The Miami Heat and Chris Bosh have discussed whether he should come off blood thinners or continue to take them.
If Bosh comes off the medication, there's no reason why he couldn't return to game action.
Bosh has tried to convince the Heat in the past that he can play while on blood thinners as a new medication he's taking would be out of his system in eight to 12 hours by game-time.
The Heat rejected the idea last season which angered Bosh, who has had blood clots in consecutive seasons.
If Miami continues to fight Bosh on playing, he could take up his case with the players union. Bosh wants to play and believes he should be cleared.
If Bosh doesn’t play a single game this upcoming season, his $25.2 million salary for 2017-18 and $26.8 million for 2018-19 would be cleared this summer from Miami’s cap only if “a doctor that is jointly selected by the league and players association agree his condition is career-ending, or severe enough to put him at risk if he continues playing.”
