MIAMI, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- While the Big Three no longer wear the same jersey, its chemistry remains.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James proved that after practice Wednesday, when he stood behind his friend and former Miami Heat teammate Chris Bosh.

"There's nothing really I can say to make things better for him," James told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I texted him today and told him I was sorry and I hate that he has to go through this again."

"Guy means so much to not only the Heat family but his personal family as well. Just a great guy, a professional, a great guy and for something like this to happen to him after he was cleared, it just sucks. It sucks big time. His health is the No. 1 care and obviously basketball comes secondary to what he's going through right now. It's just tough."

Bosh, 31, was set to play in the All-Star Game last week, but pulled out after a "strained right calf" injury.

Bosh is back on "blood thinners to treat clotting in his calf," according to the Miami Herald. Bosh had tests Monday and is out indefinitely, though a full recovery is expected.

Dwyane Wade and James joined Bosh in 2010 to form the Big Three. The trio triumphed in two NBA Championships in four years.

Wade posted a photo Wednesday on Instagram with the caption: "23 combine AllStars.. I would say we are pretty good.. I haven't met many as tough as @chrisbosh #heatnation#ibelieve."

Bosh was selected No. 4 in the 2003 NBA Draft. James was selected first in that same draft, while Wade was taken with the No. 5 pick.

In 13 seasons for the Toronto Raptors and Heat, Bosh has averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
