UPDATE: Wade went through the Heat's full practice session again Tuesday. ESPN's Mike Wallace tweeted that the guard will likely play tomorrow at home against Milwaukee. END OF UPDATE.

Dwyane Wade fully participated in the Miami Heat practice Monday after missing the final two games of the team's just-concluded six-game road trip. He injured his foot during the third quarter of Miami's Nov. 12 game against the Houston Rockets. Wade played well in the first half of the game, scoring 17 points, but struggled for the rest of the night against Houston. The two-time NBA champion played in the Heat's next game against the Los Angeles Clippers, but looked clearly below 100 percent and said today that he re-aggravated his foot and regretted playing against the Clippers.

Wade said that he hopes to play Wednesday at home against the Milwaukee Bucks, but wouldn't commit to it.

Wade has suffered from a few injuries to start the season, and the Miami Heat have played well without him -- similar to last season. But the Heat aren't better without Wade, and the 6-foot-4 guard from Marquette will soon return to form. Participating fully in today's practice is a good sign.
