Bosh with Heat for charity event, as future remains unclear

Chris Bosh in NBA 2K16

According to a report from Yahoo Sports, the power forward is expected to meet with Miami Heat officials including owner Mickey Arison and team president Pat Riley.

Chris Bosh is under increasing pressure from doctors and the Miami Heat to sit out the rest of the season due to the potential of a recurring medical condition. The Heat is hosting a fundraiser Thursday at AmericanAirlines Arena.

National Basketball Association star Chris Bosh may have to end his season early because of nagging problems tied to complications from blood clots problems - the same issues that forced hockey player Pascal Dupuis to retire. Spoelstra and other team members attended a baby shower over the weekend for Bosh's wife, Adrienne, who is expecting twins.

That being said, he continues to work out with the team, with Dwyane Wade even telling ESPN on Tuesday that Bosh "gets on the court, shoots [a few] jump shots and gets a little sweat in" and that "he's still a big part of this team". The 31-year-old center forward took blood thinners several months after that.

After Wednesday morning's shootaround, a Heat spokesman said the team had no update on Bosh. This is the second time in as many seasons that Bosh's season has been interrupted by a health scare. He signed a five-year deal for $118 million and became the centerpiece for them in many ways. He last played February 9 against the Spurs.

Bosh withdrew from the All-Star Game two weeks ago because of concern about a strained calf, and there has been no official word on whether he has a blood clot. He was hospitalized and was on blood thinners before being cleared for a return to the court.

In 53 games this season, Bosh has started every game and is averaging 19.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game in 33.5 minutes of play.
