After sitting out for the last week and bit (5 games) while dealing with a hamstring strain, Wade’s status has finally been upgraded. After initially being reported “out” for tonight’s game Wade has now been upgraded to “questionable”. Barry Jackson reports that Wade was active in Miami’s shoot around today.
Erik Spoelstra commented on the situation saying:
“I was very happy to see him out there, obviously,” Spoelstra said of Wade participating in the shootaround
“I have not even asked him yet” (about playing tonight)
Jackson said that Wade declined to speak to reporters.
So there it is, and its pretty ambiguous. Wade might not play tonight, but there’s a chance he will. If anything it’s good to see he’s getting closer to returning. The Heat will need him down the stretch.
