Dwyane Wade talks recovery before training camp starts

Dwayne Wade speaks on his recovery after receiving treatment on his injured knee.

Prior to the controversial back-and-forth between Dwyane Wade and OKC's Kevin Durant, Wade spoke briefly with the Miami Herald earlier this week about his recovery.

In July, Wade received OssaTron shock wave treatment on his injured knee after playing through the pain and discomfort of deep bone bruises during the 2013 NBA Playoffs. Wade implied that his recovery was going very smoothly and told the Miami Herald that he feels, "better than I expected at this point, but I'm not where I want to be either." Wade plans to participate in the Miami Heat's training camp, which is being held at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, but will probably take it pretty easy.

Wade also told the Miami Herald, "It's a big year for me and I want to make sure I left no question in my mind." Then added, "When I'm healthy, I want to feel and play at my best."

After the internet "smack talk" between Wade and Durant and Wade's assurance that he will be back, possibly better than ever, the anticipation surrounding the return of NBA basketball only grows. And yes, that anticipation is killing us.

The team sets off to training camp in Atlantis on Monday for a week in paradise, and probably a little basketball.  Keep it tuned in to Hot Hot Hoops for more information on the 2013 Heat training camp as it occurs.
