Bosh to miss two games due to personal matter

The Miami Heat will be without All-Star forward Chris Bosh Thursday against Portland as well as Friday against Utah because of a personal matter.

Without Bosh, the team will likely turn to Udonis Haslem, a very capable backup. Thursday's matchup in Portland will be a challenge as the Blazers have an All-Star up front as well in LaMarcus Aldridge.

The Heat though don't have a lot of interior depth, so without Bosh, the second unit will likely rely on Juwan Howard, Dexter Pittman and Eddy Curry even. Then again, the Heat can obviously survive as they have LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Which is an interesting wrinkle, because LeBron could see some of that time at the 4 in place of Bosh.

On the season Bosh is averaging 18.4 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.

I guarantee this "family member" is a great-aunt or something.  Typical NBA.  Bosh has a contract that he's not fulfilling because aunt Bea died of natural causes at 87 yrs old.

Bosh to miss two games due to personal matter

It's sad how these internet trolls try to be tough or insensitive behind the keyboard.

The man just lost a close family member, something all of you have or will endure in the future sooner or later. If you get a response like a couple of the idiotic ones below during a painful moment, I can assure you all it will offend you.

Show some respect. Courtesy doesn't take away bravery.

I think we're all allowed to deal w/ grief in our own way...  and how in the **** did Favre's name get in the mix??

The dude lost a family member... we can tell how close, or how much this means to him.  If he says he needs the time, he needs the time.  Show a little class folks.

Brett Favre is also a self-centered egotystical idiot. His entire faily could have died before a preseason game and he probably would have still played. Anyone bashing Bosh for missing 2 games to deal with the death of his grandmother are just inconsiderate a-holes. You have no idea what type of relationship he had with that women.

You shouldn't make fun of the guy until you know what happened... someone in his family died.
