Beloved “Inside the NBA” host Ernie Johnson was faced with some somber and potentially dangerous news after a routine physical. He found out that he has blood cloths in both legs and due to this discovery he won’t be able to fly to the MLBs, since air pressure from flying increases the chances that one of the cloths gets dislodged and moved into the bloodstream, where it could block a major artery and put him in grave danger.
Johnson was put on blood thinners and we are keeping our fingers crossed that he will get cleared for flight in time for the basketball season, because we all love a complete Inside the NBA lineup!
We wish Ernie a speedy recovery!
