It’s been a rough year (medically) for Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, but the team did what it could to preserve the health of the former Marquette talent and they hope the down time will provide them with a healthy wade as they open their postseason against the Charlotte Bobcats.
According to Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra, the team will have no medical restrictions on Wade as they enter the playoffs:
“I don’t have a restriction with him,” Spoelstra said, as the Heat completed playoff preparations Saturday. “So I don’t necessarily have a window, either.
“I’m going to read his body language; I’m going to read the game. I’m going to have communication constantly with him. But he’s cleared to play. So neither one of us want to put a restriction on it, but we’re also realistic and we’ll be smart about it.”
The Heat will obviously monitor Wade and if he looks uncomfortable or seems to be having issue, they’ll make the according move. But for now it appears pedal to the floor for Wade and the Heat as they attempt to defend their NBA title.
