Chris Bosh Will Miss 2012 Olympics To Rest Abdominal Injury

Not only is the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade going to miss the 2012 London Olympics, teammate Chris Bosh is going to miss them as well. A tweet by Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk confirmed that Bosh will miss the London Games to rest his injured abdominal muscle.

Much was made about Bosh's injury during the 2012 NBA Playoffs and Heat president Pat Riley told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida that Bosh may have rushed back to help his team in the playoffs.

Pat Riley on Chris Bosh and Olympics: "He's still nursing an injury. He had a significant abdominal injury.'' Said he wouldn't have played for another three or four weeks if Heat not in playoffs. "Chris has represented his country all ready... I don't know what's going to happen.''

Bosh was a part of the 2008 United States Basketball Team that won the gold medal at the Beijing Olympics. His best game came against Greece in pool play, where he scored 18 points and grabbed five rebounds. He also had a key game in the semifinals against Argentina, scoring 11 points and grabbing 10 rebounds to help Team USA reach the gold medal game.
