Bosh was expecting to go through a light workout last night for the first time since pulling himself from the fourth quarter of a Feb. 4 home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. But even after staying off his feet for the entire all-star game break, he wasn't sure about being able to play tomorrow against the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Air Canada Centre.
"It's okay. It's one of those things it's hard to tell," Bosh
said of his knee last Sunday. "You have your bad days; you have your good days. Walking around, it's hard to tell. You never can tell until you start running and stuff like that. Hopefully, we can get after it and see how it feels."
Bosh has missed considerable time in his career with knee problems, though the precise nature of them has always been held close the vest. This time, the club called Bosh's injury a sprain, indicating a sudden event, but Bosh
said that wasn't the case.
"I have no idea. I don't know man. It's doctor talk," he said when asked for a more precise diagnosis. "It was more a buildup of scar tissue or something like that. It something that happened over time, it just didn't happen right away. I had swelling on it and stuff."
He said his problems with the knee date to mid-January.
"I was having problems with it and eventually my body just shut it down," he said. "[It started bothering me] a couple of weeks before."
Bosh said his current knee troubles won't require surgery: "That's the last thing I want to do. It hasn't been recommended. I would seek alternative measures."
But he added it won't likely feel entirely comfortable until the off-season.
