TORONTO (CBSMiami) – The question of whether or not Chris Bosh would return to the Miami Heat sometime during the playoffs has finally been answered.
The Heat released a statement on Wednesday that stated Bosh would not be playing in the remainder of the NBA Playoffs.
Here is the statement in full:
The Miami HEAT and Chris Bosh announce that Chris will not be playing in the remainder of the 2016 NBA Playoffs. The HEAT, Chris, the doctors and medical team have been working together throughout this process and will continue to do so to return Chris to playing basketball as soon as possible.
Bosh last played for the Heat on February 9th, the final game before the NBA’s All-Star Break.
He has been out due to a blood clotting issue that also plagued him last season.
There had been reports of tension between the Heat and Bosh due to the player wanting to return to the lineup and not agreeing with being kept out.
The Heat were 29-24 when Bosh played his last game. The team went 19-10 without him and beat the Charlotte Hornets in seven games during the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
