Miami Heat Fear Chris Bosh May Never Be Able to Play Again

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Many have wondered how far the Miami Heat could have actually gone with this team if Chris Bosh were healthy. They were one game away from facing the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals without him. Now, they may never know. 

During the first round of this year's playoffs, with Bosh already being out for a few months, many wondered if the power forward could make a return. Instead, both the Heat and Bosh agreed that it's best to shut him down for the rest of the season.

This offseason will be huge for Miami's future, as well as Bosh's life and career. No one knows if his medical conditions are serious enough that something could happen to him on the court. However, as we've learned from the likes of Hank Gathers in the past, there's definitely a possibility.

Bosh has a wife and kids, and your life isn't worth losing over basketball. The Heat franchise fears that Bosh may never be able to get cleared by team doctors, and he may be forced into medical retirement

Between now and this fall, Bosh and the Heat are going to have to reach a decision about what to do about his future. And there may end up being a complex and gut-wrenching disconnect between heart and mind.

There is a fear within the Heat organization that Bosh’s condition will prevent him from ever being cleared to play by team doctors, several sources said. It’s a result of exhaustive consultations with specialists. Something this big and delicate, the sides have gone deep attempting to understand all the options.

It’s forced everyone to confront the possibility of Bosh ultimately being forced into a medical retirement.

Bosh is already a future Hall-of-Famer. He's done mostly everything a player would want in an NBA career. If his medical conditions are projected to pop out in the next few seasons like they have the past two years, it would be best to call it quits.
