Chris Bosh's Rehab Turns Fatal

Most who cover the Miami Heat seem to think star forward Chris Bosh will make his return from an abdominal injury for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night. As it turns out, the muscle strain may be the least of Bosh's problems.

In a pretty stunning story, the Heat star witnessed the death of his masseuse on Monday morning.

According to the police report, the masseuse arrived at Bosh's house on Monday morning and seemed perfectly fine until suddenly collapsing around 10:24 a.m. The masseuse was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 11:45 a.m.

And now, it sounds like there's a very good chance Bosh is going to play in Game 5 despite this happening. I have no idea how he'll do it, given that he witnessed a death less than 36 hours before he'd be taking the court. How does one focus on basketball given these circumstances?
