Miami Heat President, Pat Riley on Monday has said that he believes superstar Chris Bosh has played his final game for the Heat.
Bosh has been sidelined for the second half of each of the last two seasons due to blood clots. Last week he failed the Heat’s preseason physical. The Heat begin preseason training in the Bahamas on Tuesday. Riley has however confirmed that Bosh will not be on that trip. Even though Bosh wants to continue playing, Riley has said the team is “not working towards his return.”

“We feel that, based on the last exam, that his Heat career is probably over” Riley added. When he was asked whether it would mean the end of Bosh’s NBA career, the Heat president said that would depend on Bosh himself.
This would mean the final piece of the famed Miami Big Three has fallen. The team lost Lebron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014 through free agency. They also lost Dwyane Wade to the Chicago Bulls this summer also through free agency.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said now is time to move forward with the 19 other players on the Heat’s preseason roster. “I’m going to prepare for this group right now” he said. “But there’s going to continue to be changes, hopefully not as big of an impact as this. The other 19 players that are going to training camp, my focus will be on them. That does not take away my feelings on C.B”
