Dwyane Wade said he wouldn't make a decision about his future until later in the offseason.
Over the past couple of weeks, Wade has hinted that he may hang up his sneakers. However, speaking with reporters after Miami was eliminated in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, he wasn't ready to make a final decision. "That's not my focus," Wade said. "Fresh off this NBA season, my 15th year, I sit back and think about that. Then I dive and throw myself into my family. They're next on my bucket list, making sure I'm there for them. And when it comes to the basketball side of it, which is a long time away from now, then I'll think about that." Apr 25 - 11:09 AM

Dwyane Wade hit 4-of-15 shots for 11 points, five rebounds, five assists and a steal off the bench in Tuesday's 104-91 loss to the Sixers that knocked the Heat out of the playoffs.

A tweet from Gabrielle Union after the game ended didn't give much insight into whether or not Wade will play again next year or retire, but given how the playoffs ended for the Heat, Wade might be leaning towards shutting it down. Whatever he decides, it's been a great career and he's back where he belongs, in Miami.

Dwyane Wade scored 25 points with three rebounds, one assist, three steals and two turnovers in 26 minutes against the 76ers during a 106-102 loss in Game 4 on Saturday.

He kept the Heat in this game with 12 points in the final frame, but he did miss a costly free throw with 17.6 seconds left as the Heat now have to overcome a 3-1 deficit. Miami just doesn't have the firepower to guard Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid at the same time, so the deck is stacked against them for Game 5 in Philly on Tuesday. As for Wade, he gets plenty of credit for his strong play down the stretch of games at age 36.

Dwyane Wade said he will take time this summer to decide whether to retire or return to the Heat for one more season.

Wade looked fantastic in Monday's Game 2 victory over the Sixers, finishing with 28 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals. However, he was contemplative after the contest. "A lot of people think that if you do decide to go out, it's because you weren't supposed to be able to play no more. It's not always supposed to be that," said Wade. "Just taking time to think, that's all I'm doing. It's a lot of different, it's a lot of different things that come into play."

Dwyane Wade scored 21 points in the first half and made several key plays late to help the Heat hold off the charging Sixers for a 113-103 win in Philadelphia for Game 2, tying their series at 1-1.

Wade was on fire in the first half and helped the Heat outscore the Sixers 34-13 in the second quarter. He finished by hitting 11-of-18 shots and 6-of-8 free throws for 28 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals, and added a steal and dunk in the fourth quarter, a great pass to James Johnson, and a dagger jumper with 43 seconds left in the game. Wade was gassed, but still came through in the fourth, when Philly was chucking ill-advised shots and turning the ball over too often. Game 3 is Thursday in Miami. Wade's 28 were a team record for points off the bench in a Heat playoff game.
Apr 16 - 11:06 PM

Dwyane Wade (wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Friday vs. the Knicks, scoring seven points with five rebounds, three assists, one block and a triple.

He only played 19 minutes because the game was a blowout, hitting 3-of-9 shots from the field with zero turnovers. The Heat will want Wade to be as fresh as possible for the postseason, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him pick up a DNP in one of Miami's final two games.
Apr 6 - 10:46 PM

Dwyane Wade (wrist) is available to play against the Knicks on Friday.

His injury was never considered serious. The Heat are in an unusual position as they sit in the No. 6 seed, but it's no secret that most teams would probably prefer to play the No. 2 Celtics over the 76ers or Cavs. The Heat could potentially try to tank it to land at seven, and they've already clinched a spot anyway.
Apr 6 - 12:22 PM

Dwyane Wade (wrist) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Knicks.

He did not play on Wednesday, but the wrist injury is not serious. Wade is almost certainly going to get at least one more game off, so he'll be tough to rely on for fantasy.
Apr 5 - 5:26 PM

Dwyane Wade (wrist) is out for Wednesday against the Hawks.

It's the back end of a back-to-back set, so this is likely more about rest than anything else. That should put Rodney McGruder in the lineup while the other perimeter players may see more run, especially Wayne Ellington.
Apr 4 - 6:08 PM

Dwyane Wade (migraine) scored eight points with three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 18 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

He did turn his left ankle in the second half as he stepped on Denzel Valentine's foot, but he stayed in the game. Wade did look flat after that play and it's always possible he will be sitting out. The Heat get the Nets on Saturday and their magic number is one.
Mar 29 - 10:32 PM

Dwyane Wade (migraine) will play against the Bulls on Thursday.

He was put on the injury report for a migraine and he's had a history of them, so hopefully it won't affect him. Wade has six blocks in his last two games with two of those on LeBron James, and he's scored 25 points combined in his last two. He'll be a dicey option to use in fantasy tonight, especially with some possible garbage time coming.
Mar 29 - 5:57 PM

Dwyane Wade (migraine) is expected to play on Thursday vs. the Bulls.

He has a long history of migraines and didn't go through shootaround, but coach Erik Spoelstra is planning for Wade to be available. Wade played just 17 minutes in his last game due to the lopsided score, but his minutes should be back in the mid-20s if he's feeling up to it.
Mar 29 - 11:52 AM

Dwyane Wade had 13 points, seven assists, four rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes during Sunday's OT loss at Indiana.

It was Wade's second game back from a hamstring injury and he looked good, hitting 6-of-13 shots with just one turnover. He played extensively in the fourth quarter and didn't leave the court during overtime, which bodes well for his role going forward. Miami only has one back-to-back set remaining (April 3-4), so that cuts down the likelihood of DNP-CDs, but Wade is still just a low-end fantasy option.
Mar 25 - 8:11 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will warm up with the intention of playing according to coach Erik Spoelstra.

Coach Spoelstra loves this line, but it basically means Wade will play if he doesn't tweak anything in warmups. Spoelstra added that Wade will see limited minutes if he's a go, but that's expected after a five-game absence. Wayne Ellington, Rodney McGruder and Justise Winslow all lose a bit of value with Wade expected to play.
Mar 23 - 6:35 PM

Coach Erik Spoelstra said that Dwyane Wade (hamstring) went through shootaround and "might play" Friday night vs. OKC.

Wade, who has missed each of Miami's last five games, is officially listed as questionable. Friday's game tips-off at 8:00 pm EST, so we should have a final update on Wade's status at approximately 6:30 pm, when Coach Spo addresses the media pregame. Should Wade return, he'll eat into Wayne Ellington, Rodney McGruder and Justise Winslow's minutes.
