Found May 01, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade missed Game 4 of the team's opening-round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks due to a knee injury. Even without Wade, the Heat completed the sweep of the Bucks, and now the All-Star has additional time to rest his ailing knee. While some are questioning the impact the injury will have on the rest of the playoffs, Heat forward Chris Bosh told Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida that he doesn't believe the ailment is "anything to be concerned about."“I don’t think it’s anything to be concerned about,’’ Bosh said. “I think we’ve been in positions like this before. We’re very comfortable playing with making sure he’s getting where he needs to be, to be as close to 100 percent. We just have to keep playing. And he has to get healthy.’’The knee injury sidelined Wade for seven games late in the season. By that point, the Heat had already clinched the top spot in the East, so they could afford to rest him.After going up 3-0 on the Bucks, Miami again took an opportunity to rest Wade. It paid off, and now he'll get roughly a week off before Round 2 begins.Wade has vowed to be ready for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, and there's been little doubt that he would require additional time off due to the knee. It's a scary though that the Heat might actually have room to improve with Wade getting healthier when it matters most.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
