Chris Bosh is reportedly healthy and ready to get back into the action in the 2016-2017 NBA Season. However, his team, the Miami Heat have not released any statement about his possible comeback from the blood clot issue and there are NBA rumors that the Florida team is still hesitant to give him the go-signal to return.

There are also speculations of Chris Bosh trades, one of which links the big man in a return to the Toronto Raptors, where he was the franchise player when he started to play in the NBA.

The Heat have been silent on the matter though Heat owner Micky Arison is looking forward to get back Bosh in training camp.

In a recent interview, Bosh said that he’s ready for an NBA comeback but added that it’s still the team doctors’ and the Heat’s decision to allow him to play in the upcoming NBA season.

“I’m ready to play. 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, Bosh said to CBS Sports last week.

“I’ve done all my work. I’ve done what I needed to do, working with the doctors. I’m in incredible shape, at least decent enough. You know, I look good when I take my shirt off.”

There are allegedly league sources that believes Bosh will return next season but not play for the Miami Heat but for his former team, the Raptors.

Via ESPN’s Trade Checker, one possible Toronto-Miami deal is sending Bosh to the Raptors in exchange for Patrick Patterson and DeMarrre Carroll.

This makes sense for both squads with the Raptors adding a veteran in their weak position, the power forward and with the Heat getting two good players to add to their depth. Miami also wants to play fast this season according to Erik Spoelstra, so getting Patterson and Carroll will fit into their plans.

NBA rumors will continue to surround Bosh and his NBA comeback. More interesting though is if he is still part of the Heat’s long-term plans, along with starters Hassan Whiteside, Justise Winslow and Goran Dragic.
