Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh has had each of this last two seasons cut short due to blood clots, raising major questions about his playing future. However, he and the Heat have been working all offseason to see if he can safely play on blood thinners, and according to Bosh, he'll be back on the court this year.
“I’m ready to play,” he said in a podcast for Uninterrupted. “We’ve been talking about it for a long time. We released a statement back in May saying as soon as I’m ready to play as soon as possible, we’ll play. And I’m ready. I’ve done all work. I’ve done what I need to do working with the doctors.
“I am in incredible shape, at least decent enough. I look good when I take my shirt off. Especially with [Heat owner] Micky Arison saying, ‘see you at camp.’ I think it’s moving forward. I have no reason to believe that it’s not. And we’ll finish this.”
The Miami Herald reports that the Heat are expected to clear Bosh to play, though it's unclear when that will happen or if Bosh will be available to play in every game.
Bosh averaged 19.1 points and 7.4 rebounds in 53 games last season.Back to the Miami Heat Newsfeed
