MIAMI (CBSMiami) — More blood clotting complications are derailing Miami Heat star Chris Bosh’s comeback.
According to the Miami Herald, the complications had to do with evidence of continued clotting.
It’s believed to be related to one of two past clotting incidents which sidelined the player after the All-Star break in the past two seasons.
While the complication is not considered life-threatening if treated, it does require medication.
As for playing with that condition, it’s considered unrealistic.
On Friday, the Miami Heat released a statement on the matter saying,
“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. 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.
We are not able to comment further in light of Article XXII, Section 3(e) of the NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement, which precludes a team from releasing certain medical information without a player’s consent.”
Bosh was diagnosed with a blood clot that went from his leg to his lung back in February 2015. He was also diagnosed with calf clot this past February.
