Dwyane Wade misses shootaround
By Michael Wallace
CHICAGO -- Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade missed the team’s shootaround with flu-like symptoms and is considered questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Wade will be reevaluated later in the day before determining his status for the game. Heat center Chris Andersen was away from the team to deal with a personal matter and is expected to join the Heat in Minnesota on Saturday for the remainder of the team’s four-game trip.
Wade also missed Tuesday’s game to rest his sore right knee. Wade used his social media account Wednesday night to post a photo of himself receiving electronic stimulation treatment on the knee, with ongoing rehabilitation having kept the star guard out of four games this season.
