Dwyane Wade dealing with a bruised knee

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade will be a game-time decision for Game 5 against the Chicago Bulls after participating in Wednesday morning’s shootaround.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra provided the update on Wade’s status, saying that the All-Star guard’s bruised right knee will be evaluated prior to the start of Wednesday’s contest.

“He had a very good day [Tuesday] and a good shootaround,” Spoelstra said. “We’ll evaluate him before the game and go from there.”

Wade did not address the media Wednesday, but Heat forward Chris Bosh said he expects the nine-time All-Star to play. Miami owns a 3-1 series lead against Chicago and can advance to the Eastern Conference finals for a third straight year with a victory Wednesday.
