Bosh (blood clots) posted a series of workout videos on his personal Instagram account Monday that suggested he's ready to play again, ESPN.com's Michael Wallace reports. "I know I've been gone for a moment, but now I'm back," Bosh said in one of the videos. "Everybody is always asking me, 'Am I hooping?' Yes, I'm hooping. I'm a hooper.'"
Kessel (hand) was originally expected to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 campaign after offseason hand surgery, however that now appears to be in doubt, Josh Yohe of DK on Pittsburgh Sports reports. "At this point, based on where he's tracking, yes (he'll be able to start the season on time)," GM Jim Rutherford said. "But with surgery like that, you can't say 100 percent for sure. But even if it's not for the start of the season, it wouldn't be that much time."
