MIAMI – According to an ESPN report, there is fear in the Heat organization about Chris Bosh's ability to return to the court.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst cites several sources within the Heat organization that fear Bosh will not be cleared to play by team doctors. 

Bosh has been sidelined since the All-Star break.

Neither Bosh nor the Heat have said specifically what his medical ailment is.

However, last season, Bosh was hospitalized with blood clots in his lung.

Bosh and the Heat released a joint statement during the playoffs saying that the All-Star would not return to action for the rest of the Heat's playoff run.

Windhorst reports that the ultimate concern is that Bosh would be forced into medical retirement.

The Heat were eliminated from the playoffs by the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semis.
