Dwyane Wade has lower leg injuries
Thursday night’s game 3 versus Indiana had to be Dwyane Wade’s worst career post-season performance of all time, and if it wasn’t then please let me know. Wade finished the game with just five points on 2-13 shooting from the field, and the Heat were blown out convincingly by 19 points.
Along with a horrible night on the court, Wade also caught some attention of it as well. In the third quarter, Wade and coach Erik Spoelstra had a heated verbal altercation. Spoelstra downplayed it afterwards in the post-game conference.
Wade was obviously frustrated by the Pacers’ onslaught of the Heat, and his performance certainly wasn’t helping. However, it would be wise to think there was something ailing the former NBA Finals MVP since Wade only took one shot at the rim in Game 3, and he’s usually known to get to the basket often.
The Heat downplayed it after the game. I get it. Every NBA player on the court right now is dealing with bumps and bruises. However, it was reported that Wade has been getting treatment recently for knee and leg soreness.
Wade’s a gamer; he’ll be out there for game 4 no doubt.
Combine Chris Bosh’s absence with a hampered D-Wade, and the monkey on LeBron James’ back just morphed in to a gorilla.
The best thing for the Heat is that Wade and company will get two full days of rest, but even though Miami is down 2-1… if they lose Sunday in Game 4 the Pacers will pull the knockout punch in Game 5.
