NBPA releases statement on Chris Bosh, Miami Heat impasse

The players union has taken interest in Chris Bosh's conflict with the Miami Heat over whether he should be playing for the tea during its playoff run.

Multiple outlets reported Tuesday that the NBPA had issued a statement on the Bosh situation.

"Our top priority is Chris' health and well-being. We have spoken with Chris and his agent, and have reached out to the Miami Heat. We are hopeful that all parties involved can meet as soon as possible to resolve the situation," the statement read.

Dan Carson went into the history of the rift on Tuesday. Here's a little background:

The rift between Miami and Bosh began in February, when the Heat placed the 11-time All-Star on the inactive list indefinitely after he was diagnosed with a second blood clot. Bosh hasn't played since, despite repeatedly claiming he feels fine and is OK to play.

Now, Bosh is reportedly prepared to go to extreme lengths to get back on the court for Miami's Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Toronto Raptors.

Well, it appears they've stepped in. Now, ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports that the union has requested a meeting with the team to boot.

Stay tuned.
