Bosh travels to Toronto for Game 1 of conference semifinal

TORONTO (AP) Miami forward Chris Bosh is in Toronto for the Heat's opening game of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Raptors but remains on the inactive list.

Bosh has expressed a desire to return to action after missing the final 29 games of the regular season and Miami's first-round victory over Charlotte. The 11-time All-Star has not played since a blood clot was found in his left calf during February's All-Star break in Toronto. It's the second consecutive year Bosh's regular season has ended because of a clot detected over All-Star weekend.

Bosh did not travel to Canada with the rest of the team. The Heat have not offered a reason for Bosh's continued absence.

Bosh attended all three of Miami's games in Charlotte during the opening round.
