It has been a surreal year for Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh that now has his NBA future in jeopardy. He has dealt with two separate blot clot issues. The latest situation has drawn the most attention given that Bosh attempted to come back this season from the ailment. However, the details of what he planned on doing to return for the playoffs were jaw dropping, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

According to a team source, the Bosh camp spent considerable time exploring the idea of Bosh continuing to take those blood thinners, but at a time of day (such as early morning) that the medication would be out of his bloodstream by game time.

Someone with knowledge of the situation said blood tests indicated the medication was out of Bosh’s system after 8 to 12 hours, which would significantly lessen the risk for Bosh playing. But the Heat and team doctors rejected that idea.

Yes, this does show that Bosh has a strong passion and love for the game, but it’s his life that could be at risk if he did take the court. It’s an extremely serious matter that needs to be properly medically cleared in order to move forward with his NBA career. This is an ailment that has been scientifically proven that professional athletes have a greater risk of developing blood clots.

Bosh does play a key role on the Heat and is under contract for the next three seasons. However, his personal health comes before anything else period. No matter how much he wants to play, the Heat must do what’s best for Bosh even if he doesn’t want to.
