Dwyane Wade misses seventh game in a row as a precautionPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Miami Herald with an update on the Heat and D-Wade, whose main focus is to be healthy for the upcoming NBA playoffs, which start Saturday, April 19:
Dwyane Wade is close to returning to the court, but was held out of his seventh game in a row on Tuesday as a precaution.
Wade, who injured his hamstring March 26 against Indiana, put in extra hours in the training room and on the court Monday and wanted to play against the Brooklyn Nets, but the Heat’s trainers and coach Erik Spoelstra remained cautious. Wade, who has missed 26 games this season, might return to the court Wednesday in Memphis, but remains doubtful.
“He really pushed it the last two days and came in this morning and really pushed it,” Spoelstra said. “He is making progress and making, actually, significant progress, but he’s just not quite there.
“We’re going to go into it day by day like we usually do. I like the progress he has made. It’s day-to-day.”
