Dwyane Wade Back On The Court Following Surgery

by August 30, 2012

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade recently resumed on-court work for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on July 9. Wade is apparently ahead of schedule, and is expected to be fully healthy when the Heat open their season against the Boston Celtics on October 30. Via the South Florida Sun Sentinel: “Tuesday evening, during the break between his charity events this past weekend in Chicago and his upcoming book tour, Wade posted on Twitter: ‘Whew..first day on the court since my surgery..oh and that look on my face was b4 the workout started..haa.’ Wade then posted a picture of him working out with Heat assistant coach David Fizdale. Two weeks ago, while hosting his annual adult fantasy camp on Miami Beach, Wade said he was disappointed that he could not participate in the camp, limiting his competitive interaction to a 3-point contest with the adult campers. At the time, he said, ‘I can’t start really working out until the first week of September. I don’t want to do too much.’ Apparently that timetable was moved up a week, leaving him a month of activity before the Sept. 29 start of Heat training camp a tAmericanAirlines Arena. Wade exacerbated the soreness during the Heat’s push to their NBA Finals victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.”
