Heat's union rep Amar'e Stoudemire said Chris Bosh's health is what Players Association is 'most concerned with'

TORONTO -- Chris Bosh left Air Canada Center after the Heat's overtime victory Tuesday night with his wife Adrienne at his side and team president Pat Riley not far behind.

Outside of saying hello to a few reporters, Bosh had nothing else to say Tuesday. Really, he doesn't have to.

It's obvious now he wants back on the court and the Heat as a team aren't letting him because team doctors and his doctors aren't seeing eye-to-eye on when it will be safe for him to play again.

While that battle continues behind the scenes, Amar'e Stoudemire, the Heat's player rep, did answer a couple questions about Tuesday's Deadspin report that the National Basketball Players Association was now involved in the matter.

"I think what we're most concerned with is his health," Stoudemire said. "Health is by far the most important aspect in this situation. We just have to make sure that the doctor's orders are followed for his situation."

Stoudemire said Bosh, who hasn't played since the All-Star break, hasn't asked any players on the team to intervene.

"We haven't spoken to him about it," Stoudemire said. "But I'm sure he wants to play. That's what we do -- the players union. We're here to help. But we've got to make the right decision."
