Dwyane Wade SG MIA 14 Hrs

Wade played in a season-high 37 minutes and attempted 26 shots, also a season high Friday in a loss to the Wizards, finishing the game with 28 points.

Without Chris Bosh, Wade is the No. 1 option for the Heat, and is playing like it. He has 28 or more points in each of the past three games, including a 42-point outburst on Wednesday. He also has yet to miss a game in December.

Wade scored 42 points (12-19 FG, 2-3 3P, 16-21 FT) with four rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

With Chris Bosh sidelined, Wade stepped up with his best scoring performance in four years. Unfortunately for the Heat, no one else in the lineup managed more than 11 points. The veteran wing will probably continue to put up big numbers in the short term as the focal point of Miami's offense, but it wouldn't be a shock to see Wade break down at some point under the increased workload.

Wade (illness) played through his illness Tuesday, putting up 28 points (12-24 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 36 minutes.

Other than missing seven games with a hamstring injury in November, Wade has been healthy all season, sitting out no other games. He's playing on both nights of back-to-backs and fighting to play through minor bumps and bruises, in stark contrast to the rest-and-more-rest approach Wade was instructed to follow last season, which limited him to playing in just 54 games. Over his last five games, Wade is averaging 20.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 0.6 three-pointers. While Wade's season is an improvement on his production last season, he remains an injury risk, and the best strategy with habitually-injured players is to generally try and trade high on them, because their potential absences are too detrimental to the success of a fantasy team.

Wade (illness) did not participate in Tuesday's shootaround and remains questionable to play versus Brooklyn.

Wade has been dealing with an illness since Friday and did not take part in Monday's practice prior to the team's flight to Brooklyn. His absence from shootaround is not a positive indication, though the team likely won't rule him in or out until closer to game-time. Danny Granger is also dealing with an illness, so the already-shorthanded Heat could be lacking depth in both the frontcourt and backcourt Tuesday.
