The Miami Heat have all but confirmed Chris Bosh's future with the organisation is over. 

President Pat Riley said the team were planning to go on without the 11-time All-Star after the medical team refused to allow him to return for the club's training camp.

Bosh has not played since prior to the 2016 All-Star break in Toronto - blood clots prematurely ending his season for the second successive year - and had hopes of returning to aid the team's chances of reaching the playoffs this season. 

However, those dreams were left in tatters by the medical team's announcement that his issues had not subsided. 

There has long been a sense that the Heat were hoping to write off his hefty contract with a medical exemption, and it seems they are also keen to stop the 32-year-old playing for any other team this season. 

If Bosh is out of action for 12 months, the organisation can apply for an exemption, and that will be the case by March 1 when, according to Zach Lowe, they will waive the forward.

Lowe said sources close to the team believe they will wait until that moment to ensure he is unable to play in the postseason for any team he would go on to join.
