The team said he is receiving care guided by Heat physicans at a South Florida hospital and resting comfortably.

Bosh sought treatment on Thursday after not feeling well for several days. He averaged 21.1 points and 7 rebounds this season, his first in a five-year, $118 million contract with the Heat.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - New York forward Carmelo Anthony left the Knicks' game against Memphis on Thursday night after spraining his right ankle early in the second half.

Knicks officials said Anthony wouldn't return and that X-rays were negative.

Anthony, the Knicks' leading scorer at 26.6 points a game, injured the ankle on New York's end of the floor and immediately limped to the bench. He was taken to the locker room moments later.

He had 14 points and three rebounds when he left the game.

Two frantic days after a magnitude-7.0 earthquake rumbled across his native Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010, the veteran NBA centre from Montreal returned to the Caribbean nation and could hardly absorb the chaos and horror.

Victims missing limbs lying helplessly in the littered streets. Children covered in blood, screaming for their parents. Buildings pulverized and homes crushed into twisted piles of rubble.
