Chris Bosh said “I’m ready to play” this season in a podcast for Uninterrupted.
“We’ve been talking about it for a long time. We released a statement back in May saying as soon as I’m ready to play as soon as possible, we’ll play. And I’m ready. I’ve done all work. I’ve done what I need to do working with the doctors.” We’ve been telling you guys all along that we think he’ll be able to play and that the Heat are posturing to get as much leverage as they can get before eventually caving.
There will probably be some issue with back-to-backs, and that will put him somewhere near 65 games played before any other injuries are factored in. He can still be a top-50 guy at that level and the upside in this scenario would be that he can actually play in some back-to-backs. If you’re drafting him in the top 75-90 picks right now it’s possible you’re getting a steal.
