Pat Riley says Chris Bosh's Miami Heat career is over

Published Add your comment

Chris Bosh's comeback attempts were put on hold last week after it was revealed he had failed a medical and would not return in time for the Miami Heat's pre-season training camp.

The forward has been out of action since the 2016 All-Star break after blood clots were discovered, but there was real hope he could make a return following videos that had been posted on his social media page.

However, after his previous two campaigns were cut short by the injury, the team's medical department insisted the issue had not gone and he would not be cleared.

As the season approaches, Heat president Pat Riley has confirmed his, and the franchises, thoughts on the 11-time All-Star's future with the organisation.

Asked if they were planning for a future with Bosh, he said: "We are not. I think Chris is still open-minded. But we are not working toward his return.

"We feel that, based on the last exam, that his Heat career is probably over."

Speaking on whether he felt Bosh's NBA career was over, Riley added:  "That's up to him."

The future is not looking good for the former Toronto Raptors man. We wish him all the best in his fight to return to the hardwood.
