According to a report Brian Windhorst of ESPN on Wednesday morning, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh is continuing to prepare for a return to the court in 2016-2017. However, while it appears that the veteran big man has managed to overcome the odds, Bosh says that he felt “written off” after initially being diagnosed with a second blood clot in his leg.
“Seeing the team doctors, they told me that my season is over, my career is probably over and this just happens, this is just how it is,” said Bosh. “I felt right away that I was written off. It was [clap, clap] put it to the side matter-of-factly. If a doctor tells me, ‘Hey that’s it and this is how that is,’ and I don’t buy that. I have the right to disagree with you. I know inside me I have a lot talent and a lot of ability. I have it. I know I have it. It wasn’t a matter of if I play again, it was when. So we took the bull by the horns.”
After battling the aforementioned diagnosis for the last six months, the 32-year-old has now directed and produced a film titled, “Rebuilt,” a documentary that will air on Wednesday via Uninterrupted.com.
Nonetheless, Bosh recently revealed that he believes that he has found a new medication regiment that will allow him to revive his NBA career as soon as the upcoming season. The medication consists of blood-thinning drugs that are placed in one’s system prior to playing or practicing while Bosh has continued to consult a variety of doctors regarding the matter.
Even so, he has yet to be fully cleared by the Heat’s medical staff.
