Dwyane Wade Not Fully Healthy Entering Training Camp

As he continues to recover from offseason knee surgery, Dwyane Wade will take it slow at the start of training camp. So says Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra. From the Miami Herald: “Wade, who played with pain and swelling in his knee throughout the playoffs, underwent surgery on his left knee July 9 — forcing him to miss the London Olympics. [Mike] Miller, who was limited by a sore back for most of the postseason, has undergone rehabilitation throughout the offseason. ‘We’ll be very big-picture oriented with both of them and make sure they’re progressing at a healthy rate and getting stronger and getting conditioned,’ Spoelstra said. ‘They know the system and what to expect, so I believe we’ll all be on the same page with that.’ Wade resumed his conditioning a month ago, and Spoelstra said he hopes Wade ‘won’t miss any regular-season time.’ [...] ‘He’s not 100 percent,’ Spoelstra said. ‘So we’re going to be very vigilant on how we progress him.’”

    DWade is the man even when he’s not healthy. Even though his #s aint the same its still better than most of the other players in this league.

    Honestly when was this dudes last full healthy season? 08-09 wasn’t to long ago, but the games missed overall is a thorn in Wades career.
    He’s played 596 games out of a possible 738… Not terrible, but not good for an elite player.

    Dwade received Lebron and Bosh’s help too late. if he had these kind of teammates around him earlier, it could’ve really extended his prime. these guys are saving each other’s careers by taking a lot of pressure off each other. hopefully homie improved his shot to further decrease wear and tear on his body. a fully healthy wade backing up more skilled Lebron and co. is terrifying for the rest of the league, after all we saw what he did w/ a hurt one.
