Dwyane Wade scored 20 points with nine rebounds, 10 assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.
He just missed the triple-double in hilarious fashion on the last play of the game. A missed shot came softly off the rim and right to Wade, but Cristiano Felicio went for it to knock it away from Wade to leave him at nine boards. Clearly, Wade knew he missed the trip-dub based on his reaction (video in link below). Wade is coming out with a head of steam with a 23-point game on Friday and has his Bulls in the sixth seed. He'll likely be managed at some point, but keep rolling Wade out there. He gets a great matchup against the Nuggets on Tuesday. Feb 25 - 11:46 PM

Dwyane Wade remains noncommittal about next season and says he is focused solely on making the playoffs this year.

Wade has a $24 million player option he can exercise this summer for the 2017-18 campaign. When asked if he thought Chicago management wanted him to pick up that option, Wade said he was unsure. "I haven't had that conversation about next season with the guys... I just want to play basketball. And do my best job as a player that I can do." Wade played well on Friday night, finishing with 23 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes.

Dwyane Wade scored 23 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

He had a dunk in overtime with 42 seconds left to seal the win and Wade raised the roof afterwards like it was the 1990s, which he had to explain after the game. "I don't know. It was an out of body experience," Wade said. "I looked at my teammates, they was jumping up, they was pumped, so I thought I'd give them something." The Bulls are sitting in the No. 7 spot, so maybe Wade won't get too much rest going forward.

Dwyane Wade (wrist) will start against the Suns on Friday.

He's good to go after a bruised right wrist cost him some time at the end of the first half of the season. Wade is starting to trend down after a solid start, but he's still worth using when he's active. Plus, he gets a great matchup.
Feb 24 - 6:58 PM

Dwyane Wade (bruised right wrist) intends to play vs. the Suns on Friday.

Fantasy owners can expect Wade to play, but it never hurts to keep an eye on the injury report. Wade said that his wrist feels "a lot better" but will still be sore, suggesting that he's not 100 percent recovered. His fantasy value is safe as long as he's healthy, and it should only improve if the Bulls part ways with Jimmy Butler before Thursday's deadline.
Feb 22 - 9:03 PM

Dwyane Wade (wrist, illness) will not play on Thursday vs. the Celtics.

The Bulls are listing him as out with an illness as opposed to his sore right shooting wrist, so hopefully that's a sign that he will be 100 percent when the Bulls return from their All-Star break. Michael Carter-Williams will draw another start, but he doesn't have a great ceiling with Jimmy Butler running the show.
Feb 16 - 12:18 PM

Dwyane Wade (wrist) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Thursday.

He did about half of practice on Wednesday. Wade has missed the last two games due to some swelling in his shooting wrist, so he's likely shaping up to the a game-time decision for the 8:00 start in Chicago. If he can't go, Michael Carter-Williams gets a slight bump while Doug McDermott could build off his 20-point Tuesday.
Feb 15 - 2:25 PM

Dwyane Wade (right wrist contusion) has been ruled out Tuesday's game vs. Toronto.

This will be the second straight game Wade has missed after injuring his wrist in a fall last Friday. Jimmy Butler (heel) is probable, but Nikola Mirotic (back) and Paul Zipser (ankle) are out, which will leave the Bulls shorthanded once again. Denzel Valentine, Jerian Grant and Rajon Rondo are expected to soak up the extra minutes available.
Feb 14 - 12:13 PM

Dwyane Wade (right wrist) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against Toronto.

Wade underwent an MRI on Monday, but the results of that test have yet to be released. Once the MRI results become public we'll have a better idea on Wade's status, and owners can expect to get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround. With Wade and Jimmy Butler (heel) uncertain for Tuesday night, Denzel Valentine and Jerian Grant could be forced to take on a larger offensive role while Rajon Rondo would have the opportunity for some extended minutes. Stay tuned.

X-rays on Dwyane Wade's bruised right wrist were negative.

Wade injured both of his wrists on Friday and his right wrist was very swollen, but the good news is that nothing is broken. We're considering him questionable for Tuesday's game, and if he can't suit up guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Denzel Valentine will see increased opportunities.

Dwyane Wade (right wrist contusion) will not play on Sunday vs. the Wolves, and he plans to have his wrist X-rayed.

Jimmy Butler (heel), Nikola Mirotic (back) and Paul Zipser (food poisoning, ankle) are also on the sidelines today, leaving the Bulls extremely thin on the wings. Expect Doug McDermott, Michael Carter Williams and Denzel Valentine to benefit the most until some healthy bodies get back in the rotation.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Another player to look at is Taj Gibson. He’s only played 86.1 minutes without Butler and Wade on the floor this season but he's been excellent in that scenario, posting 1.15 fantasy points per minute, a 27.8% increase above his normal rate. With all of these scratches for Chicago, Gibson is certainly a bargain across the industry. In fact, he’s one of our top points-per-dollar plays available today. Despite being without their stars, the Bulls are only 6.5-point underdogs, so the game should be competitive.

Dwyane Wade (right wrist contusion) is probable to face the Wolves on Sunday.

He had ice packs on both of his wrists after the lose in Phoenix on Friday night. The probable tag is a good sign and Wade could be in for a big game with Jimmy Butler (heel) still nowhere near 100 percent.
Feb 11 - 7:06 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) returned to action against the Suns on Friday, scoring 18 points with six rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He had a fall in this game and had ice packs on both of his wrists during his post-game interview. Wade said he wants to see how he's feeling on Saturday before figuring out if he can play on Sunday against the Wolves. He did look healthy for the most part and even had a chasedown block, but this was a bad loss for the Bulls.

Dwyane Wade (illness) says that despite not being 100 percent, he will play Friday vs. the Suns.

Wade told reporters that he is still not completely over his sickness but is "well enough to go out there and play." Wade not being at full strength makes him a particularly risky DFS play, but he should be locked into all season-long starting lineups. Wade's return will cut into the playing time of Michael Carter-Williams and Jerian Grant.
Feb 10 - 1:56 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) missed practice on Thursday and remains at a team hotel.

He will fly with the Bulls to Phoenix for Friday's game, but he still is listed as day-to-day. Wade did not play on Wednesday in Oakland and did not leave his hotel for shootaround or warmups. If he's back, Michael Carter-Williams, Jerian Grant and Denzel Valentine could lose some minutes.
