Chris Bosh has been out for the Miami Heat since February 9th after a second health scare with blood clots in two years. This instance hasn't been as serious though, and the all-star has been pinning to get back on the court recently.
Yesterday, it was revealed that Bosh has been clashing with Heat management over the idea of him returning for the playoffs, even threatening to get the National Basketball Players Association involved.
Well, that's exactly what he did.
The NBPA released a statement today addressing Bosh's concerns:
Our top priority is Chris' health and well-being. We have spoken with Chris and his agent, and have reached out to the Miami Heat. We are hopeful that all parties involved can meet as soon as possible to resolve the situation.
At the end of the day, Bosh's health is the most important thing at stake here. If he truly is ready to go on that end, the Heat should allow him to play.
Of course, the details of his current condition are vague, so it's impossible for us to speculate on what the right call is here.
Whatever it is, hopefully the Heat and Bosh can resolve it soon. Game 1 between Miami and the Toronto Raptors is tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST on TNT.
