Chris Bosh wants to be back on the court this season, having missed the end of the last two seasons with a serious blood clot health issue. Heat owner Micky Arison at least wants to see him in training camp. However, the Heat and their doctors have yet to clear Bosh to return to the court. The sides are talking, but the Heat have yet to sign off on a plan.
But from the Bosh/players’ union side, they feel optimistic, reports Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
There is growing optimism about Chris Bosh being cleared by the Heat to resume his career while remaining on blood thinners, according to a union source.
Bosh pitched the Heat on playing late last season, while taking a new form of blood thinner that would be out of his system in eight hours or so. The Heat resisted that approach at that time but is now more open than it had been to Bosh playing while on blood thinners, according to the source.
If Bosh is approved to play, will there be restrictions on his travel? Will there be restrictions on his minutes?
Still, it feels like the two sides are going to find some common ground.
