There are some questions about Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade’s availability for tonight’s Game 5 against the Chicago Bulls because of his injured knee, but the team received a positive sign Wednesday morning. While it does not mean that Wade will be active for the potential close out game, he was able to participate in the morning shootaround.
Wade is officially being called a game-time decision, so we will not know exactly what the team has planned until later this evening.
If Wade is able to go, the Heat would certainly welcome him to the line-up as they look to advance and eliminate the Bulls from the postseason. But if there is any concern about his knee moving forward, the team would be wise to rest him.
Chicago hasn’t put up much of a fight since Game 1 of the series and they are no match for Miami with or without Wade.
