When Dwyane Wade was healthy last season, the Heat went on a 27 game winning streak, and it showed how dangerous they can really be at full strength. When the playoffs rolled around, Wade looked hurt, and played about as bad as we’ve ever seen him play. That almost cost the Heat a shot at another title, so they are understandably being cautious with their star.
Wade has missed the last 2 games for the Heat, and it looks like he is ready to return, according to the Sun Sentinel:
Of course, guard Dwyane Wade is expected back for Saturday’s game, after missing the past two games to deal with his balky knees, affording him a six-day break since his abbreviated appearance Saturday against the Charlotte Bobcats.
This is good for the Heat, but it’s about the playoffs for them, not the regular season. The Heat have started to look like themselves as late, so being cautious with Wade hasn’t been effecting them. I think we all want Wade to be fully healthy again.
