Amidst growing concerns for his health, Chris Bosh will sit down with the Miami Heat hierarchy in the next 24 hours to discuss the best options moving forward, according to Yahoo Sports.


Bosh hasn't played since removing himself from the All-Star game due to a calf strain, and it is thought the Heat want him to sit out the remainder of the season due to fears the blood clot issue that cost him 30 games at the end of 2014-15 could reoccur.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the 31-year-old, for his part, is keen to return to the hardwood at some point before the end of the campaign through the use of blood thinners.

This latest update comes after Bosh has missed the Heat's past five games, in which time he has visited several medical experts to seek advice on a situation everyone is hoping won't prove as serious as this time last year.

If Bosh is shut down for the year it would mean, again according to Yahoo, that the veteran's ability to return to the NBA court would have to be assessed three-to-six months down the line.


Miami's leading scorer this season with 19.1 points-per-game, Bosh's long-term absence from the lineup would be a blow for a Heat team that are putting together a solid season in the East.

Ultimately, however, considering his history with blood clotting over the past 12 months, the 11-time All-Star's health is the most important thing at this time.

Team president Pat Riley and owner Mickey Arison are expected to be in this week's meeting, and there is sure to be an update on its outcome before the end of the week.
