Report: Chris Bosh won’t speak to Pat Riley, Heat career could be over
The relationship between Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat has reportedly turned icy in recent months, and Bosh failing his pre-camp physical is not going to help smooth things over.
Shortly after the Heat announced Bosh has not been cleared for training camp, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported that Bosh has not spoken with Heat president Pat Riley in months. Woj also says the team believes Bosh is done in Miami.
Sources: Miami Heat increasingly believe Chris Bosh's career with franchise is over. For months, Bosh hasn't wanted to speak with Pat Riley.

Given his recent history with blood clots, it would not be a surprise if Bosh did not play in the NBA again in general, let alone with the Heat.
If you heard the comments Bosh made about the Heat in a recent documentary, you know he is not on good terms with the team. Their reluctance to clear him to resume basketball activities — whether justified or not — is probably just adding to Bosh’s level of frustration.
