Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Heat president Pat Riley said on Monday that Chris Bosh's career with the Heat is over.

"I think Chris is still open-minded. But we are not working toward his return," Riley said. "We feel that, based on the last exam, that his Heat career is probably over." When Riley was asked if Bosh's NBA was over, he simply said that it's "up to him." The Heat sound like they are ready to move on and will have to rebuild their roster around Hassan Whiteside, Justise Winslow, Goran Dragic and Josh Richardson. While Bosh remains hopeful to play in the NBA again, fantasy owners shouldn't burn a draft pick on him until we hear some good news.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The Miami Heat have released an official statement on Chris Bosh stating that the team is unable to clear him to take the court.

"The Miami HEAT and Chris Bosh, in consultation with team doctors and other physicians, have been working together for many months with the mutual goal of having Chris return to the court as soon as possible," the statement said. "Chris has now taken his preseason physical. The Miami HEAT regret that it remains unable to clear Chris to return to basketball activities, and there is no timetable for his return. We are not able to comment further in light of Article XXII, Section 3(e) of the NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement, which precludes a team from releasing certain medical information without a player's consent." Bosh remains hopeful that he'll be able to play in the NBA again, but as has been the case since last season, there remain more questions than answers and the search for clarity is again clouded by fog.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clots) remains hopeful that he will be able to play again.

After failing his physical for the Miami Heat, Bosh received a second opinion from the NBA that agreed with the Heat's findings. Doctors found evidence of "some continued clotting" which would make it too risky for him to play, and he is still considered out indefinitely. His NBA career could be over, but he's not giving up hope just yet and said "it wasn't a matter of if I'm going to play again, but when." The Heat will have to rely on Justise Winslow a ton right out of the gate, while Derrick Williams, James Johnson, Josh McRoberts and Luke Babbitt all have a chance to earn significant minutes.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Heat increasingly believe that Chris Bosh's career with the franchise is over.

Woj adds that Bosh hasn't spoken with Pat Riley in months, and it's no secret that the two sides have had their fair share of disagreements regarding Bosh's health. The 32-year-old forward recently failed another physical because doctors found evidence of "some continued clotting," and while the Heat simply said that he has no timetable for a return, his NBA career could be over. The Heat are hopeful to get a meeting with Bosh soon to discuss his future. This story is just heating up, so check back for updates throughout the week.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh has failed his physical and will not be cleared for training camp according to Tim Reynolds of the AP.

An additional report by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald indicates that doctors have found evidence of "some continued clotting" which is believed to be related to one of two previous episodes. While the complication is not life-threatening if treated, playing with the condition is considered "unrealistic." It's currently unclear if Bosh will attempt to play again, but he is not expected to file a grievance with the union or push to return in the immediate future. His career is in serious jeopardy and his chances of playing again in the NBA appear to be slim. Justise Winslow, Derrick Williams and James Johnson will have to step up. For what it's worth, the Heat continue to say that Bosh has no timetable for a return.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh (blood clots) said that he's in "good spirits" and he "can't wait" to get back on the court.

To be clear, the Miami medical staff has not officially cleared Bosh, but if he is not cleared, he has said that he'll take the issue to the players union. Bosh sounds determined to play, and he has found "respected doctors" that have said playing while on a blood thinning medication that would be out of his system by game-time could be an option, and Miami is reportedly warming up to this idea. Still, there's too much unknown here to risk anything more than a late-round selection on the 11-time All-Star.

Chris Bosh said in his documentary Rebuilt that the Miami medical staff told him his career was "probably over" last winter when he was diagnosed with a second blood clot.

Bosh has been fighting that diagnosis since he got it, and it's worth noting that in recent weeks the Miami medical staff has warmed up to the idea of Bosh playing while taking blood thinners. He has been working out for the past couple months, although he still hasn't officially been cleared to take contact, and that decision won't be made until the medical staff has time to analyze the result of his physicals. If Bosh is not cleared by Miami, he's expected to pursue the issue with the NBPA. There's early round upside here, but the uncertainty of the situation makes it tough to justify looking his way until the later rounds.

Chris Bosh (blood clots) is reportedly going through physicals with the Heat, although the Miami franchise has not made any comments on whether he's passed those physicals or otherwise.

Bosh recently stated that he's "ready to play," and there's reportedly "growing optimism" that he'll be able to take the court next season, so there's enough here to justify taking the plunge on Bosh towards the later rounds given his early-round upside. If Bosh is able to take the court this season, expect his usage rate to be closer to 30 with Dwyane Wade now in Chicago.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

On Uninterrupted's Open Run Podcast, Chris Bosh said he is "ready to play."

"We’ve been talking about it for a long time," Bosh said. "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." On top of this, the Miami Herald reports, "the expectation is that the Heat will clear Bosh to play, although the timetable isn't determined, and it's unclear whether he would be available for every game." It would appear Bosh is more likely than ever to suit up for at least some action this season, but nothing is a lock at this point. For fantasy, it makes sense to roll the dice on Bosh once the high-upside, high-demand players come off the board.

Udonis Haslem said that he expects Chris Bosh to be an active participant during training camp.

"I’m definitely expecting him to be at camp and to be participating," said Haslem. "I’m not sure if it will be full contact or by himself or if he needs me to work extra with him or whatever the situation may be, but I’m expecting him to be there." Bosh has recently posted some videos of himself working out, although he's still yet to take contact and the Miami medical staff is still debating whether or not it's safe for him to play while on blood thinning medication. Until we get some definitive info here, it's going to be tough to justify taking Bosh prior to the later rounds.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, there is a "growing optimism" that Chris Bosh (blood clots) will play this season.

The Heat were opposed to allowing Bosh to play on blood thinners last season, but they are reportedly now open to the idea. It's unclear how much of a workload he would be able to handle if he remains on blood thinners, but it would make sense for the Heat to limit him on back-to-back sets in this scenario. He's still a risky gamble in fantasy and the Heat haven't said much regarding his status, but things appear to be moving in the right direction and we should finally have some clarity in the next few weeks.

"The Heat is working on potential solutions" to get Chris Bosh (blood clots) back onto the court for the 2016-17 season, a source told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

While this is encouraging, it's still not really much of an update given the uncertainty that still surrounds the situation. Per Jackson, "discussions remain focused on the Heat's comfort level with Bosh taking new [blood] thinners that would be out of his system within eight hours or so, and ways for him to play while taking those type of thinners." At this point, there is no questioning Bosh's desire to play, but Miami still needs to clear him and the two sides must reach an amenable agreement before that can happen.

Josh Richardson said that he and his teammates have received no real update on Chris Bosh's (blood clots) playing status.

Miami continues to be awfully quiet when it comes to Bosh's chances of getting back onto the court, and there's just no real way to project the big man's fantasy stock until we have more information regarding his condition.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

According to the Miami Herald, the Heat still haven't medically cleared Chris Bosh (blood clots).

Training camp is just around the corner and Bosh is still awaiting word on his status. He's been working out and has made it clear that he wants to play this season, and while the Heat have explored the possibility of Bosh playing while on blood thinners, they aren't ready to say anything definitive. He remains a high-risk, high-reward pick in fantasy until we have more clarity.
