After numerous scares with blood clots over the course of the past two seasons, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh has increased on-court basketball workouts in hopes of returning for the upcoming 2016-2017 season.
In a series of workout videos posted to his Snapchat page, the 32-year-old Bosh suggested that he is prepared to continue his basketball career after having the previous two seasons cut short by blood clots.
Bosh has three seasons and $76 million remaining on a five-year deal he signed in 2014 to stay in Miami.
“I know I’ve been gone for a moment, but now I’m back,” Bosh said in one of the videos posted Monday. “Everybody is always asking me, ‘Am I hooping?’ Yes, I’m hooping. I’m a hooper.”
According to ESPN.com, a source in July told the website that Bosh is preparing to be available to work out when training camp opens on Sept. 27 and expects to be cleared by doctors to rejoin the team.
If Bosh is not medically cleared to resume his career due to health complications, he would be paid the remainder of his contract but it would not count against the Heat’s salary cap after Feb. 9.
