MIAMI – Heat forward Chris Bosh will return to basketball activities in September.

The team released a statement Monday saying that Bosh will be re-evaluated this month.

If cleared, he can begin regular exercise with plans to start strength training next month.

Bosh will make his return to the American Airlines Arena on Monday night.

Unfortunately, he still won't be able to suit up with his teammates.

Bosh, whose season ended after being diagnosed with blood clots in his lung, is set to address the media before the Heat tipoff against the Boston Celtics.

After being hospitalized for almost a week, Bosh continues his rehabilitation at home.

Although Bosh is out for the season, his long-term prognosis for recovery is said to be good.

On Monday morning, the All-Star tweeted out a picture of the thousands of get well cards the Heat sent to show their support.
