Bosh working out, vows to play

MIAMI — Chris Bosh is back on the basketball court, hinting that he plans to try playing for the Heat again this season.

Bosh released a video Monday on Snapchat of his non-contact workout. It's the first time this offseason that he has revealed doing any on-court work, and it remains unknown if he has been medically cleared to resume full workouts after blood clots cut short each of his past two seasons.

"I know I've been gone for a moment but now I'm back," Bosh said on the video, a part of which was later posted to Twitter. "Everybody is always asking me, 'Am I hoopin'?' Yes, I'm hoopin.' Absolutely. I'm a hooper."

It's unknown if Bosh, 32, is still on blood thinners to treat his clots. Typically, athletes in contact sports such as basketball are discouraged from playing while on blood thinners.
