MIAMI (AP) – The Miami Heat say Chris Bosh has failed his physical and is not being cleared for training camp.

It’s a major blow to the All-Star’s comeback plans and a decision that will likely add to the tension between the team and its highest-paid player. Bosh has had each of his last two seasons end at the All-Star break after the discovery of blood clots.

The Heat say they “regret that it remains unable to clear Chris to return to basketball activities, and there is no timetable for his return. ”

The Heat also said the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement keeps them from commenting further, citing a rule that “precludes a team from releasing certain medical information without a player’s consent.”
