Chris Bosh was ruled out for the rest of the 2015 season by the Miami Heat back in February, after it was discovered he would need treatment for blood clots on his lung.

Four months later, Bosh has returned to the court.

From Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

Bosh has resumed court work for the first time since being sidelined at the February All-Star break due to blood clots on his lung, working Tuesday with coach Erik Spoelstra, assistant coach David Fizdale, among others.

Back from a recent vacation in South America, Bosh has joined others drilling at on the Heat’s practice court, including Shabazz Napier, James Ennis and Hassan Whiteside, with Zoran Dragic recently returning to also join the sessions. …

Bosh’s recent vacation including some hikes at altitude, but his latest work in the gym is believed to not yet involve contact work.

With blood thinners part of Bosh’s treatment, there has been caution with contact drilling.

Miami’s future — with or without Dwyane Wade — looks much brighter if it includes a healthy Chris Bosh.

A consistently underrated All-Star, Bosh improved his game this year when given the added responsibility of helping to carry the load on the offensive end of the floor once LeBron James was gone.

Over the first 44 games of the season, Bosh averaged 21.1 points and seven rebounds in 35.4 minutes per contest.
