Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh joined teammate LeBron James among the team’s walking wounded Saturday night. Bosh torqued his ankle in the third quarter in Miami’s 99-96 loss to the Chicago Bulls, and missed almost the entire fourth quarter as Dwyane Wade’s 33 points weren’t enough to earn a win. The injury happened as Bulls rookie center Omer Asik dove for a loose ball and collided with the side of Bosh’s left leg.
