Dwyane Wade looked like a spot-up specialist in a 105-99 win over the Celtics on Thursday, scoring 22 points with six rebounds, five assists, one block and four 3-pointers.
Wade made a grand total of seven 3-pointers last year, so clearly all that work in the offseason is paying some early dividends. He caught guys like Avery Bradley by surprise and was wide open for most of his six attempts. The league will probably make an adjustment here, but he looks like he'll have 3-pointers worked into his arsenal. Oct 28 - 12:06 AM

Dwyane Wade said he expects to play 30-32 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

Wade and head coach have both previously spoken about managing the 34-year-old's workload, so 30-32 minutes sounds about right. While Wade is worth a start in standard fantasy leagues, owners shouldn't expect production that resembles that of an in-his-prime D-Wade.

Dwyane Wade will play Friday and not Saturday.

It's just rest for Wade with the Cavs regulars not even traveling for their Friday game. Wade is taking more 3-pointers this month and should have a higher upside. On the other hand, he is a year older and the Bulls will likely watch his minutes.
Oct 14 - 6:28 PM

Fred Hoiberg indicated that while he'll be managing Dwyane Wade's workload this season, he has not mapped out an official schedule as to when Wade will rest.

"Just being smart and understanding I am turning 35 this year [in January]," Wade said. "As much as some days I feel great. Some days I feel 34." Hoiberg will be relying on Wade to be honest with regards to what he can do, but the takeaway here is that there will likely be more than a handful of random rest days for the 14-year veteran. The durability concerns are very real, so Wade won't be worth much more than a late-round selection on draft day.

Dwyane Wade scored 22 points during a 121-105 win over the Pacers on Saturday, adding one rebound, eight assists and three 3-pointers.

The triples stand out here and it looks like the talk of Wade adding range is legitimate. He already has five 3-pointers in his 61 preseason minutes, which is close to his seven treys in his 2,258 minutes last regular season. On the other hand, those eight dimes tonight are a bit of a fluke with Rajon Rondo resting. Wade is worth a look in the later rounds and he's certainly going to slide in most leagues.
Oct 8 - 11:21 PM

Dwyane Wade made his Bulls preseason debut on Monday, finishing with six points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 12 minutes.

It would appear the 3-pointers talk is legit. Wade only had two pull-up treys last season, but his first bucket tonight came in that fashion. He played off the ball a little more than he did last year, which should continue next to Rajon Rondo and Jimmy Butler. Wade is going to be risky to take in fantasy due to his propensity to miss games.
Oct 3 - 9:42 PM

Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler will only see around 10-15 minutes in Monday's preseason opener.

The rest of the Bulls starters will be limited as well. Wade has been encouraged by the coaching staff to take more 3-pointers and it's no secret that they will need some floor spacing with Rajon Rondo at the point, so that's something to look for on Monday. His workload won't be too high this season, so it's best to wait until the end of the middle rounds.

Dwyane Wade said coach Fred Hoiberg wants him to shoot more 3-pointers.

"That’s a little new era for me," Wade said. He had a career-low seven total makes from deep last season and has never made more than 1.1 treys per game in his career. The Bulls are likely going to manage Wade's minutes and he's clearly past his prime at age 34. Unless he really slides in a draft, it's probably best to let someone else draft Wade. In other news, Wade said he wants to be from "Chicago, Illinois" and not Marquette during the pre-game intros.

General manager Gar Forman said Dwyane Wade's minutes restriction is expected to be "fluid" this season.

"First of all, we’ve talked to him – our medical team and our athletic-performance team, we’ve visited some with him," Forman said. "I don’t know that any definitive have come from that yet, but it’s obviously something that we’ll watch in regards to Dwyane being a little bit older but really to a number of our players." Wade surprisingly played 74 games last season at 30.5 minutes per outing. The Bulls are not new to managing players on playing time, so they might treat Wade a little like Derrick Rose last season.
Sep 26 - 11:10 PM

Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf believes Dwyane Wade will be an invaluable addition to the team.

"It's a tremendous addition," Reinsdorf said. "Not only as a player but to our culture. Right off the bat, he wanted to know what he could do in the community. He has his own plans. So does Rajon [Rondo]. These guys are going to be a real plus." We still think it will take some time for the kinks to be worked out between Wade, Rondo and Jimmy Butler, but there's no question Chicago will be a fascinating team to watch.

Dwyane Wade said his decision to leave Miami wasn't just about money.

"Last year I wanted more money — just to be real; I got more money," Wade said. "This year, the direction and the focus for that organization in Miami — which I have nothing but love and respect for — was a little different than it has been in years past." Wade added that playing in Chicago has always been a dream of his, but he was noncommittal about whether Chicago would be his final NBA stop -- he has a player option for the second year of his deal. Wade's usage rate and minutes will likely drop in his age-34 season.
Jul 31 - 12:27 PM

Dwyane Wade said the Bulls are "Jimmy Butler's team."

"This wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for Jimmy Butler," Wade said. He said he's just going to play his game, so it doesn't sound like he'll be adding many 3-pointers to his arsenal. Wade ranked in the top five for usage rate among qualifiers in the last two years, so it'll be interesting to see how the shots are distributed in the Chicago offense. Wade will be a risky mid-round pick.
Jul 29 - 3:24 PM

Dwyane Wade recently expressed appreciation for his tenure in Miami.

"There’s a lot of things that’s going to be said, that has been said, but at the end of the day I’m just thankful," Wade said. "I’m thankful for the love, the opportunity that I’ve had in this city for 13 years to just create some unbelievable magic. That goes nowhere. That will be something that we will all have in common for many, many years down the line." While Wade also dismissed the notion that there was tension between he and Pat Riley, it's hard to believe it's all love after the way business went down.

Pat Riley said Dwyane Wade's departure to the Bulls makes this a tough offseason for the Heat.

While there are reports that Riley didn't call Wade during the free agency process, the Heat president expressed sadness in seeing D-Wade leave for the Bulls. "Ten years ago," Riley wrote in a text to Dan LeBetard of the Miami Herald. "Ten years older. Ten years wiser. Ten years changed. All of us. Dwyane had a choice, and he made it. He went home. Bad, bad summer for us." While the 34-year-old still has something left in the tank, he's bound to see his usage rate (and fantasy value) drop in Chicago.
Jul 7 - 10:20 AM

Dwyane Wade has agreed to a two-year, $47.5 million deal with the Chicago Bulls.

Wade's stunning decision to return to his home town of Chicago, spurning the franchise he spent 13 years with while winning three championships, reportedly stemmed from acrimonious free agent negotiations with Pat Riley and the Heat. The Bucks and Nuggets were also pursuing him but he wasn't able to secure a guaranteed third season in any scenario, so he opted for a two-year deal with a player option in the second year. Chicago's rebuilt lineup will presumably start Rajon Rondo, Wade, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Robin Lopez, but they'll need to fill out the bench after trading Mike Dunleavy and Jose Calderon to clear salary cap space. Wade's gaudy usage rate is sure to fall in Chicago, bumping him down a round or two for fantasy purposes.
