Bosh was diagnosed with the issue over the weekend as fears grew over his health while the Heat ruled him out for the rest of the season.
With the recent passing of Jerome Kersey due to the same issue, it was a scary time for Bosh, his family and the organisation as a whole, but fortunately it appears as though he is on the mend.
All signs currently point to the 30-year-old making a full recovery, and Spoelstra told the media on Monday that he’s optimistic that he won’t be in hospital for much longer.
Spoelstra said he expects Bosh to be released from the hospital, "soon. I don't have an exact date."

NBA commissioner Adam Silver also sent his best wishes to Bosh and his family as he conceded that it was welcome news to hear that his condition was improving. While basketball has become of secondary importance over the past week, Silver is confident that the two-time NBA champion will get back to full strength for next season.
Given the severity of the issue, Bosh will continue to take medication and avoid physical activity for a number of months until the lung has completely cleared.
It is expected that he will be able to return in time for training camp later in the year, but for now the focus will be on ensuring that he continues to recover as planned and gets back to full health before returning to the court.
