Found June 01, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Instead of the big three for the Miami Heat it’s looked more like LeBron James and role players this postseason, similar to his days with the Cleveland Cavaliers. One of the main reasons for this has been Dwyane Wade’s ailing knee, something that he told reporters yesterday has made it difficult for him to continue playing.“Very tough, but I can’t sit at home,” Wade said, when asked how difficult it was for him to continue to push through his knee injury. “I have to come in and I have to do what I can every day and every night to help my team win.”Wade had a solid regular season, averaging over 20 points per game while helping the Heat finish with the best record in the NBA. However, he’s struggled mightily through the playoffs, as 20-point games have been few and far between.Still, coach Erik Spoelstra believes that the team is better off with a reduced Wade on the court, noting that he provides more benefits than negatives. We’ll see how long this continues if Wade continues to struggle.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
