• Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald is reporting that according to a union source, there is “growing optimism” that Chris Bosh (blood clots) will play this season.

    Bosh played just 53 games last season before it came to an unfortunate end due to blood clots in his calf. As it looks more likely that he will play this season, there is no exact timetable for his return to the court. Bosh posted solid numbers last season during his limited time with averages of 19.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. The Heat will be cautious in bringing him back and his playing time may be limited, which makes him a risky fantasy option.
