Heat president Pat Riley: 'No resolution' to Chris Bosh situation

Why NBA teams aren't sold on Chris Bosh's comeback.

Things still aren't great between the Heat and Chris Bosh.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Miami president Pat Riley did little to address the team's situation with Bosh and declined to say if they would give him the boot to make more salary cap room.

"Down the road we don't have Chris' services," Riley said, via the Sun-Sentinel.

Bosh, 33, wasn't allowed to return to the team after he failed a physical during the preseason. He has dealt with blood clots for the past three years, causing him to miss the bulk of the Heat's games in 2014-15 and 2015-16. He did not play at all in the 2016-17 season.

"It's been discussed enough and it's being discussed, but there's no resolution to it right now," Riley said."I think in due time it will run its course and take care of itself. But I can't give you (a) definitive answer."

If the Heat do decide to cut Bosh, they will be responsible for the final two seasons of his contract andinsurance.

Bosh is still trying to make a comeback, sayingSunday that he is "still anathlete" and this is not how he wants his career to end.

"Look, there isn't anybody in this organization that feels worse for C.B. than I do. It got a little sideways at the end because of feelings and things of that nature," Riley said."There has been conversations with the organization and with Chris personally. I'll leave that at that."
