Only three months ago there was talk that Chris Bosh may never play in the NBA again after a battle with blood clots cut his season short for the second consecutive year.
But it seems the consistent All-Star is on the mend, which is great news for a new-look Miami Heat roster.
After months out, the forward took to social media to ensure his fans he was still playing basketball with an emphatic message.
Having not played in the NBA since before the All-Star break in Toronto in February, Bosh has been keen to get back on the hardwood, however, health issues have hindered his progress.
There is still no time frame set for his Miami comeback, but his messages seem to hint that he is ready and raring to go.
"I know I've been gone for a month. Now I'm back," Bosh said. "Everybody keeps asking if I'm hooping. Yes, I'm hooping. I'm a hooper."
He also posted another video of himself in the gym, dribbling and nailing a three-point shot.
It's been all change in Miami this summer. They were able to tie down Hassan Whiteside but will head into a campaign without Dwyane Wade for the first time since 2002 as he moved to the Chicago Bulls.
After reaching the Eastern Conference semifinals in what many have considered a surprising season, a lot of the burden will rest on the shoulders of sophomore duo Justice Winslow and Josh Richardson after Luol Deng and Joe Johnson also departed the American Airlines Arena.
While Whiteside and the two youngsters are the future, the return of Bosh would be a welcome relief and may give them the boost they need to creep into the playoffs next year.
The inclusion of Bosh really changes the dynamic.
