Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh had a health scare back in February and has not seen the court since. Now he is "positive" about his chances to play again. 

Chris Bosh hopes to return after health scare

The NBA is nearing the end of the regular season and it’s almost time to start gearing up for the playoffs. The Miami Heat are going to be back in the postseason this year and are hoping to have forward Chris Bosh back in time for their run.

Bosh had a health scare back before the All-Star weekend, where he was not able to compete due to what was originally ruled a calf strain. It ended up being much worse as he was dealing with a blood clot issue, which has kept him out of action ever since.

The Heat superstar spoke with reporters on Thursday and he seems confident to be back on the court this season. Chris Bosh told SI.com that he doesn’t have “deep vein thrombosis” and that the issue had “never been life threatening.”

So far this season, Bosh averaged 19.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game this season before his injury. Let’s hope that he can stay healthy and get back on the court with his team very soon.
