“My situation this year has never been life threatening,” Bosh said in the statement. “I am feeling great and currently I do not have deep vein thrombosis. Together with the Miami HEAT, I am working with doctors, exploring best precautionary treatment options and taking every necessary step to make sure I am healthy for myself, my family and my team. I have been working out, training with the team, watching film of the games, walking through plays, and have attended home games despite not being visible to the public. I will continue to support my teammates in every way possible. I remain positive that I will be able to return this season.”
Bosh’s return would be a big boost for the Heat, who are a legitimate East contender when he’s in the lineup. Despite initial reports saying the Heat were pressing him to sit out the rest of the season, Bosh has been optimistic all along that he’ll return and that has not changed.
