Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat are moving towards a resolution that will allow his salary to come off their salary cap without concern of it returning going forward.
Bosh failed a physical in the preseason after missing the final part of both the 14-15 and 15-16 seasons due to blood clots.
The Heat, NBA and NBPA have been working together on a resolution for Bosh's situation that will likely be a one-time allocation.
A return to the NBA by Bosh could have reinstated his cap hit to the Heat.
Bosh's contract expires after the 18-19 season.
The Heat had the right to apply to exclude Bosh's salary from their salary cap as soon as Feb. 9, the one-year anniversary from his last game played.
Bosh still has interest in resuming his playing career.
