Chris Bosh missed the second half of each of the past two seasons due to blood clots.  He recently failed the preseason physical, and during media day, Miami Heat President Pat Riley said they were no longer working on Bosh’s return to the team.  LeBron James, a former member of the Big 3 with Bosh, said he was surprised to hear that the Heat had essentially washed their hands of the player that was supposed to be the cornerstone of the team.

“We all know it’s probably a difficult situation for him,” James said Tuesday, after the Cavs’ first practice. “(I was) pretty surprised a little bit to hear that the team is just done with him, and then to come out and say it. It’s not like I’ve been there, to know exactly what’s going on in the interior. So I’ve only seen it from the exterior like the rest of us.

“So, um, I just wish the best for him and he has my support.”

Bosh had been working out over the summer and seemed very optimistic about his return.  He’s owed $79 million over the next three seasons and has given no indication that he intends to retire.  The Heat would receive cap relief on Feb. 9 if Bosh is declared medically unable to play by an NBA specialist.
