Chris Bosh has the mindset of being more likely to attempt a comeback before the 17-18 season than return at some point this season, according to a source within the league connected to Bosh.
Bosh failed his physical with the Miami Heat in September and Pat Riley subsequently said his career with the franchise is likely over.
The Heat will attempt to remove Bosh from their salary cap though that will require him to be medically forced into retirement. An independent doctor will rule on Bosh's medical condition.
Bosh has two additional seasons remaining on his contract with the Heat that he signed in 2014 as a free agent.
