Chris Bosh PF/C MIA 2 weeks ago

Bosh (chest) stated on NBA TV Tuesday that he will be ready on opening night for next season.

This is great news for the Heat, as while it was expected that Bosh would be able to make a full recovery from his collapsed lung, his exact timetable was still up in the air. Now, with it confirmed that he will be ready to play in the first game of next season, Bosh will look to reassert himself as one of the best scoring forwards in the league and guide Miami back to the playoffs.

Bosh played in 44 regular season games before being hospitalized after suffering from a blood clot in one of his lungs. He was forced to sit out the final 30 games of the season, but in the 44 games he did play, he still managed to average 21.1 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. He is expected to make a full recovery heading into next season.

This was the first year of Bosh's new five-year, $118 million contract, and while health concerns got the best of him this year, it appears as if Bosh will serve as the main offensive threat for Miami for at least the next few seasons. However, Bosh may be playing a slightly different role next season with the emergence of big man Hassan Whiteside. Bosh had grown accustomed to playing the center position, but now, with Whiteside proving is worth as a starting center on both ends of the floor, it is very likely that Bosh moves back to the power forward position, a spot on the floor he played for many years before. Regardless, next season, as long as he can stay healthy, Bosh will look to regain his place as one of the best scoring forwards in the NBA and lead the Heat back to the playoffs.

Bosh (chest) has begun lifting and running, Joe Goodman of the Miami Herald reports.

Bosh, who missed most of the second half of the season with a blood clot, remains on blood thinners, so he's unable to take contact. For the time being, he'll stick to lifting and running before resuming basketball activities over the summer. Bosh told reporters Friday that he hasn't shot a basketball since the All-Star break.

Bosh (chest) is scheduled to resume full basketball activities in September, Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report reports.

Bosh is doing well after a blood clot was discovered in his lung shortly after the All-Star break, but he's on a blood thinner regimen that will prevent him from participating in any contact. It's unknown when he'll be able to begin ramping up activity, but if all goes as planned, Bosh should be ready to go when the 2015-16 season opens in late-October.

Bosh (chest) confirmed Friday morning that he has a blood clot in one of his lungs, NBA TV's Jared Zwerling reports.Bosh will miss an extended period of time, quite possibly even the rest of this season. No timeline has been provided, but recovery from such a serious issue often takes upward of six months. The Heat are in no position to replace Bosh, with the team's lack of depth especially obvious in the frontcourt. Hassan Whiteside will likely take on an even larger role, while Chris Andersen, Udonis Haslem, Luol Deng, James Ennis and Henry Walker are all candidates to get extra minutes. The Heat may need to further explore the free agent market, after signing Walker to a 10-day contract Friday.
