During the “Big Three” era in a matchup against the Knicks, Dwyane Wade played with literal rose colored glasses. He then went on to score 34 points in dominating fashion. Those goggles were to help him deal with his migraines, which have been a well known issue for him throughout his career.
Wade speaks about the pain he encounters each time here in 2011. The pain sounds absolutely horrible, especially for an athlete of his caliber.
So it’s upsetting, but no unsurprising that Wade is once again dealing with this issue as reported by Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. He had dealt with the problem briefly in Chicago telling ESPN:
“I could explain it all day, but just know it’s not a good thing. It affects more than just your head. It affects your body, it affects your energy, it affects your eyes. It affects your attitude, of course. So there’s a lot of different levels of migraines. It’s unfortunate.”
So while Wade is expected to play tonight, he probably won’t play a ton of minutes. Bam and Hassan are expected back tonight as well, and Miami will rely on their depth if DWade does miss some time. Hopefully he gets back to feeling 100% soon.
