Dwyane Wade hit 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, two rebounds and six assists in 23 minutes of Thursday's win over the Lakers.
He sat out on Tuesday due to knee soreness and while he didn't look great tonight, the good news is he's only missed two games thus far. Hopefully his knee feels fine in the morning and he'll be ready to go against the Jazz on Saturday. Dec 14 - 11:52 PM

Dwyane Wade (left knee soreness) will play vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

Wade sat out vs. the Hawks on Tuesday but it looks like that was a precaution, as he'll be back out there for the Cavs' home game tonight. J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver takes a slight hit with Wade back in action.
Dec 14 - 6:25 PM

Dwyane Wade (left knee soreness) is questionable to play vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

Wade was reportedly "on the court following shootaround," but it's unclear how much work he got it. There's a good chance he's heading for a game-time decision -- if he's ruled out, expect J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver to absorb his minutes.
Dec 14 - 4:38 PM

Dwyane Wade (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday vs. Atlanta.

Hopefully, this is simply maintenance, as Wade has been playing relatively well off the bench of late. Over the Cavs last 12 games, he was averaging 14.7 points, 4.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 25.7 minutes. J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver will see an uptick in minutes with Wade sidelined.
Dec 12 - 5:23 PM

Dwyane Wade finished with 13 points in 24 minutes on Saturday night against Philadelphia.

Wade was an efficient 6-of-10 from the field and he added four assists with a blocked shot and a rebound. The only complaint from fantasy owners might be the fact he was a dismal 1-of-4 from the free-throw line. He entered the game with a total of just 13 points, so this will stop the hand wringing of his nervous fantasy owners, at least until the next outing.
Dec 9 - 11:13 PM

Dwyane Wade posted nine points with four assists and a steal over 26 minutes in Friday's road loss against the Pacers.

Wade knocked down 4-of-6 from the field while hitting his only 3-pointer attempt, but he was a minus-12 in his time on the floor while turning it over twice and committing three fouls. After a hot stretch he has back-to-back single-digit point totals for the first since Nov. 9-11. There will be lulls in production for Wade, but he has proven in recent weeks that he still can be a valuable contributor to fantasy teams.
Dec 8 - 10:19 PM

Dwyane Wade cooled off vs. the Kings with four points (1-of-5 FGs, 2-of-6 FTs), six assists and three rebounds in 25 minutes.

Wade has already said he doesn't want to start when Isaiah Thomas (hip) returns, since he's been thriving as the lead playmaker for the second unit. It's unclear when Derrick Rose (ankle) might be healthy enough to play, so the role is Wade's to lose. He should fare better vs. the Pacers on Friday.
Dec 6 - 10:05 PM

Dwyane Wade said he does not want to rejoin the starting lineup when Isaiah Thomas becomes the starting point guard.

Wade has found a comfort zone with the second unit and would prefer to stay put. "I'm good where I'm at," said Wade. "The problem would only be worse when Isaiah comes back, because he's going to need his shots. Where I am now, it's working for me and for this team." Over the Cavs last seven games, Wade is averaging 17.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists while shooting 55.3 percent from the floor.
Dec 5 - 10:38 AM

Dwyane Wade hit 9-of-13 shots, a 3-pointer and 5-of-5 free throws for 24 points, six rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes off the bench in Monday's 113-91 blowout win over the Bulls.

Wade and Kevin Love both managed to outscore LeBron James in this one (23 points) and Wade turned back the clock against his former team. The most encouraging thing about Wade is that he played in a back-to-back last Monday and Tuesday, and has only missed one game this season. He should be owned if he was dropped in your league, as he's averaging 18.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 3-pointers on 56 percent shooting over his last five games. Wow. His only missed game came way back on Oct. 25, so a rest could be coming at some point, but he's playing at a high level right now.
Dec 4 - 10:18 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 19 points and hit 6-of-11 shots and 4-of-6 free throws against the Hawks on Thursday.

This was one of his best all-around games of the season and he was locked in defensively with four steals and two blocks to go with three assists, two boards and three triples in 23 minutes. The Cavaliers haven't been able to rest him due to their lack of depth, so keep throwing him into your lineups for the time being.
Nov 30 - 10:43 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 17 points in 28 minutes vs. the Heat on Tuesday, hitting 8-of-16 shots with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a triple.

There's always the threat of a DNP-rest during back-to-back sets for Wade, but he played 28 minutes including some garbage time despite playing 25 minutes the night before. That's a great sign that Wade is feeling fresh and 100 percent, but we'd still expect a trickle of DNPs later in the season, especially when the Cavs get some bodies back.
Nov 28 - 9:37 PM

Dwyane Wade hit 5-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, four rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 25 minutes of Monday's 113-91 win over the Sixers.

Wade is playing well right now, averaging 14.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 blocks over his last five games, and he hasn't missed one since October 25. However, the Cavs get a back-to-back at home against the Heat on Tuesday night, which could mean both LeBron James and Wade could be in street clothes. Stay tuned.
Nov 27 - 9:45 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 10 points on 5-of-11 shots with two assists, two blocks and three turnovers in 24 minutes on Friday vs. the Hornets.

Wade has been playing better these days, averaging 13.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals over his last five games. Derrick Rose' future with the Cavaliers is up in the air, so Wade will continue to enjoy a nice bump in usage and in fantasy value for the time being. However, the eventual return of Isaiah Thomas will hurt him, and it's just a matter of time before Wade is rested sporadically.
Nov 24 - 10:50 PM

The Cavaliers held on for their sixth straight victory on Wednesday, aided by Dwyane Wade's 18 points, five assists, four rebounds and one block in 28 minutes.

Wade sank 8-of-13 shots, including a 3-pointer, which more than compensated for his 1-of-4 mark at the FT line. The 12-time All-Star can still be useful in certain fantasy scenarios, but most owners can do better -- after all, he's averaging just 22.8 minutes per game this season.
Nov 22 - 9:56 PM

Dwayne Wade went for 23 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, two blocked shots and a steal in Friday's overtime win against the Clippers.

Wade also played a season-high 37 minutes in the victory. Every now and then he shows glimpses of being the D-Wade of old, and other games he isn't terribly involved and looks like a 35-year-old guard in the twilight of his illustrious career. Fantasy owners have been getting some rather inconsistent contributions from the veteran, but he remains worthy of using still since he has double-double point totals in four of his past seven outings.
