Heat rule Bosh out for remainder of play-offs


Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh has been ruled out for the remainder of the NBA play-offs.

The Heat announced on Wednesday that Bosh - who has been out since February 9 - will remain on the sidelines during the post-season.

Bosh was initially diagnosed with a calf strain back in February, but his history with blood clots has reportedly been a concern for the team and physicians.

The 32-year-old missed the second half of the 2014-15 season after suffering from blood clots. He ruled himself out of the play-offs last month. 

A Heat statement read: "The Heat, Chris, the doctors and medical team have been working together throughout this process and will continue to do so to return Chris to playing basketball as soon as possible."

Miami hold a 1-0 lead over the Toronto Raptors in the second round of the play-offs following Tuesday's 102-96 overtime win at the Air Canada Centre. Bosh has been traveling with the team during the post-season.
