Dwyane Wade Not Fully Healthy Entering Training Camp

by September 28, 2012

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.'”
