Chris Bosh had to leave the game with less than a minute to go in the first half after coming down awkwardly on his left leg.

Here's the play.

Bosh was going for a slam dunk on Indiana Pacers star Roy Hibbert, and upon completing it, he landed straight on his left leg. He tried to stay in the game, but struggled through the Heat's next defensive possession and ended up crouching on the ground after it was over. The Heat called a 20-second timeout to get Bosh out of the game.

Bosh had a very strong first half, posting 13 points and five rebounds. If he cannot play for a significant period of time, Miami is in trouble.
