NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets say forward Mirza Teletovic is in a Los Angeles hospital with blood clots in his lungs and will miss the rest of the season.
The 29-year-old player was taken there after he had shortness of breath during Thursday night's game against the Clippers. He was given blood thinners to reduce the clots and will remain in Los Angeles until he is cleared to travel.
Because the drugs slow the body's ability to stop bleeding, Teletovic has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
The 6-foot-9 Bosnian is in his third year in the league and is averaging 8.5 points and 4.9 rebounds this season.
