IS this the end of Chris Bosh's NBA career?
Reports on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) said Bosh failed his physical with the team and has not been cleared to join the pre-season training camp.
The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reported that there were "complications" in the medical tests of the Heat forward and is related to the blood clotting that has prevented Bosh from playing in the last two seasons.
The Heat said in a statement there is no timetable for Chris Bosh's return.
"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," said the Heat in a statement.
"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."
With the departure of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, Bosh is the only player left from the "Big 3" which led the team to four NBA Final appearances and two NBA titles.
