Miami Heat News: Chris Bosh to Miss Rest of 2015-16 NBA Season
- Updated: April 15, 2016
Despite the optimism, it was confirmed by Dwyane Wade that Bosh will not return during the playoffs. The 6’11” center informed his teammates of his current status on Friday, where he revealed that he would not be taking the court during the postseason.
Wade just revealed Bosh spoke to the Heat today about the playoffs. "He doesn't have the ability to be in it," Wade said.

In a similar scenario to last season, Bosh has been sidelined since the All-Star break due to another setback with blood clots. Instead of a blood clot in his lung this time around, the clot was found in his calf back in February.
Prior to his ailment, Bosh had led the Heat in scoring with 19.1 points per game in 53 games.
While the veteran’s presence will certainly be missed, the team has thrived in his absence, relying on a small-ball attack featuring Luol Deng at the power forward position. The mid-season addition of Joe Johnson also aided in helping Miami clinch the No. 3 seed just a year after missing the postseason.
Although Bosh would love to make a return in the playoffs, his health takes precedence over anything relating to basketball.
