Brooklyn Nets forward Mirza Teletovic is expected to miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs following Thursday night's loss to the Clippers, 123-84, at Staples Center.
Teletovic played eight minutes off the bench for Brooklyn before asking to be pulled out of the game because he was suffering from shortness of breath, according to the New York Daily News. He was 0 for 3 from the field with one rebound and one assist.
"I had a small problem, but now everything is OK," the 29-year-old Bosnian tweeted Thursday. "Thx all fans from Bosnia, Spain and USA for support."
