    Default Bosh With A Broken Honker? Done for the season. (Update on Pg. 2)

    It sounds as though courtesy of Eric Smith.

    Bosh suffered a "maxilla and nasal fracture to the right side of his face" and will stay in Cleveland overnight for further evaluation

    Probably done for the year.

    He and Bogut should get together in the recovery ward and play some cards or something while they are watching the Bucks and Raptors in the first round of the playoffs.

    I hope not for 2 reasons:

    1) We'll likely miss the playoffs.
    2) We might just of watched Bosh's last game as a Raptor.

    Not necessarily miss the playoffs.

    No reason that this team can't beat the Bulls, Pistons and Knicks. Don't forget the Raptors have the tie breaker with the Bulls. So if they if they beat the Bulls at home they will have a very good chance to make the playoffs.

    If the Raptors lose to the Bulls this weekend then that's it for the 8th seed. Without Bosh they'll be lucky to win a game from here on out.

    That one sounds like a good reason! Keep him on the sidelines.

    Its not really a simple broken nose, a little more complicated than that.

    If it is serious, he will likely be done for the year. He will certainly be out against the Celtics tomorrow and the Hawks on Friday. Hopefully we get some more information on Wednesday.

    Did you not watch the Raptors when Bosh was out earlier this season? If Bosh can't play, the Raptors could very well lose every game, although I'd give them at least one win. Realistically, though, they'll lose against Boston, Atlanta and Chicago, and win against New York and Detroit. That SHOULD be enough get to the playoffs.

    If they do, somehow, miss the playoffs, every Raptor fan better be praying for them to jump into the top three in the draft, because without a top three pick this year, next year is going to look a little depressing, quite frankly. Well, unless Colangelo is somehow able to trade Bargnani and Turkoglu for something useful.

    We have no picks.

    Bargnani is one the few pieces of this team that might be worth keeping for the term of his contract.

    Calderon is half a point guard. Turkoglu is one third point forward. Bosh is an 18ft Jump Shooting 'Supposedly Power' forward. The half of Bargnani that plays post defense, changes and blocks shots, while tumultuously rebounding is as close to a real position player, outside the Rookie and Jack, we got.

    Default Out for certain two games, maybe the season...

    The maxilla is often called the mustache bone, the bone that forms the upper jaw.

    Simply, that’s were your teeth are anchored.

    And while Hedo Turkoglu was able to wear a mask to protect the non-displaced fracture of his orbital bone and other NBA players have been able to similarly protect broken noses, there is absolutely no certainty that Bosh’s multiple injuries can be protected in this manner.

    It may take some time to fully assess just how serious the damage to Bosh’s nose and jaw is. Just as it may time to formulate an appropriate method of treatment.

    But there should be no doubt, Bosh will not be playing in the next two games.

    And it shouldn’t surprise anyone if he were to miss the rest of the regular season.

    Bosh may have played his last game for the Raptors last night. It wouldn't surprise me. He knows that even if the Raptors make the playoffs that they will only get embarrassed by the Cavs so why bother to be part of that fiasco.

    He can relax and enjoy the rest of the NBA season and playoffs from the comfort of the sidelines. I bet Turkoglu wishes he had an excuse to leave early for Turkey.

    The Raptors have a pick if they don't make the playoffs, but considering what would most likely be available where they would draft, I'd rather they make the playoffs.

    And I guess you've been watching a different Bargnani, because the one I've been watching the last four years certainly isn't worth keeping.

    With or without Bosh I don't think this team was going to/will make the playoffs. That picture of Bosh with the dazed look on his face and blood dripping down kinda sums up the Raptors year. Its almost poetic.

    Default Doug Smith: Regular season over for Bosh

    Chris Bosh has had surgery on his nose and his regular season is over because it will be at least until next week before the damage done to his broken nose can be assessed, team medical officials said Wednesday

    Losing season and being punched in the nose with an elbow as a parting gift.

    What a horrible horrible season this ended up being.

    I was really looking forward this year because I really thought we had a chance at being a good team. On paper, I think this team was better than last years or even our Atlantic division winning team. But they have shown to lack heart and the absolutely necessary skill of playing defense. Too bad the season is ending the way it is with Bosh and Turkoglu. It seems almost bitter sweet that we still may make the playoffs.

    Default Bosh Has Played His Last Game As A Raptor?

    Bosh Will Miss Rest Of Regular Season

    Apr 07, 2010 9:31 PM EST

    Chris Bosh will miss the remainder of the regular season after surgery to repair facial fractures.
    http://basketball.realgm.com/src_wir...egular_season/

    The playoffs for the Raptors now look unlikely.

    Bulls fans just loved that officiating last night in the Celtics - Raptors game. Also, nice effective head butt by T. Allen.

    When the Raptors were playing good before the all-star break I thought Bosh would stay, but now I would say the odds are very long that he will remain with Raptors, since he really wants to play on a winning team.

    That's okay Bargnani now can chuck up 25 shots a game. I know he would love to do it.
