There is no deadline, just like there was no timetable that dictated that Bosh would suffer a blood clot at midseason each of the past two seasons. But that doesn’t mean the clock isn’t running for a player whose last competitive action was Feb. 9. At this stage of the offseason, most players are working their way toward game shape. Players no longer use training camp to get into shape (which proved to be an issue with Goran Dragic last season after his inactive summer). Now they arrive ready to go, and, in the Heat’s case, ready to pass the team’s conditioning test. That, by itself, would create issues, if the rest of the team already is up to speed at the start of camp. What would be welcome would be a sign of Bosh returning to vigorous workouts, perhaps even on Snapchat or Instagram. As for Spoelstra having to develop dual game plans, that’s what coaches have to do anyway, prepare for each and every eventuality.

With the Heat’s Chris Bosh, conversations are continuing regarding potential use of blood thinners that could be out of his system by game time. It remains undecided if the Heat will be OK with that approach (they weren’t when he suggested that last spring) or whether they will clear him to play. There are mixed opinions in the medical community about whether a player who has had two clotting episodes in the span of a year (but doesn’t have the gene that makes him pre-disposed to clotting) should remain on blood thinners beyond the normal six-month cycle. Bosh falls into that category.

Now, if the Heat know/learn that Chris Bosh won’t be able to play this season, and therefore potentially have to move Winslow to power forward, then the possibility of Gay could become somewhat more realistic. But even then, the Heat would have to send something close to Gay’s $13.3 million salary back to the Kings, a figure than cannot include any player signed this offseason (such deals are prohibited until Dec. 15). Working with that math and those limitations, it is difficult to build any package at the moment that doesn’t include Goran Dragic. Even if the Kings were interested in Josh McRoberts, his 2016-17 salary leaves you only at a $5.8 million starting point for a trade.

Heat owner hints at Chris Bosh return

In a letter emailed Thursday night to Miami Heat season-ticket holders to coincide with the release of the team’s 2016-17 schedule and also posted on the team’s website, Heat owner Micky Arison hinted at a return by All-Star forward Chris Bosh while focusing on where the franchise stands. Toward the close of the email, Arison wrote: “What won’t change is the culture of this organization. The Miami HEAT is a Championship organization. I fully expect this team, from Pat Riley to Head Coach Erik Spoelstra, to our veterans Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Goran Dragic and Josh McRoberts, to our returning young core of Hassan Whiteside, Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson, to the fresh faces joining the HEAT Family to continue our mantra of being the ‘hardest working, best conditioned, most professional, unselfish, toughest, meanest, nastiest team in the NBA.’ ”
