Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh returned to the court for the first time on Tuesday since being sidelined in February by blood clots on his lung, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Bosh didn’t do any contact work on Tuesday, as the Heat are being cautious about contact drilling because of the use of blood thinners for his treatment. Still, this is certainly a good step in his recovery, and he also recently went on a vacation that involved some high-altitude hikes.
The plan all along has been for Bosh to be ready to go for the start of next season, and he appears to still be on track for that, which is great news for Miami. The big man is the team’s most important player, and even looking past that, it’s great to see him overcoming such a scary issue.
In other Heat news, Mario Chalmers was back on the court doing some work just four days after a “minor” arthroscopic knee procedure.
