Dwyane Wade (left hamstring strain) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.
This will be Wade's fifth straight game on the sidelines, and nothing is suggesting he's close. Wayne Ellington and Justise Winslow will continue to pick up extra minutes in his absence, with Ellington offering a bit more upside. Wade belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Mar 20 - 4:23 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

This will be Wade's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and given how tricky hamstring injuries can be, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 36-year-old miss at least a few more games. At this juncture in the fantasy season, it's tough to justify hanging onto injured guys. As a rather low-upside player, Wade can be cut in most places. Justise Winslow and Wayne Ellington will pick up the slack in his absence.
Mar 18 - 5:36 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday against the Lakers.

He's 36 years old and he was discouraged about his hamstring injury back on Saturday, so Wade is probably going to miss more time. With him out, Justise Winslow and Wayne Ellington have been effective in the second unit while Tyler Johnson's minutes are much safer.
Mar 15 - 5:12 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday against the Kings.

This will be his second game off after the injury on Saturday. After Saturday's game, Wade had a fairly ominous tone to say he thought he was missing time, so he could miss the rest of the week. It'll be a team effort to replace him, especially with Josh Richardson unlikely to play now.
Mar 14 - 3:17 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) is listed as out on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. Sacramento.

Wade was unable to play Monday after straining his left hamstring Saturday night. This is merely a game-notes designation, but we should have a complete update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If Wade is confirmed as out, Wayne Ellington, Tyler Johnson and Justise Winslow should soak up additional minutes.
Mar 13 - 6:20 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will sit out on Monday vs. Portland.

He said on Saturday that he wasn't expecting to play, so at least his owners had time to find a backup plan. With Wade out Monday and possibly longer, the trio of Goran Dragic, Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson are locked into heavy minutes, and we should also see more of 3-point specialist Wayne Ellington. Justise Winslow is also looking at a bump in playing time.
Mar 12 - 9:25 AM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) said he doesn't expect to play Monday in Portland.

"These things suck," he said. Maybe he pulled his muscle on the last play of the third quarter, but either way this is rough news. His fantasy owners may not want to wait this out, so dropping him is probably the move. Wayne Ellington, Tyler Johnson and Justise Winslow gain some value.
Mar 10 - 10:37 PM

Dwyane Wade left Saturday's game against the Wizards with a mild left hamstring strain.

That's good news that the team is calling it mild, but hamstring strains really can linger. Wade took the last shot of the third quarter and he looked fine in the process. He also didn't have a limp as he went to the locker room and the Heat were up 108-76, so it doesn't look like he'll miss extended time. If he is out, that's more run for Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington and Justise Winslow. Rodney McGruder would get in the rotation, too.
Mar 10 - 9:46 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 16 points with six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes during a 108-99 win over the 76ers on Thursday.

It was a huge win for the Heat with a 35-point fourth to help them take sole possession of the No. 7 spot in the playoff hunt. Wade had his fingerprints all over it with a game-sealing, alley-oop dunk with 51 seconds left, which certainly impressed his coach. "He's filling his cup from the fountain of youth," coach Erik Spoelstra said. Wade has been playing his best ball of the year over his last five, averaging 17.2 points, 3.8 boards, 2.8 assists and 0.6steals. He still doesn't have much upside, but feel free to keep firing him up in most leagues.
Mar 8 - 11:06 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 22 points in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Wizards, adding six assists, two rebounds and one steal.

Wade hit a vintage and-1 layup to send this game to overtime, but missed his final shot of the night with 4.1 seconds to go. "I will say this always. I'll go to my grave - and I will go to my grave - with Dwyane Wade shooting with the game on the line," coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game. His move back to Miami has rejuvenated him and he already has three games with 20+ points in 10 games for the Heat compared to just three such games in 46 appearances for the Cavs.
Mar 6 - 10:48 PM

Despite a few injuries in Miami, coach Erik Spoelstra said he's not going to consider starting Dwyane Wade.

I want [Wade] to get as comfortable with that second unit as possible," Spoelstra said. "That to me is a dynamic, game-changing lineup that I want them to continue to gain confidence in, get more comfortable with." After two strong games with a combined 52 points, Wade cooled off on Saturday with 11 points, six rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes. We expect him to stick around that workload going forward, limiting his upside in fantasy leagues.
Mar 4 - 10:12 AM

Dwyane Wade stayed hot on Thursday with 25 points on 11-of-18 shooting, three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer, but it wasn't enough to avoid a lopsided loss to the Lakers.

Wade shot 6-of-6 in the first half tonight, helping to keep the Heat competitive despite coughing up 73 points through two quarters. He came in averaging 22.6 minutes with the Heat this season, and they aren't likely to give him much more than that -- especially if he continues to play in back-to-back sets. His two-game hot stretch aside, most owners have higher-upside players at their disposal.
Mar 1 - 10:22 PM

Dwyane Wade hit the game-winning shot in Tuesday's 102-101 victory over the 76ers, scoring a season-high 27 points in 25 minutes.

He'll be sore in the morning, but it's nice to know that Wade has still got it. He hit a step-back jumper over Ben Simmons with 5.9 seconds left to seal the win for Miami, hitting 10-of-16 shots and 5-of-5 free throws with one rebound, one assist, one block, three steals and two triples. As clutch as he was, we're not going to overreact here as he averaged just 8.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in his previous five games. Wayne Ellington did tweak his hamstring, so maybe Wade picks up a handful of minutes.
Feb 27 - 11:29 PM

Dwyane Wade said he's genuinely undecided as to whether or not he'll play next season.

"I have told everybody around me that I am taking it after this season and go from there," said Wade. "It’s the first year I’ve ever went into the summer with that mindset. I always went into it as a free agent or opting out of a deal to get another deal. This is the first summer I can say I’m just going into the summer and see how I feel and see the position this organization is in and go from there." Wade also added that he's only interested in playing for Miami next season.
Feb 27 - 3:25 PM

Dwyane Wade said he won't recruit LeBron James to Miami this season.

"No, I don’t have anything to do with it, none of that," Wade said. "One thing I know is he makes his own decisions. So when we get to that point, hopefully he takes a good look at the place he’s at and gives that real consideration, and then goes from there. It’s his decision and I don’t want nothing to do with it at all." As for Wade himself, it sounds like he'll be returning for the 2018-19 season and he made it clear that he won't leave the Heat again. He's a deep-league fantasy asset in his reserve role.
