Dwyane Wade will not have any medical restrictions in the playoffs, according to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.
"I'm going to read his body language, I'm going to read the game," Spoelstra said. "But he's cleared to play. So neither one of us want to put a restriction on it, but we're also realistic and we'll be smart about it." Wade hasn't played more than 23 minutes in a game since late March and he didn't play in more than eight consecutive games all season, so it would be surprising if he doesn't rest at some point during the postseason.

Dwyane Wade (knee) said he's feeling better to start this postseason compared to last postseason.

Wade added he wasn't concerned about continuity with LeBron James and how his last three games helped him. At the conclusion of the playoffs last year, Wade mentioned how much he battled through injury, which explains why the Heat managed him so severely this season. The bottom line is it looks like their plan worked and they'll look to win another title in June.
Apr 18 - 2:07 AM

Dwyane Wade hit 6-of-14 shots for 16 points, two rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

His owners probably couldn't care less that he showed up for the final two games of the season, as he was simply a headache to own all year. And if you owned Wade this season, chances are you won't be touching him next year. And we're right there with you. Toney Douglas and Ray Allen were the only other Heat players to score in double figures, as LeBron James, Chris Bosh and some others took the night off to rest. The Heat will play the Bobcats in Round 1, and will have to find an answer for Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson if they're going to breeze into Round 2.
Apr 17 - 12:01 AM

Dwyane Wade will start next to Toney Douglas, James Jones, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem on Wednesday vs. the Sixers.

Wade is expected to see a nominal amount of minutes, but it's still a great sign for the Heat to even see him suit up. He had to play through injuries last postseason and chances are he will have to again.
Apr 16 - 7:17 PM

Dwyane Wade is expected to play "nominal minutes" in Miami's final game of the regular season on Wednesday.

Wade logged 23 minutes in his return on Saturday, then followed that up with an 18-minute game on Monday, and he's not likely to get much more vs. the 76ers. The good news for Miami is that he doesn't seem to have had any setbacks with his hamstring or knee since returning, while slowly improving his conditioning in the lead-up to the playoffs.
Apr 16 - 1:29 PM

Dwyane Wade started at small forward on Monday vs. the Wizards, scoring nine points with three assists and two steals in 18 minutes.

He probably would have been closer to 23-27 minutes tonight, but the Heat were blown out 114-93. With tonight's loss, Miami is now locked in as the two seed, which increases the probability Wade sits on Wednesday night. His fantasy owners can probably make a proactive cut at this point.
Apr 14 - 9:19 PM

Dwyane Wade will start against the Wizards on Monday night.

He's expected to have a minutes restriction tonight, but he should still have a lot of responsibilities with LeBron James and Chris Bosh sitting out. Wade played 23 minutes on Saturday and was still able to score 24 points, so his fantasy owners should throw him out there in their lineups tonight. Although, he's almost a lock to rest on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 5:44 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) made it through Saturday's game unscathed, clearing the way for him to play again on Monday.

"He probably felt like he should have been cleared a week ago, but we wanted to be very patient with him," said coach Erik Spoelstra. Wade looked terrific in 23 minutes of action in his return and the Heat may bump up his playing time to ensure that he's ready for the postseason, but he's always a DNP risk so owners should confirm his status before tip-off. In an ironic twist, Wade has better odds of playing than fellow stars LeBron James and Chris Bosh, both of whom could use some rest.
Apr 14 - 12:16 PM

Dwyane Wade hit 10-of-14 shots for 24 points, three rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in his return from a nine-game absence on Saturday.

Wade looked fantastic in just 23 minutes, but the Hawks won, securing their spot in the playoffs, while eliminating the Knicks. The Heat are now tied with the Pacers for the best record in the East, so it's possible that Wade and LeBron James will play in the Heat's final two games of the season (Monday and Wednesday). The Pacers hold the tie breaker for the No. 1 seed over the Heat if they finish with the same record.
Apr 12 - 9:56 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will return from a nine-game absence vs. the Hawks on Saturday.

"I’m going to give it a go tonight," Wade said before the game. "Now it’s about getting comfortable and pushing it to see where I’m at." Wade has been very effective when active this year, but he's missed a third of the season and his health will be paramount for the Heat as they try to win a third straight championship. Check back after the game to see how he holds up.
Apr 12 - 6:58 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not play in Friday's game against the Pacers.

It's Wade's ninth straight game on the sidelines and the 28th game missed overall. At this point, it looks like the hamstring is a real issue and not just the standard rest he typically takes ahead of the playoffs. Look for the Heat to use Toney Douglas as their starting off-guard once again. Greg Oden (back) is out, Chris Anderson (knee) is a game-time call and Udonis Haslem (illness) is probable.
Apr 11 - 11:08 AM

Dwyane Wade is nearly over his hamstring injury, according to coach Erik Spoelstra, and it sounds like the Heat are hoping he can play against the Pacers on Friday.

Consider Wade, who has missed eight straight games, a game-time decision for Friday, as usual. He'll have to pass a battery of tests before being cleared, so we're not likely to know his status until late Friday afternoon.
Apr 10 - 12:16 PM

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

He went through warmups and is at least getting closer to a return to the lineup. "Heat nation, just be patient," coach Erik Spoelstra said. Wade will miss his eighth consecutive game and there really is no incentive to play him in the regular season. He can just get back in the swing of things in the first round of the playoffs and the Heat have been playing well without him.
Apr 9 - 6:43 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) is warming up for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

There is still no news on his status for tonight, but warming up a little earlier is at least slightly encouraging. We'll pass along the news of his availability as soon as the team provides an update.
Apr 9 - 6:16 PM

Dwyane Wade sat out his seventh straight game on Tuesday due to a strained left hamstring.

Erik Spoelstra said that Wade was "very close" to playing but the Heat decided to hold him out yet again as a precaution. He's missed 26 games this season and has been an endless source of frustration for fantasy owners, though when he's been active he's been quite efficient.
