Wade's status for Game 1

5/6/2013

Dwyane Wade's bruised right knee forced him to miss some time in the regular season and Game 4 against the Bucks. He is feeling better after an extended rest, but he's likely a game-time-decision at this point.

“When you’re dealing with something after games, you hope it doesn’t get any worse, hope it doesn’t get more sore,” Wade told The Miami Herald. “But the injury I’m dealing with, you never know day to day. You’ve got to get that in your mental. It’s in my mental now that no matter what I’m dealing with, try to do what you can. Hopefully, you can get out there and be productive.”

Wade will probably play in Game 1 on Monday against Chicago, but if he can't go head coach Erik Spoelstra will start Mike Miller at shooting guard.
