Dwyane Wade SG MIA 2 Days

Wade (hamstring) said Thursday that he expects to miss 2-to-3 weeks at the minimum, Joe Goodman of the Miami Herald reports.

Wade said the best-case scenario is that he misses a few weeks, but he could remain out considerably longer, perhaps through the All-Star break. "You won't be seeing me for a while so get a good look at this face," Wade told told reporters. James Ennis is expected to step up in Wade's absence, and Danny Granger could also see increased minutes.

Wade (hamstring) is expected to miss an extended period of time, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Wade departed Tuesday's game with a right hamstring injury, which was later diagnosed as a strain. The veteran battled a left hamstring strain earlier in the season, which caused him to miss more than two weeks. If that timetable holds up again, Wade would likely remain out until the All-Star break, putting his participation in the All-Star Game, itself, in jeopardy. Wade was not selected as a starter but is expected to be named a reserve. Miami, which hosts the Mavericks on Friday, is also dealing with injuries to Luol Deng (calf) and Chris Andersen (ankle). The Heat signed Tyler Johnson to a second 10-day deal Wednesday to bring much-needed help to the backcourt.

Wade suffered a right hamstring strain and will not return to Tuesday's game.

This is not the same hamstring that forced Wade to miss time earlier this month, but that does not necessarily count as good news. Wade has made a habit over the past two seasons of leaving fantasy owners hanging, so this should not come as a surprise, as it just seems like his body is breaking down. The Heat will be off until Friday, so there's a chance that some rest will allow Wade to get back on the court this weekend.

Wade was not at shootaround according to teammate Chris Bosh, Tim Reynolds of the AP reports.

Wade's injury struggles have been well documented over the past seasons, so it would be no surprise to hear of a new injury or illness that would force him to miss the game Friday. It's even possible that Wade could get the night off to rest even though this game is not part of a back-to-back. The most likely rationale though, is that the 11-year veteran decided to get some rest, rather than take part in take part in shootaround, and will still play Friday.

Wade (hamstring) scored 17 points (8-21 FG, 1-1 FT) with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.

The veteran was able to produce on the second night of a back-to-back, but despite the fact that he's suited up for 31 games so far, Wade's owners can't expect him to be consistently available for the rest of the season.

Wade (hamstring) will get the start Wednesday.

Wade (hamstring) may not take the court Wednesday, the Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman reports.

This was always a possibility, as he returned for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, but knowing the Heat played the second game of a back-to-back Wednesday, owners should have a replacement option. Wade was receiving treatment on his hamstring during media availability, and should be considered a game-time call.

Wade (hamstring) returned from a two-game absence Tuesday, posting 18 points (8-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds and six assists in 34 minutes against the Thunder.

Miami will play its second game in as many nights on Wednesday, so Wade may sit out to rest considering that he played 34 minutes on a tender hamstring on Tuesday. If he gets the start Wednesday, he could be a solid play. In seven appearances this season with zero days rest, Wade is averaging 23 points, 5.6 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 32 minutes. A day off could be in store for Wade at some point in the near future given that the Heat play four games with one or less days of rest over the next week.
