The Heat believe that Chris Bosh’s career is over. They are moving on. There’s no plan to release him, and there was talk in October about a comeback attempt in 2017-18.

But the Miami Herald reports that the Heat do in fact have plans to release Bosh, if he is not cleared by an independent doctor agreed upon by the league and the NBPA, which would then allow them to clear his deal off the salary cap going forward, moving a huge chunk off their cap status.
