Bosh’s availability for the start of training camp indicates that he is no longer on blood-thinner medication.
Erik Spoelstra got to take plenty of trips during the offseason, met with coaches from other sports to discuss philosophies, even had the time to surprise his mom by showing up for Mother’s Day.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says he spent time this summer looking back at what went wrong last season, completing what he called “an autopsy” of Miami’s first year without a playoff appearance since 2008.

“You know, I was experiencing a lot of shortness of breath due to the fluid in my lungs”. If healthy, a starting lineup of Hassan Whiteside, Chris Bosh, Wade, Deng and Dragic can go toe-to-toe with any in the league. The 33-year-old guard has put a lot of wear on his tires over his career and is still at his best as a ball-dominant player, so the best way to maintain his effectiveness is to keep him fresh.

Also expected back for camp is forward Josh McRoberts, who missed almost the entire 2014-15 season after knee surgery. We were all instrumental in bringing him here, and that was for a reason. And the Heat added veteran forward Amare Stoudemire and rookie forward Justise Winslow from Duke.
“That’s the most important thing about that is it affects so many people”, he said, “I’m sure we all in this room know somebody in our lives that had issues with blood clots”.
