Chris Bosh Fails Physical and Not Cleared for Training Camp

by September 23, 2016

Chris Bosh has failed his physical exam and is not cleared for training camp with the Miami Heat, the organization announced Friday.

Bosh, 32, has been odds with team doctors and waged an ongoing PR battle about his medical condition.

The Heat say there’s no timetable for the 11-time All-Star big man’s return to action:

The Miami HEAT and Chris Bosh, in consultation with team doctors and other physicians, have been working together for many months with the mutual goal of having Chris return to the court as soon as possible. Chris has now taken his pre-season physical. The Miami HEAT regret that it remains unable to clear Chris to return to basketball activities, and there is no timetable for his return.


We are not able to comment further in light of Article XXII, Section 3(e) of the NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement, which precludes a team from releasing certain medical information without a player’s consent.
