Chris Bosh Injury: Updates on Heat Star's Status and Return
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Bosh suffered an apparent injury Saturday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Not much is known about the status of the Miami Heat big man, but he was forced to head to the locker room after colliding with teammate Mario Chalmers in the first quarter, per Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald.

Bosh was at least able to return to the bench later in the quarter, per Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Coming into Saturday night, Bosh was averaging 14.3 points and 5.6 rebounds a game, which both rank second on the team coming into Saturday night.

Although Bosh is still behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in the Heat pecking order, his absence would still affect the team in a big way. Chris Andersen would have to step up and play more minutes, and Joel Anthony might be asked to do more.

The latter possibility would surely frighten Miami fans.

At least the injury doesn't seem too serious, so Bosh should be able to make a quick return.
