According to Dan Le Batard of ESPN, the Heat are expecting Chris Bosh (blood clots) to be available next season.
We've heard conflicting reports on this for a while now and it doesn't help that the Heat haven't been very transparent. Pat Riley recently refused to put a timetable on Bosh's return and there have even been some reports that the Heat fear that Bosh might not be able to play again. Hopefully we will get some more clarity on the situation soon. May 20 - 12:56 PM

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Pat Riley said there is no timeframe on Chris Bosh (blood clot).

"It's going to have to be done in a way that we all feel good about," Riley said. This isn't a big update for a team that didn't even list a reason for Chris Bosh being out on their injury report. Bosh and Heat are trying to work on a plan to get him back, but none of their team doctors look to be willing to clear him while playing on blood thinners. His career could be in jeopardy.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

According to ESPN's Dan Le Batard, Miami is hopeful that Chris Bosh will be able to play next season.

To recap: ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports that there are some within the organization who fear Bosh's career is over, while Le Batard, also of ESPN, states that there is hope within the organization that Bosh will be able to play. Unfortunately, nobody really knows the truth of the situation and we can continue to expect non-updates like these until something definitive is given on the record. It's not fair to Bosh to have this unsubstantiated information presented while he's trying to get his health in order, but that won't stop it from happening.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

"There is a fear within the Heat organization" that Chris Bosh will never play in the NBA again, sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Per Windhorst, Miami's fear stems from the idea that Bosh's condition "will prevent him from ever being cleared to play by team doctors." One scenario on the table is Bosh being forced into medical retirement, and the two sides will have to navigate an uncertain and uncomfortable road together moving forward. There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding Bosh, and nobody—including Bosh and the Heat—knows how it will ultimately play out.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said there is "no dispute" between the Heat and Chris Bosh about his playing status.

"It seems like the science is clear here," Silver said. "There is no dispute here between the player and the team and the league as to what the condition is. This is primarily a relationship matter between the Miami Heat and [Bosh]. He is a fantastic guy and a wonderful player—obviously I feel for him that he’s out right now." There remains no timeline for Bosh's return, and he will not play in the 2016 playoffs.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Heat reporter Ira Winderman told 560 WQAM that he doesn't believe Chris Bosh (blood clots) will play in the NBA again.

Bosh was trying to get clearance from doctors to return to the Heat for the playoffs and even asked the NBPA to step in, but the Heat announced on Wednesday that he has been ruled out for the rest of the postseason. There was simply too much risk for Bosh to return this season, but to be clear his status for the 2016-17 season has yet to be determined.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The Heat ruled out Chris Bosh for the remainder of the postseason, according to a team statement.

The statement said the team, Bosh, doctors and medical staff have been working together through this process. Bosh has reportedly been trying to get clearance, including seeing other doctors to do so. However, the team likely feels there is just too much risk involved here. It'll be Luol Deng manning the power forward spot the rest of the way this year. Bosh's status for next year is undetermined.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The NBPA has reportedly requested to have a meeting with the Heat to try and resolve the situation with Chris Bosh (blood clots).

Bosh wants to get back on the court, but the Heat continue to list him as "out indefinitely" after a second blood clot scare prematurely ended his season. Bosh may be letting his competitiveness get in the way of his better judgement, as he his condition could turn into a life threatening one if something went wrong on the basketball court. He may get a meeting, but thus far, there's been no indication that he's close to a return.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clots) will be in attendance for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Raptors, although he remains "out indefinitely."

Bosh caught a flight up to Toronto with Heat owner Micky Arison on Tuesday, but he did not go through shootaround, and it remains unlikely that he'll be able to return at any point during Miami's playoff run. He still has not practiced with the team in any capacity since hitting the sidelines back in February.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The NBPA has released a statement on Chris Bosh (blood clots), saying that their top priority is Bosh's health and well being.

"Our top priority is Chris' health and well being," read the statement. "We have spoken with Chris and his agent, and have reached out to the Miami Heat. We are hopeful that all parties involved can meet as soon as possible to resolve the situation." Bosh is trying to force his way back onto the basketball court, and has reportedly found a doctor outside of Miami's medical staff that may clear him. However, Miami will have the final call in this situation and given that a reoccurrence of the blood clot issue could have "catastrophic" consequences, it would be surprising to see Bosh back on the court this postseason.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clots) did not travel to Toronto with the Heat in advance of Tuesday's Game 1.

Bosh will travel to Toronto with Heat owner Micky Arison, but was not present at shootaround on Tuesday. While Bosh has been rumored to be pushing for a return, the Heat are going to be careful not to rush things so it would be a bit of a surprise to see Bosh take the court against the Raptors in Round 2.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clot) has been pressuring the Heat to play, according to ESPN's Dan Le Batard.

Bosh could be looking to the NBPA to get help to play again. He has been taking some shots and could be looking for a different doctor to clear him. Obviously, the Heat want to be very, very careful with the former All-Star.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clots) would like to return for the 2015-16 postseason.

While Bosh would like to return, the Heat continue to insist that he is out indefinitely. Bosh has been traveling with the Heat, but hasn't played since February 9 and would likely have a bit of rust to shake off. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but it doesn't look as though a return is imminent for Bosh.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clots) remains out indefinitely, but he has no plans to retire according to the Miami Herald.

Bosh hasn't spoken with the media since Feb. 13 and the Heat continue to be super secretive regarding his status. He's still using blood thinners according to this report, and most of the doctors that he's visited suggested that he keep using them for several months. Bosh is fully expected to play in the 2016-17 season and just recently started traveling with the Heat for away games as well, but it doesn't sound like he will be able to return to the court during the Heat's current playoff run.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clots) and Tyler Johnson (shoulder) will not play in Game 1 of Miami's first-round series against Charlotte on Sunday.

Neither guy is likely to make it back to the court for the first-round, and Bosh is very likely to sit out the entire post-season. The Heat will likely be going with a starting frontcourt of Luol Deng and Hassan Whiteside to begin the playoffs.
