BOSH FAILS PHYSICAL; CAREER IN JEOPARDY

September 23, 2016 - 1:10 pm

Barry Jackson from the Miami Herald first reported this morning that Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh had failed his pre-season physical with the Miami Heat, jeopardizing his ability to not only play this season but also his career.

 

Here is an excerpt from Barry’s story in the Herald:

A complication has arisen in medical tests involving Heat forward Chris Bosh, derailing his attempted comeback, according to a source.

The complication involved evidence of some continued clotting and is believed to be related to one of two previous blood clot episodes. Those episodes sidelined Bosh after the All-Star break each of the past two seasons.

Though the complication is not considered life-threatening if treated, it requires medication and playing with it is considered unrealistic.

The Heat sent out the following statement:

MIAMI HEAT STATEMENT ON CHRIS BOSH

 

 

MIAMI, FL – 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. Chris has now taken his pre-season 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
