Miami Heat News: Chris Bosh Cleared To Resume Basketball Activity
- Updated: April 18, 2015
Bosh missed the second half of the regular season when he was ruled out for the year due to blood clots found on his lung back in February. The clots were serious to the point that the veteran big was in the hospital for a week.
Bosh on his health: “I feel good. I’m in a nice rhythm now. My offseason started 2 months ago.”
Prior to the illness, Bosh was averaging 21 points and seven rebounds per game. His last appearance of the season was the All-Star Game, the 10th time he has appeared in the annual contest. Though CB has begun his comeback, he is still limited to basic workouts such as lifting and running. He has not shot a basketball since February and is still unable to take contact.
Bosh: “This summer I have the chance to build slow and come back (next season) in the best shape of my life.”
During the 2014 offseason, Bosh was signed to a five-year, $118 million contract, becoming one of the highest-paid players in the league. Heat President Pat Riley commented on the veteran’s value to the franchise upon the signing:
“Chris Bosh is a two-time NBA champion and one of the most versatile big men in the league. His unique skillset makes him one of the best players in the game today. I’ve always felt he was committed to this organization, this staff and this city. I think he’s going to have the opportunity of a lifetime leading this team next season and having the nine-time NBA All-Star back in the fold was a big key for us. We are very blessed to have him.”
With his health issues now behind him, it is absolutely imperative that the Heat have Bosh back playing at an All-Star level. After he was ruled out for the season, the team went just 15-15 and clearly lacked a scorer to pair up with Dwyane Wade.
Here’s to wishing the best of luck to Bosh as he continues his road back to the hardwood.
