Wade Has Knee Drained
Wade has knee drained during Indiana series.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This can’t be good.
Dwayne Wade reportedly has been nursing a knee injury through the playoffs. Wade has refused to blame his knee for his mediocre play earlier in the Pacer series, but underwent a minor draining procedure on at least one occasion. This injury to his left knee will likely not heal until the season is over, but the real issue is how far into the playoffs can wade go on it.
Wade’s slashing aggressive off style is greatly hampered by a sub par left knee, as was evident with his 5 points game three against Indiana. Wade without his cutting ability is like Tina Fey without her Sarah Palin imitation, just not the same. Miami remains mum about the exact condition of Wade’s knee, but it will certainly be an ongoing issue now that Miami is in the Eastern Conference Finals.
