Pat Riley: LeBron James, Chris Bosh Fully Healthy

by September 24, 2010

Riley says his new guns are injury-free heading into training camp. From the Herald: “Having limped out of last season with injuries, Miami Heat forwards LeBron James and Chris Bosh likely won’t miss a step when the team opens training camp next week. Heat president Pat Riley said Thursday that James and Bosh recently passed voluntary conditioning tests and have recovered from injuries that limited both late last season and into the playoffs. James played with a strained right elbow during Cleveland’s playoff run that ended with a six-game loss to Boston in the second round of the playoffs. Bosh sustained a facial fracture April 6 that required surgery. He missed the final five games of the regular season with Toronto. He also has missed dozens of games in recent years with soreness in both knees. Although James and the Cavaliers initially downplayed the significance of the strain last season, Riley said Thursday ‘it was a real injury’ the Heat checked out after James signed with the Heat as a free agent in July. Riley said James passed a physical examination before signing his six-year, $110 million contract and has shown no discomfort in workouts with Miami’s staff.”
