As the Miami Heat preps for the Toronto Raptors, Chris Bosh’s status remains uncertain — it’s clear he wants back in, but the Heat is not comfortable allowing him to play at this time.

“[The Miami Heat is] telling me they’re protecting him from him but he doesn’t feel any symptoms,” Dan Le Batard said on the Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz Monday. “This doesn’t feel like the last time, right? All the doctors the Heat are talking to — and they’re the foremost authority on this stuff — they’re all saying hey, a second occurrence of a blood-clot situation can be catastrophic where you’ve got a death on the court.

“He and his wife want him back on the court and I think this might get messy because I think they’re trying to get the union involved. They do not agree with the Heat’s assessment and he wants back on the court… They’ve scoured the globe trying to find the doctor who will clear them and they’ve got someone that they feel comfortable about but that does not pare against the number of opinions on the other side here.”
