Chris Bosh dealt with a scary health issue last season when blood clots were found on one of his lungs. But the prognosis for Bosh has been good all summer, and he reaffirmed that during an appearance on CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Wednesday, saying he’s “healthy” and “ready to play.”
Bosh also talked a bit about what exactly happened to him (via Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel):
“I developed blood clots,” Bosh said. “I was sidelined with blood clots. I missed the second half of the season. That’s just something I had to battle back from. I had a pulmonary embolism in my left lung. So I’ve been bouncing back, and it’s been a long process, but it’s been great.”
The Heat dealt with plenty of health problems last year, which contributed to them missing the playoffs in the first year of the post-LeBron James era.
But now with Bosh healthy and returning to an extremely talented roster as a whole, Miami will take aim at LeBron’s stranglehold on the Eastern Conference. If all goes right, the Heat could very well be the Cleveland Cavaliers’ biggest challenger in the East.
