Chris Bosh's Miami Heat career appears to be over, but while he hasn't given up on returning to the NBA, it seems unlikely any medical team will clear him to compete.
Blood clots have cut short his previous two campaigns and the 11-time All-Star was not cleared to make a comeback during Miami's training camp.
Bosh's former teammate LeBron James, who he won two titles with, has commented on the situation involving his friend, and the five-time MVP has admitted his surprise at how his old organisation have treated one of their top players.
He said: "I stand behind my brother Chris. The most important thing is his health. Whatever decision he wants to do, I'm all for it. I support him in every way, shape, and facet. It's a difficult situation for him.
"I was pretty surprised to hear that the team was just done with him, for them to come out and say that. But it's not like I've been there. I've only seen it from the exterior. I wish the best for him, he has my support."
Whether it be Bosh, James or Dwyane Wade, Miami's relationship with either member of their big three has not ended well.
