Dwyane Wade To Miss Time With Dislocated Finger?

As the Miami Heat prepare for their playoff run, they continued to routinely sit the big three. They appear to alternate Dwyane Wade and LeBron James.

Tonight, it was Wade’s turn to play, but he didn’t make it too far. After 2 minutes of play against the Washington Wizards, Wade dislocated his left finger as it appeared to have gotten caught in another player’s jersey. He grimaced in pain and headed back to the locker room, and didn’t return.

Luckily, it was his left hand, but you can bet that this injury will linger. He was diagnosed as day to day, but will be further tested tomorrow. Typically, a dislocated finger can take weeks to fully heel and the Miami Heat certainly don’t want any of their big three to go down.

LeBron, Wade, and Bosh have all been banged up and at this point it is likely that the Heat will rest them until the playoffs.The Heat certainly have a lot to prove this post season, especially after losing in the finals last season to the Dallas Mavericks.

If there is one positive to take from the Wade injury, it is that the Heat have been spectacular this season without him. In particular, LeBron James has shined in Wade’s absence. If LeBron can pick up some momentum, he has the skill set to carry the Heat to a championship alone with Wade taking the backs seat, and this would ultimately silence James’ critics.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
