The Miami Heat are in the playoffs but they'll be trying to win the championship without power forward Chris Bosh.

The 32-year-old suffered from a blood clot for a second straight year, and has been out since the All-Star break, told his Heat teammates on Friday that he doesn't feel like he has the ability to participate.

Heat point guard Goran Dragic said, according to Sun-Sentinel, he knows it's tough on him because he knows he wants to be on the court helping out the team.

"It's really tough for him because he wants to be part of this on the court and it's really hard to watch," Dragic said.

"It's a tough situation for him but we need him. Even if he's not going to play, his ability to talk to the players, to show what you're doing wrong or how you're supposed to do it, it's big time."

Bosh averaged 19.1 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists, while knocking down a career-best 1.5 threes a game on 36.5 percent shooting from beyond the arc in 53 games. He was about to play in his 11th All-Star game when the clots were found in his leg.

He started taking blood thinners and said it wasn't as bad as the one he faced a year ago, but he only resumed physical activity in mid-March.
