Chris Bosh Reportedly Has Another Setback, Not Cleared For Training Camp

Chris Bosh has reportedly had another setback on his path back to the court.

Chris Bosh, a 32-year-old 11-time NBA All-Star, missed the second half of the 2015-16 season with a blood clot in his leg.

The two-time NBA champion has been working toward a comeback, but he's reportedly failed his physical and has not been cleared for Miami Heat training camp.

The Miami Herald says the setback is not "life threatening" if it's treated, and it's being treated.

From their report:

A complication has arisen in medical tests involving Heat forward Chris Bosh, derailing his attempted comeback, according to a source.

The complication involved evidence of some continued clotting and is believed to be related to one of two previous blood clot episodes. Those episodes sidelined Bosh after the All-Star break each of the past two seasons.

Though the complication is not considered life-threatening if treated, it requires medication and playing with it is considered unrealistic.

Miami opens training camp Tuesday in the Bahamas and opens its regular season Oct. 26 against Orlando.
