Chris Bosh’s attempt to resume his playing career after a recurring blood clot issue has hit another snag, and this one may not be overcome. According to the Associated Press‘ Tim Reynolds, Bosh failed his latest physical with the Heat and will not be cleared to participate in training camp.
The Miami Herald‘s Barry Jackson has further updates, confirming doctors found another recurrence of Bosh’s blood clotting.
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.
It’s great news that Bosh’s latest issue isn’t considered to be life-threatening, but at this point, it’s getting harder and harder to see him ever playing in the NBA again. Bosh’s close friend and former teammate, Dwyane Wade, feels the same way.
