Raptors lose game to Cavs, Bosh to injury

By TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND (AP)—As Chris Bosh laid on the floor dazed with blood streaming from his nose, the Toronto Raptors felt a different pain.

Their road to the playoffs could be even tougher now.

Flattened by an inadvertent elbow from Cleveland’s Antawn Jamison, Bosh sustained a broken bone in his face Tuesday night as the Raptors, battling Chicago for the final postseason spot in the Eastern Conference, were beaten 113-101 by the Cavaliers, who have won 11 straight at home.

Bosh was accidentally struck by Jamison as the two jostled for position in the lane in the opening minutes. Bosh, who had blood dripping from his nose and mouth area as he was assisted from the floor, was immediately taken to the Cleveland Clinic for a CT scan.

Following the game, the Raptors said tests showed the All-Star forward suffered a “maxilla and nasal fracture to the right side of his face.” Bosh, who returned to Quicken Loans Arena in the fourth quarter, will not travel with the team. Instead, he was to be kept in the hospital overnight for further evaluation.

Bosh’s loss couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Raptors, who entered the night clinging to the No. 8 playoff spot. Toronto has a tough week ahead with games against Boston, Atlanta and the Bulls, who lost to Milwaukee and remain one game behind the Raptors.

It’s not known when Bosh, who is eligible for free agency this summer, will rejoin the team or if he’ll be able to play once he returns.

“We have to keep fighting, regardless if we have him or not,” said Jarrett Jack, who led the Raptors with 23 points. “It doesn’t get any easier and you can’t run. Timing is never perfect it seems in the NBA. It happens and you have to deal with it. It’s part of the game like anything else. Injuries are part of it.

“As silly as this may sound, with Chris going down, it creates an opportunity for somebody to step up. You might have been wanting that playing time all season. It’s in front of you now. You have an opportunity to do something with it and come through for our team, because we’re going to need someone to step up if he’s not able to go.”

If it's his orbital bone he should be out 2-3 weeks which would most likely cause the Raps not to make the playoffs.

I love to watch basketball, whether it be Duke vs Butler or Orlando vs Cleveland, good basketball is good basketball.

I watch a lot of teams play, in fact I watched TO play Cleveland today and do you know what I saw? I saw what I've been seeing all year long; buckets, buckets and more buckets for the opposing team. Bosh is a beast on offense, but the team as a whole on defense are just annoying to watch.

I watch the top teams because they play good basketball, if the Magic, Lakers, Cavs, Jazz, Mavs, Suns, Nuggets, Hawks, Thunder or Celts are playing, I'll probably do what I can to catch the game. I'd also watch if the Cats, Bucks (with Bogut), Heat, Blazers, Rocket, Grizz, Bulls (healthy) or Hornets (with CP3) if I have nothing to do... Other than that, I don't bother watching two bad teams play one another.

My fav player in the league is Dwight Howard, most people on PSD think I'm somewhat of a Dwight-homer, and maybe I am. The Magic is the team I want to win the title, but if they lose, I won't stop watching and cheering, I just continue to go through the list of my fav players/teams. I don't lose any sleep when my team loses a game or w/e and if that makes me a bandwagonner, then I'll gladly accept that label.

I wouldn't be too sure this spells the end for the Raptors. Amir Johnson is a decent backup, and the Bulls aren't doing themselves any favors. A 100% healthy Bulls squad just lost a must win to the Bogut-less Bucks tonight. And I think they were at home to boot. Either way, the team that gets in is getting swept.

I'm not sure but isn't orbital the bone around your eye? I heard the bosh injury is around his nose/mouth.

Doesn't look like he has a return date yet but when he does he'll prolly wear one of those masks ala Rip Hamilton.

Definitely possible because he may be scared to go back out on the court and injure his face even worse. Course if the doctors clear him to play and he doesn't return, then people might consider him chicken****

thats the next thing i was going to say because i knew your comeback would be your a fan of the game, well this is the nba theres always good basketball going on anything exiting happens on any given night..If your a true nba fan you would appreciate all the players and all the teams not just the top teams because every team plays a special way..Two bad teams playing isnt necessarily a bad thing they usually have a nice back and forth duel so its exiting to watch especially if your a true legit fan..
But anyways i live and die by one team its your choice to cheer for 10 teams if you want but one day raptors are going to be on top and your going to be having a bosh in your sig lmao

If Bosh cracks the Top 5 players list, then yes I will, but he isn't on my Top 10 yet.

Btw I don't watch the games because I want to get excited, I watch them to watch good basketball being played. Watching two teams that play no defense or run no plays etc, doesn't sound like entertainment to me. I also watch games to increase my own basketball IQ, you don't know how much you can pick up on just by watching great teams play, positioning, footwork, certain plays, etc...

Only one franchise can claim to be cursed. Lets not take away the honour that clearly belongs to the Clippers. No need to overuse the term. Injury riddled seasons happen far too frequently to label them as "cursed" seasons.
