Dwyane Wade SG MIA 12 Hrs
Dwyane Wade and Michael Beasley will not play against the Pistons on Sunday.
It's the second game of a back-to-back set for Wade, so it's not a big surprise to see him in street clothes. He had a minor knee injury on Saturday and was in some pain, but he was able to return to the game. Even though his value is in the cellar, the massive injury concerns does not make Wade a buy-low player in most formats.

Dwyane Wade had 19 points, five rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes in his return on Saturday, but he wasn't confident that he'll be in uniform vs. the Pistons on Sunday.
"I don't know [about Sunday]," said Wade. "We'll see ... I want to play. Sometimes you've got to take it out of the player's hands." The Heat have been cautious with Wade and his chronically-sore knees all season and we seriously doubt that they'll risk playing him in a back-to-back set this early in the season, especially since he's already in pain. Check back for a definitive update after Sunday's shootaround.

Dwyane Wade (illness, knee) will play against the Wolves on Saturday.
He missed Miami's last two games and hasn't been active since Sunday, so it should be interesting to see how the Heat use him. They also don't have Michael Beasley and have a little less depth than usual. With the rumors surfacing around the Heat looking to acquire some backcourt depth, there should be a moderate level of concern about Wade's durability this season.

Dwyane Wade (illness) will not play against the Bulls on Thursday night.

On Tuesday, the Heat used a little more of Michael Beasley to help fill the scoring void while Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers got more shots. Wade should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Wolves.

Dwyane Wade (illness) is at the team hotel and is questionable for Thursday's game against Chicago.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra answered, "I don't know" when asked about Wade's status for Thursday night and it's looking like it will be a game-time decision that will be decided by Wade's illness. If Wade is unable to suit up, James Jones would likely get the start and Shane Battier, Norris Cole, and Mario Chalmers would be the primary statistical beneficiaries.

Dwyane Wade scored 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists and four steals in the Heat's win in Toronto on Friday.
Wade has been absolutely on fire lately with first round value over the last week and now would be a great time to test his value on the market, with DNPs and time off being the issue owners should want to get out from under.
