Heat's Chris Bosh Eying a Return to the Court Next Season

NBA via Miami Heat(MIAMI) -- Even though he was forced to sit out the rest of the season due to blood clots in his lungs, the Miami Heat announced that All-Star forward Chris Bosh will be healthy and ready to return to the basketball court next season.

After a recent session with the media, Bosh admitted that he played with the clots for "three weeks probably" before his diagnosis.

Bosh vacationed with teammate Dwayne Wade in Haiti during the All-Star break, felt discomfort, and was then admitted to a hospital after his wife pushed him to do so.

"She saves my life on a daily basis," Bosh said with a grin. "I was in a lot of pain, and it got to the point where I kind of had to swallow my pride a little bit. It's an athlete thing. We're always trying to be superheroes out there all the time. I had to put my pride to the side. Usually the woman is going to be the first to do that. I went ahead and bit the bullet and went to the doctor."

Fortunately for Bosh, he'll be able to resume his basketball career.

The 30-year-old Bosh is a 12-year NBA veteran and is in his fifth season with the Heat.

Dwyane Wade Out with Hamstring Injury

Miami Heat/NBA(MIAMI) -- Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has a strained right hamstring and says the best-case scenario for his return would be two to three weeks

“You can’t put a time on it,” Wade said Thursday. “You can’t look at the hamstring and say you’re going to be out this amount of games. Like many muscle strains, you’ve got to go day by day.”

Wade suffered the injury during Tuesday night's loss to Milwaukee in the third quarter while trying to defend Brandon Knight on the fast-break.

The 33-year-old Wade has already missed nine games this season due to various leg injuries.

The three-time NBA champion has played in 35 games this season, averaging 21.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

Heat Forward Chris Bosh Out with Injured Calf

NIBA via Miami Heat(MIAMI) -- As the Miami Heat look to keep their heads above water in the Eastern Conference playoff race, they'll be without forward Chris Bosh for a few games, possibly more, after he suffered a calf strain.

Bosh missed the team's game against against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, which Miami wound up losing.

Even though he has yet to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, Bosh still plans to meet with a team doctor Monday to have the injury reevaluated.

"We're just trying to see how my body responds," said Bosh. "It's one of those things that can get worse, if you don't take care of it. It can be a lot worse than it has to be. So we have to take this precaution right now."

The Heat, who have made the NBA Finals the past four seasons, are off to their worst start in seven years, at 11-13.

A lot of the team's struggles can be traced back to Lebron James' departure back to Cleveland, as well as injuries to starters Dwayne Wade and Luol Deng.

Bosh is off to his best start since joining the Heat prior to the 2010-2011 season. He's averaging 21.6 points and 8.2 rebounds in 23 games.

Curry Drops 40 on Heat

NBA via Golden State Warriors(MIAMI, Fl.) -- Stephen Curry lit up the Miami Heat Tuesday night as he led the Golden State Warriors to a 114-97 victory.

Curry finished the night shooting 12 of 19 from the floor, draining eight 3-pointers. 

There had been some concern in the past couple days with Curry's shooting as he was 8 of 24 in his previous two games. Curry steadied those worries by finding open looks with the help of his teammates. 

"Everything feels in rhythm," Curry said. "My bigs, Draymon Green, Mo Speights, Andrew Bogut set some great screens for me and I got a lot of space. When you see your first two or three go down, your confidence is at a high. Shots just appear and you have confidence to knock them down."

Heat forward Chris Bosh was utterly perplexed by the end result.  With 6:45 left in the fourth, his team was leading by two.

"We got to the end, we're in the bonus, you know 93-95 and we don't score anymore," Bosh said. "We just forget our offense and I don't know why."

The Warriors have now won six straight and are 11-2 on the season.

Bosh: No Hard Feelings Towards LeBron

Miami Heat/NBA(RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil) -- Chris Bosh doesn't have any "hard feelings" towards former Heat teammate LeBron James, who decided to return back to Cleveland this summer.

In advance of the Heat and Cavaliers playing each other on Saturday, Bosh told reporters Thursday that things are fine between him and James.

"There's no hard feelings or anything," Bosh said. "If we're both trying to win, he's against us, and that's a matter of fact."

Bosh even pointed out that he and his wife, Adrienne, sent James a present for his new baby.

"He had a baby shower, and we sent him a gift for his daughter," Bosh added. "Then training camp started, and that was about it."

Bosh said James and him even spoke at Dwyane Wade's wedding in August. "My time is backwards and everything, but we talked," he continued. "I want people to understand I'm a competitor, and he's on the other team. I think he'd understand that, and I understand that, and that's how it is now."

James Scores 35, Heat Tie Series

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO, Texas) -- After two days of taking criticism for missing the final four minutes of a Game 1 loss, LeBron James scored 35 points and added 10 rebounds as Miami defeated San Antonio 98-96 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. The Heat have won 13 straight postseason games after a loss, evening the series at one game apiece.

"What happened on Thursday was Thursday," said James after the win. "My whole focus was how I was going to try to help this team even this up and just try to make some plays."

One play he made was an assist to Chris Bosh for a go-ahead three at the 1:18 mark of the fourth quarter. That gave Miami a 95-93 advantage that they would not relinquish. A Dwayne Wade layup on a broken play upped the lead to five with nine seconds remaining to seal the deal.

The back-and-forth affair saw San Antonio lead by as many as eight points, and hold a one-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. While nursing an 87-85 advantage, both Tim Duncan and Tony Parker missed a pair of free throws midway through the frame. James followed with a three-pointer to take the lead and regain momentum.

Duncan finished the game with 18 points and 15 rebounds for the Spurs while Parker had a team high 21 points. Four different players for the Heat scored in double-figures. Game 3 is Tuesday night in Miami.
