PLAYERS: Dwyane Wade
TEAMS: Miami Heat
Early on last season, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was posting impressive totals. He looked like the Dwyane Wade of old as the Heat were clicking on all cylinders. However, toward the end of the season, Miami, and Wade, slowed down. For his part, Wade is optimistic regarding his health moving forward, telling Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald that he has no reason to believe his knees will present lingering issues for the remainder of his career.“I don’t worry about it because I’ve dealt with so many different injuries since I was young and I’ve always bounced back and found a way to be the player you guys have seen,” he said Friday morning at the Westin Diplomat before overseeing his fantasy basketball camp. “I’ve seen it work with my body before. I’m confident it will. My skills haven’t diminished. I’m not done yet.”Wade was largely limited in the playoffs with his knee problems. His style of play has his body seemingly much older than the 31 years he’s been on this earth. He doesn’t believe he’ll need to have his minutes limited early on in the 2013-14 season to ensure he’s healthy down the stretch and into the playoffs.While Wade is confident in his body and production moving forward, others are not. It will be telling to see how the veteran handles another long season. He’s expected to look fresh and perhaps like his old self early on, but it’s to be determined how he does as the season wears on and the playoffs approach.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
