Chris Bosh pushing to return to Heat, team has not cleared him
Chris Bosh thinks he’s ready to rejoin the Heat for their playoff run, but the organization doesn’t seem to agree.
In what appeared to be a coordinated effort on Tuesday, both Bosh and his wife took to social media indicating Bosh’s readiness to play. First, Adrienne Bosh sent out the following tweet:

She then retweeted a video of Bosh hoisting jumpshots that came from Bosh’s Snapchat.

Bosh seems raring to go, but according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Heat are still holding him back.
“There is no update,” team spokesman Tim Donovan told ESPN. “He is out still indefinitely.”
According to Windhorst, Bosh will not return until he is cleared by Miami’s team doctors. They have not done so, and believe that no other NBA team would clear him either.
It’s just another chapter in what has become a rather lengthy stalemate between player and team. Bosh has been sidelined since the All-Star break due to a blood condition. He has maintained since March that he feels good and wants to return, but the Heat have not been comfortable clearing him. You can hardly blame them given the seriousness of the condition.
