Dwyane Wade has found himself hobbled and believes it is a result of pushing himself to play through a foot injury. Wade pushed aside the pain and gave it a go against the Los Angeles Clippers last Wednesday via the Sun Sentinel  D-Wade has always been a trooper and is no stranger to his fair share of basketball related injuries, but he really seems to regret this most recent decision to play despite the aggravation. “I didn’t do myself any justice playing in that (Clippers) game,” Wade said after Monday’s practice. “I could have used the extra rest, and maybe I could have been back by the Phoenix game on the road, or I really could be ready going into the game Wednesday (versus Milwaukee).” Sometimes the allure of just being on the court and helping your squad against another prime-time team is too much to resist for a competitor like Wade. The Clippers look to be a real contender in the early-goings of the 2012-13 season and Wade made the judgement call to be on the court against a team they could potentially face in the finals. “It was just a big game, and you want to play,”Wade said. “You look back and say to yourself, ‘Uh, maybe I shouldn’t have done that.’ But you make your mistakes and you learn from them.” As athletes playing through injury often do, Dwyane Wade will now deal with being day-to-day as his injury needs time to improve before you can expect to see the all-star at full playing strength. The injury was apparently caused by Wade stepping on teammate, Chris Bosh’s foot, as Wade attempted to split a double-team against the Houston Rockets. Wade spoke of the self-induced pressure to suit-up despite pain in his foot. “You’d like to say you’ve gotten smarter from it, but I’m 10 years in,” Wade said. “Sometimes I make the right decision, sometimes I haven’t. Everyone goes through something. You’ve just got to deal with it. Sometimes you can deal with it and play through it. Sometimes you’re hurting yourself even more. You’ve got to do what’s smart.” We hope to see Wade back on the court, and doing the things we expect to see from one of the league’s most exciting player, very soon. We know fantasy owners of Dwyane Wade cringe at the very though of heading into the trenches without their top pick for a few days or an entire week, but the dividends paid in the long-run should be worth the rest now.
