Dwyane Wade managed to make his Wednesday start, but he was clearly off.  He was not able to play last night, though.  The Miami Heat star has a sprained left foot, and will need some time to recover.  The exact amount of time is still unknown, but the Heat and Wade hope it won't be long. Ethan Skolnick of the Palm Beach Post says Wade could miss Saturday's game as well.  The injury does not appear to be serious, but if he can sit out against the Phoenix Suns, Wade will ultimately get plenty of rest and hopefully be ready to return.  He will have sat out a full week if that's the case, and often there is nothing more that can be done for an injury like this aside from rest and time. The Heat were red-hot in the first few games of the season.  They have since cooled off a bit.  They had lost two straight including Wade's injury-limited game on Wednesday.  The took care of the Nuggets last night and still lead their division, but the team does not want to be without Wade much longer.Last season, Wade was hampered by a knee injury.  Of course, that season turned out alright, but Miami believes they can repeat with a healthy Wade playing all season long.  And they're right.  When that team is going at 100%, it's hard to imagine any team beating them in a best of seven series. Wade has averaged 25.0 points per game in his career.  This season, he has taken a step back early on, but he will likely bounce back.  So far in the 2012-13 season, Wade is averaging 16.9 points per game.

Eric Bledsoe Welcomes Dwyane Wade To The Block Party

There are so many great things about this play.  First Eric hustles back when most players would just let a two on none happen.

Great play for a young player that a lot of writers are high on.  I am a little surprised Dwyane Wade didn't call Bledsoe dirty or cheap after that block like he usually...
