Dwyane Wade went off for 26 points (7-of-18 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs), 11 rebounds, eight assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes during Wednesday's tough road loss in Boston.
Wade has never triple-doubled in the playoffs, and his near-miss tonight wasn't enough for the Bulls to avoid falling into a 3-2 hole. Rajon Rondo is a "longshot" to return this series due to his fractured thumb, according to coach Fred Hoiberg, so the Bulls will be relying even more on Wade's playmaking. They simply can't afford to play him fewer than 32+ minutes per game, which buoys his DFS value. Apr 26 - 11:33 PM

Dwyane Wade scored a team-high 18 points during a 104-87 loss in Chicago on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists and two blocks in 33 minutes.

The Bulls offense was a complete disaster, especially in the third quarter. They couldn't get a single assist in the third and also had just one dime in the first quarter. Wade was really the only one to keep the Bulls in it early with 10 of the Bulls' first 23 points, but he fizzled out after that. He'll have more ball handling responsibility going forward with Rajon Rondo (wrist, thumb) out, so he'll offer a nice upside on a given night. The Bulls will look to keep their homecourt advantage in Game 4 on Sunday.
Apr 21 - 9:43 PM

Dwyane Wade hit 9-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 22 points, four rebounds, two assists, a block and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's easy 111-97 win over the Celtics to help give the Bulls a 2-0 lead in the series.

Games 3 and 4 are in Chicago and Wade will be looking to keep the pedal to the metal and bury the No. 1 seed in his home town. Wade only had 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting in Game 1 while playing with a sore elbow, but looked like his old self tonight. If Wade stays hot the Bulls could shock the world and win the East, despite being the No. 8 seed. And just so you know, the Bulls were 4-0 vs. the Cavaliers in the regular season this year.
Apr 18 - 11:03 PM

Dwyane Wade (elbow) pitched in 11 points, six assists, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks during Sunday's Game 1 victory, shooting 4-of-12 from the field with one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Wade received medical clearance to ramp up his minutes, and he showed no signs of discomfort. The veteran doesn't have his old hops and he caught nothing but the front rim on a breakaway dunk attempt in the second half (see the video below). Beyond that gaffe and the poor shooting, he did all of the little things that make the difference in a playoff game. This series just got really interesting with the No. 8 seed Bulls stealing homecourt advantage in Game 1.
Apr 16 - 9:38 PM

Dwyane Wade will not have a minutes limit for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

Head coach Fred Hoiberg said he's "allowed" to extend Wade's minutes if needed, so he'll likely see his playing time in the 30s tonight after failing to eclipse the 25-minute mark in his final three regular season games. Nikola Mirotic might not be as involved on the offensive end with Wade back in his usual role.
Apr 16 - 5:21 PM

Dwyane Wade will likely play over 30 minutes in Game 1 against the Celtics on Sunday.

The Bulls have kept his minutes between 22 and 25 in his three games back. Wade has said his minute limit was more about conditioning and not his injured elbow, so now he's had over a week to get right since he was cleared to play again. It's still going to be Jimmy Butler's show, but the secondary scorers may take a hit with Wade closer to his normal role.
Apr 15 - 2:47 PM

Dwyane Wade said his minutes limit is more about conditioning than his elbow.

He said his elbow is fine. Wade played 22 minutes on Monday and is likely looking at minutes in the mid 20s today. The Nets are resting a bunch of players today, so maybe Wade won't need to play in the fourth quarter. His increased role should take away from the second-tier scorers like Nikola Mirotic while Jimmy Butler should be fine.
Apr 12 - 2:05 PM

Dwyane Wade hit half of his 10 field-goal attempts in Monday's 122-75 blowout win against the Magic, finishing with 13 points, six rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 22 minutes.

Head coach Fred Hoiberg said Wade would play 18-22 minutes due to his elbow, and fantasy owners were pleased it was the higher end of that minutes cap. His status is still likely up in the air for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Nets, although it will likely be all hands on deck since the Bulls have not yet clinched a spot in the postseason.
Apr 11 - 12:28 AM

Dwyane Wade will play 18-22 minutes on Monday vs. the Magic according to coach Fred Hoiberg.

Hoiberg previously said that Wade's minutes would go up after he played 25 minutes in his return over the weekend, so maybe he's dealing with some soreness. Feel free to deploy him in season-long leagues, but keep in mind that his upside is severely capped. DFS owners should look the other way.
Apr 10 - 12:20 PM

Dwyane Wade said his elbow held up well on Saturday vs. Brooklyn.

"Elbow felt cool, just trying to get my wind and legs back," Wade said. Coach Fred Hoiberg said the plan is to increase Wade's workload over the final two games, which makes sense because the Bulls are tying to lock up a playoff spot. After a 25-minute shift on Saturday, Wade could flirt with 30 minutes in the final two games.
Apr 9 - 10:29 AM

Dwyane Wade scored 14 points in 25 minutes against the Nets on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one block and five turnovers.

He was already over his 20-minute limit with just over two minutes left, but coach Fred Hoiberg put Wade back in to close this one. Wade played well and didn't look too rusty in this bad loss, so expect his minutes limit to increase against the Magic on Monday.
Apr 8 - 7:25 PM

Dwyane Wade (elbow) will start and is expected to play 20 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

The Bulls said the last test was to see how he responded in a team scrimmage, so apparently it went very well to announce he's a go even before warmups. With Wade back, that should take away from Jerian Grant coming off a 15-point game while the other guards take a hit. Jimmy Butler's upside isn't quite as high, but he should still feast against the Nets defense, especially with Wade having a cap on playing time. Expect guys like Nikola Mirotic to cool off slightly as well.
Apr 8 - 3:32 PM

Dwayne Wade (elbow) is going to be a game-time decision to face the Nets on Saturday.

He said he is ahead of schedule and his fracture is fully healed. Coach Fred Hoiberg said a final decision will be made tomorrow after the team can see how Wade responds to the second team scrimmage. For now, it sounds like he's closer to probable than any other status tag. If Wade is indeed back, Jimmy Butler's ceiling slightly drops while Paul Zipser, Nikola Mirotic, Denzel Valentine and basically every perimeter player takes a hit.
Apr 7 - 2:37 PM

Updating a previous report, Dwyane Wade (elbow) did not practice on Thursday.

The Bulls gave him a "recovery day" as he's dealing with some soreness. Wade is still expected to go through a contact practice on Friday and it sounds like he has a good chance to return on Saturday vs. the Nets. We should have a better idea after Friday's practice, though.
Apr 6 - 12:16 PM

Dwyane Wade (elbow) is expected to take some more contact at practice on Thursday and Friday.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Wade looked "good" during Wednesday's practice, and while he's targeting a return on Saturday vs. the Nets, Hoiberg said the Bulls will have a better idea of his status on Friday. "Dwyane was able to participate in a lot of the contact drills," he said. "The big thing right now for him is getting his conditioning and wind and timing back; it was great to see him out there in part of our scrimmage." Wade will likely be limited upon his return, and it's too late in the season for him to help most fantasy owners.
