  • Clifford considers Hibbert's O underrated?
    Coach Steve Clifford considers Roy Hibbert's offense underrated.

    Advice: Maybe it is underrated, but it's still rated very, very low. Hibbert's 12.9 usage rate last season shattered his previous career low (19.4) and he's still only managed a 51.1 true shooting percentage in his career. On top of that, the seven-footer ranked just 20th percentile in post-up plays among all players (per Synergy). All that said, if Hibbert can protect the rim like he did in his Indiana days, he'll get playing time. Fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:46 pm
  • Drummond says he'll win rebound crown again
    Andre Drummond said he's going to win the rebounding crown again this season.

    Advice: Drummond also said he's "shed about 20 pounds" this summer. He's easily the favorite to finish first in boards again with his league-leading 14.8 boards per game last year. What's more, he led the NBA in boards per game in all but one month last year -- DeAndre Jordan was first in January. Nobody will question Drummond on the glass, but the 23-year-old big man really needs to improve on his shooting. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:36 pm
  • Ivica Zubac putting on muscle quickly
    Lakers strength coach Tim DiFrancesco said Ivica Zubac has "already added some muscle fairly quickly."

    Advice: Rookie Muscle Watch is on. DiFrancesco added plenty of positives on the Croatian big man, saying he's a fast learner and has very good movement for a guy his size. Zubac showed some impressive shot blocking at Summer League to go with some offensive skills. It's not too crazy to think the second-round pick gets minutes this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:56 pm
  • Zeller calls last season a 'frustrating' one
    Tyler Zeller called his 2015-16 "frustrating" due to inconsistent playing time.

    Advice: If that's the case, we're not sure why he re-signed with Boston. Despite paying him $8M for the 2016-17 campaign, Zeller isn't guaranteed anything with Al Horford now entrenched in the starting lineup and the Celtics having a multitude of options on the roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:41 pm
  • Ainge needs to see more from Kelly Olynyk
    Danny Ainge implied that he needs to see more from Kelly Olynyk this season than he has shown in the past.

    Advice: Olynyk connected on a surprising 40.5 percent of his three-point attempts last season, but his game-to-game performance too often fluctuated and it resulted in making KO an unreliable part of Boston's rotation. Now that Al Horford is a Celtic, it's hard to see how Olynyk—who is still fighting to recover from shoulder surgery—makes a meaningful impact in standard fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
  • Whiteside feels chemistry is coming w/ Dragic
    Hassan Whiteside is confident that his chemistry with Goran Dragic will continue to improve.

    Advice: "Each game me and Goran got better. He’s easy to talk to. He’s a really good point guard. As the season went on, me and Goran understood each other better," Whiteside said. "[This] year is going to be even bigger. More of me and Goran communicating on that basketball level and getting to know each other better." There is a huge onus on Whiteside and Dragic to step up and lead without Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh in the picture, and those two players will be relied upon to lead Miami's offensive charge for the foreseeable future.

  • McGary hints at reason for second suspension
    Mitch McGary said that he did not fully comply with the structure of the NBA's drug program, and that's what resulted in his 10-game suspension.

    Advice: McGary is suspended for a total of 15 games, but he got an additional 10 on top of the five that had already been in place for some time. "I'm in the drug program for failing the drug test and to be compliant, you have to take a certain amount of tests, and I did not do that," McGary said. "I would love to stay here and play here with new guys coming in; it would be very tough for me to get minutes here," McGary said. The big man would have been buried even without the suspensions, and now his time off could result in his release from the roster. "I don't want to let this define me as a player," McGary added. If that's the case, he needs to make some real changes immediately and commit to being a professional. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:56 pm

  • Miami Heat release statement on Chris Bosh
    The Miami Heat have released an official statement on Chris Bosh stating that the team is unable to clear him to take the court.

    Advice: "The Miami HEAT and Chris Bosh, in consultation with team doctors and other physicians, have been working together for many months with the mutual goal of having Chris return to the court as soon as possible. Chris has now taken his pre-season physical. The Miami HEAT regret that it remains unable to clear Chris to return to basketball activities, and there is no timetable for his return. We are not able to comment further in light of Article XXII, Section 3(e) of the NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement, which precludes a team from releasing certain medical information without a player's consent." Bosh remains hopeful that he'll be able to play in the NBA again, but as has been the case since last season, there remain more questions than answers and the search for clarity is again clouded by fog.

  • Joakim Noah (shoulder) not facing restriction
    Joakim Noah (shoulder) is not expected to have any kind of minute restrictions when training camp begins next week.

    Advice: After appearing in just 29 games last season, Noah is fully healed and clearly motivated to silence a lot of critics and doubters. We like the on-paper fit in New York, but the charismatic center has to prove he can stay on the floor and be effective after signing a massive four-year, $72M deal this summer.

  • Festus Ezeli (knee) has no timeline to return
    Festus Ezeli (knee) has no timeline to return to action.

    Advice: "I personally don't have a timeline," he said. "I'm taking it day by day because when it comes to this situation, you never go with a timeline. It will frustrate me if I go by a timeline. I just try to take it by how I feel so hopefully sometime soon I can get back on the court and start playing again." The big man did say that his knee is "getting better," but "it's gonna take a little bit for me to get to where I'm a 100 percent." The ongoing knee issues helps to explain why Ezeli's free agent market didn't develop like so many anticipated, and it's currently unclear when he may be able to get onto the court for his new team. As a result, Portland will be forced to lean a little harder on Mason Plumlee and Ed Davis. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:47 am
  • Anthony Davis doing 'virtually' everything
    Anthony Davis (knee surgery) did "virtually" everything in the Pelicans first practice, and added that he's feeling "great" as the team heads into training camp.

    Advice: Given AD dealt with both knee and shoulder problems last season, this is certainly an encouraging start, especially since Davis said his shoulder feels "stronger than it's ever been." That being said, the big man remains one of the biggest—if not the biggest—risk vs. reward players in fantasy due to his injury history and price point in drafts. He has never played 70 games in any NBA season, and he'll again be the focal point on every opposing team's scouting report as the Pelicans prepare to enter the season shorthanded without Jrue Holiday (personal) or Tyreke Evans (knee surgery). As an aside, Davis said he "never" plans to leave New Orleans and wants to bring a title to Bourbon Street. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:30 am
  • Asik hoping to bounce back this year
    Omer Asik said he's hoping to bounce back after dealing with back, calf and ankle issues last season.

    Advice: "I just kept playing through things," Asik said. "But injuries just happened over and over. That’s why I tried to focus on getting stronger, so I won’t face those problems again. I worked all summer to get healthy. Right now, I’m feeling great, much better than last year." He was brutal last season to put it nicely, and it's possible he could lose his starting job to Alexis Ajinca. The Pelicans would also be wise to use Anthony Davis at center in smaller lineups, so Asik will need a tremendous camp in order to hold onto his role. Don't draft him. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:10 am
  • Magic GM says frontcourt will sort itself out
    Magic GM Rob Hennigan said there should be enough minutes for Bismack Biyombo, Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic this season.

    Advice: "We made it a priority this summer to ensure that we have competition at all positions across the board," Hennigan said. "We see that as a healthy dynamic and as something that will make all of our players better." The frontcourt is very crowded, and while Vucevic is a possible trade candidate, the good news for all three players is that Aaron Gordon will see the bulk of his minutes at SF. Biyombo should at least see minutes in the mid-20s considering the size of his paycheck, so he's worth a look for owners targeting boards and blocks. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:55 am
  • Keith Benson signs camp deal with Heat
    Keith Benson has signed a training camp deal with the Heat.

    Advice: Benson will be the 20th player on the Heat's training camp roster. Benson was also with the Heat in camp last season, but his chances of making the team will be slightly better due to the uncertainty around Chris Bosh (blood clots). Rotoworld.com Today, 7:37 am
  • Chris Bosh remains hopeful to play again
    Chris Bosh (blood clots) remains hopeful that he will be able to play again.

    Advice: After failing his physical for the Miami Heat, Bosh received a second opinion from the NBA that agreed with the Heat's findings. Doctors found evidence of "some continued clotting" which would make it too risky for him to play, and he is still considered out indefinitely. His NBA career could be over, but he's not giving up hope just yet and said "it wasn't a matter of if I'm going to play again, but when." The Heat will have to rely on Justise Winslow a ton right out of the gate, while Derrick Williams, James Johnson, Josh McRoberts and Luke Babbitt all have a chance to earn significant minutes.

  • Nikola Pekovic highly doubtful to play again?
    Nikola Pekovic (foot) is "highly doubtful" to play again in the NBA, according to the AP's Jon Krawczynski.

    Advice: This report also confirmed Pekovic will not play this season, and insurance will cover the Wolves on Pek's contract. He has one year and about $12 million left on his deal, so there might be some sort of buyout agreement. He's 30 years old and has played just 43 games combined in the last two seasons.

  • Kevin Garnett announces retirement
    Kevin Garnett officially announced his retirement from the NBA on Friday.

    Advice: No. 21 is done after 21 seasons and proved to us all anything is possible. He revolutionized the position at power forward and was one of the best defenders ever during his prime. Over his career, he averaged 17.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals per game. Garnett also has 12 All-Defensive Team nods and 15 All-Star selections to go with his MVP in 2004 and championship in 2008. There is no press conference scheduled at the time of this announcement.

  • Mitch McGary not sure on playing time
    Mitch McGary said it's "going to be hard to get minutes" for the Thunder this season.

    Advice: He's not going to get any minutes in the first 15 games due to a suspension. McGary admitted he messed up and said he just wants to play basketball again. He's not a lock to make the team. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:33 pm
    Injured
  • Taylor: Pekovic won't play for MIN this year
    Owner Glen Taylor said Nikola Pekovic (foot) will not play for the Wolves this season and the team may buy him out.

    Advice: This isn't surprising to hear as the Tom Thibodeau era takes over. Pekovic just can't stay healthy anymore and it's already been announced he won't be ready to start camp. If he's bought out, another team might pick him up as a third center. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:15 pm

  • Report: Kevin Garnett expected to retire
    Kevin Garnett and the Timberwolves came to a buyout agreement Friday and a retirement announcement from Garnett is expected shortly, according to Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune.

    Advice: The 40-year-old is a no-brainer Hall of Fame player and will join Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan as arguably the best class ever. Garnett will end his career ranking 17th on the all-time scoring list, 10th on the all-time rebounds list and among the elite for the other stats among big men. On top of his MVP in 2003-04 and championship in 2008, KG is one of a kind for his energy and emotion. His retirement announcement will be must-see TV. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:00 pm

  • Alexis Ajinca confidently says he'll start
    Alexis Ajinca sounded confident when asked about the possibility of being the starter at center.

    Advice: "I will be a starter this year. You'll see," Ajinca said. He would have to beat out Omer Asik, which isn't too hard based on how the Pelicans haven't fared well with him on the court. For what it's worth, the Pelicans had a plus-8.7 net rating with Ajinca and Antohny Davis lineups and a minus-7.5 net rating with Davis and Asik. Regardless, there's no need to be too aggressive in drafting any Pelican big besides The Brow. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:19 pm
  • Muscle Watch Houston: Capela up 10-12 pounds
    Clint Capela said he's added 10-12 pounds this offseason.

    Advice: He's likely headed for a big bump in minutes as the rim protector on what should be the NBA fastest team. The added size should help him on the low block, especially next to some iffy perimeter defenders. Capela's best monthly average for minutes per game in his career was 23.5 in December, so he's looking at a bit more than he's used to. The 22-year-old big man should be a solid source for blocks and boards, but his awful foul shooting hurts his value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:03 pm
  • Woj: Bosh's career with Heat is likely over
    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Heat increasingly believe that Chris Bosh's career with the franchise is over.

    Advice: Woj adds that Bosh hasn't spoken with Pat Riley in months, and it's no secret that the two sides have had their fair share of disagreements regarding Bosh's health. The 32-year-old forward recently failed another physical because doctors found evidence of "some continued clotting," and while the Heat simply said that he has no timetable for a return, his NBA career could be over. The Heat are hopeful to get a meeting with Bosh soon to discuss his future. This story is just heating up, so check back for updates throughout the week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:46 am

  • Chris Bosh fails physical, career in jeopardy
    Chris Bosh has failed his physical and will not be cleared for training camp according to Tim Reynolds of the AP.

    Advice: An additional report by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald indicates that doctors have found evidence of "some continued clotting" which is believed to be related to one of two previous episodes. While the complication is not life-threatening if treated, playing with the condition is considered "unrealistic." It's currently unclear if Bosh will attempt to play again, but he is not expected to file a grievance with the union or push to return in the immediate future. His career is in serious jeopardy and his chances of playing again in the NBA appear to be slim. Justise Winslow, Derrick Williams and James Johnson will have to step up. For what it's worth, the Heat continue to say that Bosh has no timetable for a return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:45 am
    Injured
  • Kosta Koufos available in trade talks
    According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, Kosta Koufos is a trade candidate.

    Advice: A report by ESPN in early August suggested that Koufos could be moved as well, so this makes sense considering how much frontcourt depth the Kings have. It also helps that Koufos is on the books for about $8 million per year over the next two seasons, a very reasonable contract under the new salary cap. A move away from Sacramento could be good for his fantasy value, but his upside is low and he averaged just 6.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game last season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:28 am
  • Festus Ezeli confirms he's won't be ready
    Festus Ezeli (knee) said he's disappointed he won't be ready to play at the beginning of training camp.

    Advice: The former Warrior did add he expects to be ready soon after. Ezeli had his left knee injected with bone marrow aspirate concentrate on Aug. 23 and was expected to miss six weeks, so he should be ready before the middle of October. He's still only going to be a backup for the Blazers this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:27 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) will be ready for camp
    Tiago Splitter (hip surgery) will be ready for training camp according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

    Advice: "With Tiago, everyone is really happy with his progress," Budenholzer said. "With the hip, if you are just talking specifically about the hip, everybody feels like it couldn’t be going much better. Now, it’s getting all the muscles and everything that goes into being ready to play up to speed. We are expecting him to participate in camp, maybe not at 100 percent participation but significant." This also means Splitter should be ready for opening night where he will see minutes in the teens backing up Dwight Howard off the bench. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:39 am
  • Presti: McGary will get a chance at camp
    Thunder GM Sam Presti confirmed that Mitch McGary will be at training camp.

    Advice: He's reportedly on the roster bubble and has been suspended for the first 15 games of the season for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy for the second time. "He’ll be with us in training camp with an opportunity to compete," Presti said. "All that being said, I think it’s going to be a competitive camp. We’ve got probably more deserving players lined up to come to camp than we have roster spots." The Thunder brought in Ersan Ilyasova and Domantas Sabonis, so McGary won't be looking at minutes in OKC if he sticks around. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:12 am

  • Vogel intends to develop Vucevic defensively
    Magic head coach Frank Vogel said he intends to teach Nikola Vucevic the proper angles on defense and the "verticality rule."

    Advice: "So I don't want to come in and say that Vooch is going to become Roy Hibbert," Vogel said. "But I think Vooch can be a lot better than he's been. And I think some of those lessons we learned with Roy will apply to Vooch and how we use him and what he's being asked to do." The Magic brought in Bismack Biyombo and Serge Ibaka to provide some rim protection, but Vucevic's outlook will significantly improve if he makes strides on the defensive end because he's already their top option on offense right now. We'd like him better if Biyombo wasn't around and he could be a trade candidate, but grabbing him in the early middle rounds still makes sense. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:16 am
  • Pelicans sign Robert Sacre to camp deal
    The Pelicans have signed Robert Sacre to a training camp deal.

    Advice: The Pelicans' biggest weakness is at center with Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca in town, but Sacre still projects to be third on the depth chart if he makes the final roster. There's no fantasy value here. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:23 am
  • Jazz sign Henry Sims to camp deal
    The Utah Jazz have officially signed Henry Sims.

    Advice: It's just a training camp deal for Sims, but it's worth noting that the Jazz already have two capable centers in Rudy Gobert and Jeff Withey, while Boris Diaw and Derrick Favors will likely spend time at the five as well. Sims likely won't make the final roster. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:59 am
  • Jeff Ayres signs with CSKA Moscow
    Jeff Ayres has signed with CSKA Moscow.

    Advice: Ayres spent the summer training with the Spurs, but the 29-year-old forward will be able to find a much larger role overseas than he would in the NBA. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:49 am

  • Brandan Wright (right knee) cleared for camp
    Grizzlies big man Brandan Wright (sprained right MCL) has been fully cleared for training camp.

    Advice: Last November, Wright exited with what the Grizzlies called "right knee tendinitis," but five weeks later he had arthroscopic surgery. When he returned to action in late February, he lasted only five game before suffering a season-ending MCL sprain in the same knee. Despite his per-minute upside, Wright's injury history and backup role ensure that he'll go undrafted in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:30 pm
  • Kevin Garnett, Wolves in serious buyout talks
    Kevin Garnett and the Wolves are reportedly in "serious buyout talks" to end Garnett's contract with Minnesota.

    Advice: KG is owed $8 million in the final year of his deal, but he's an afterthought in a frontcourt that includes Karl-Anthony Towns, Gorgui Dieng, Cole Aldrich, Jordan Hill, Nemanja Bjelica and potentially Nikola Pekovic. Garnett wasn't on the fantasy radar anyway, so this shouldn't affect any draft boards. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:32 pm

  • Chris Bosh 'can't wait' to get back on court
    Chris Bosh (blood clots) said that he's in "good spirits" and he "can't wait" to get back on the court.

    Advice: To be clear, the Miami medical staff has not officially cleared Bosh, but if he is not cleared, he has said that he'll take the issue to the players union. Bosh sounds determined to play, and he has found "respected doctors" that have said playing while on a blood thinning medication that would be out of his system by game-time could be an option, and Miami is reportedly warming up to this idea. Still, there's too much unknown here to risk anything more than a late-round selection on the 11-time All-Star. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:30 am

  • Chris Bosh was told his career may be over
    Chris Bosh said in his documentary Rebuilt that the Miami medical staff told him his career was "probably over" last winter when he was diagnosed with a second blood clot.

    Advice: Bosh has been fighting that diagnosis since he got it, and it's worth noting that in recent weeks the Miami medical staff has warmed up to the idea of Bosh playing while taking blood thinners. He has been working out for the past couple months, although he still hasn't officially been cleared to take contact, and that decision won't be made until the medical staff has time to analyze the result of his physicals. If Bosh is not cleared by Miami, he's expected to pursue the issue with the NBPA. There's early round upside here, but the uncertainty of the situation makes it tough to justify looking his way until the later rounds. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:18 am
    Injured
  • Chris Bosh going through physicals with Miami
    Chris Bosh (blood clots) is reportedly going through physicals with the Heat, although the Miami franchise has not made any comments on whether he's passed those physicals or otherwise.

    Advice: Bosh recently stated that he's "ready to play," and there's reportedly "growing optimism" that he'll be able to take the court next season, so there's enough here to justify taking the plunge on Bosh towards the later rounds given his early-round upside. If Bosh is able to take the court this season, expect his usage rate to be closer to 30 with Dwyane Wade now in Chicago. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:27 am
    Injured
  • Nikola Pekovic will not be ready for camp
    Tom Thibodeau said that Nikola Pekovic (foot) will not be ready to participate during training camp.

    Advice: Pekovic's career may be a wrap considering that he barely played in 12 games last season, and even with a full offseason to recover, he's still not ready. Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng are the future in Minnesota, and guys like Cole Aldrich and Jordan Hill will be picking up most of the reserve minutes for the Wolves, so there's really no reason to draft Pek in any setting. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 am

  • Olynyk (shoulder) iffy for start of season
    Kelly Olynyk's recovery from shoulder surgery could "spill into the regular season" according to Celtics reporter A. Sherrod Blakely.

    Advice: His timetable for a return is sometime next month, so it sounds like he could miss a large portion of training camp. Blakely adds that teams won't be pursuing Olynyk until he proves he is healthy, but said that the big man could be an interesting trade piece for the Celtics given the depth of their frontcourt. His workload will probably be limited to minutes in the lower 20s with Al Horford and Amir Johnson around, so Olynyk's fantasy outlook isn't promising. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:38 am
  • Porzingis says he loves Noah's intensity
    Kristaps Porzingis said that he loves Joakim Noah's intensity.

    Advice: "That’s the type of guy that we want on our team," Porzingis said of Noah. "He brings that good energy. He brings that spirit, you know? So from the first opportunity that we got to talk, I fell in love with [his intensity]." Porzingis also added that Noah is in great shape, so it sounds like he will hit the ground running in camp after recovering from left shoulder surgery. Noah isn't very durable and is 31 years old, so he should be available at a discount this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:29 am
  • Mitch McGary's suspension is for 15 games
    Mitch McGary's suspension will be for 15 games.

    Advice: He violated the NBA's anti-drug policy for the second time and will now have to enter a drug program and pay the fine. McGary was already considered to be on the roster bubble in OKC, so don't be surprised if the Thunder part ways with the forward. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:40 am

  • Nikola Vucevic looks good in Euro qualifier
    Nikola Vucevic posted 17 points and eight rebounds during a loss to Georgia on Saturday.

    Advice: Vucevic's Montenegro team already qualified for the Euro tournament, so the loss didn't hurt. He finished the tournament averaging 15.7 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists. It's going to be very interesting to see how Vooch fits in with the Magic adding Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo. He's still a fine pick in the early middle rounds. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:05 pm
  • Clifford: Hibbert could add new dimension
    Hornets coach Steve Clifford feels Roy Hibbert could add a "dimension" to the team that they have not had prior.

    Advice: "He’s a basket-protector, but he can also play offense. If he gets anywhere near what he was at Indiana, he gives us a dimension we haven’t had," Clifford said. The head coach also believes that Hibbert is a better offensive player than he gets credit for, and he's landed in the right spot for an opportunity to revive his career given he's got just Cody Zeller ahead of him on the depth chart. Having said that, Hibbert looked awful during his one-and-done Lakers tenure last season, but perhaps another fresh start with a coaching staff that includes both Clifford and Patrick Ewing will be just what the big man needs to find his confidence again. We wouldn't bet on it, though. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:36 pm
  • Walton says Zubac has developed the skyhook
    Luke Walton is pleased with the progress Ivica Zubac has made with his skyhook.

    Advice: Zubac is a big body with an impressive touch and feel for the game at such a young age—he's only 19 years old—and it's become clear that he has the potential to enjoy a very bright future in the NBA. He's not on the fantasy radar for now, but the Lakers have to be thrilled that they snagged him in the second round while other NBA teams are left wondering how he wasn't rated higher on their draft boards.

  • Chris Bosh says he's ready to play
    On Uninterrupted's Open Run Podcast, Chris Bosh said he is "ready to play."

    Advice: "We’ve been talking about it for a long time," Bosh said. "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. I’ve done all work. I’ve done what I need to do working with the doctors." On top of this, the Miami Herald reports, "the expectation is that the Heat will clear Bosh to play, although the timetable isn't determined, and it's unclear whether he would be available for every game." It would appear Bosh is more likely than ever to suit up for at least some action this season, but nothing is a lock at this point. For fantasy, it makes sense to roll the dice on Bosh once the high-upside, high-demand players come off the board. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:12 am

  • Haslem expects Bosh to be active at camp
    Udonis Haslem said that he expects Chris Bosh to be an active participant during training camp.

"I’m not sure if it will be full contact or by himself or if he needs me to work extra with him or whatever the situation may be, but I’m expecting him to be there." Bosh has recently posted some videos of himself working out, although he's still yet to take contact and the Miami medical staff is still debating whether or not it's safe for him to play while on blood thinning medication.
