Dwyane Wade (bruised knee) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.

This will be the first game that Wade misses this season due to a knee injury, but he does have a history with knee injuries, so we'll be watching this situation closely. Look for Mario Chalmers and Luol Deng to be the primary options on offense, and both guys looks like quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues.

Dwyane Wade has a bruised knee that is currently being examined, and he will be a game-time decision Sunday vs. the Celtics.

If Wade is forced to sit on Sunday, Mario Chalmers is going to get all the run he can handle, and will serve as a quality option in daily leagues. Luol Deng will also be asked to step up on the offensive end, and he'll have a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics. Stay tuned.
Dec 21 - 4:30 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 28 points on 12-of-26 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, eight assists and one steal in Friday's loss.

Wade is getting a ton of looks right now and owners should do what they can to move him while he's producing like this. The Heat aren't going to run him into the ground just so they can get trounced in the first round of the playoffs, if they make it that far.
Dec 20 - 1:35 AM

Dwyane Wade said that he's completely over his stomach virus.

The virus really didn't limit him too much at all, as he went off for a season-high 42 points during his last outing. Wade is going to be asked to carry Miami's offense while Chris Bosh (calf) is sidelined, and he remains an excellent option in daily leagues.
Dec 19 - 11:37 AM

Dwyane Wade hit 12-of-19 shots for a season-high 42 points to go along with four rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

The bad news is he hit just 16-of-21 free throws and committed six turnovers, but the fact he played so well in a pair of back-to-backs (while battling an illness tonight) speaks volumes. The Heat are off until Friday, so hopefully Wade is able to get some rest and will be ready to go. He had 28 on Tuesday against the Nets.
Dec 18 - 1:01 AM

Dwyane Wade (illness) will play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He was very ill on Tuesday and reportedly feels better heading into tonight. Wade played well through the illness, scoring 28 points in a win over the Nets. With Chris Bosh out, he's going to be very busy and should be in all lineups.
Dec 17 - 5:52 PM

Dwyane Wade led the Heat to a win over the Nets on Tuesday, finishing with 28 points, five boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He definitely made his owners nervous when he appeared to tweak his knee late in the game, but he stayed on the floor and was able to finish what was a great night for the Heat. Wade looked very active all night and looks determined to shoulder the load without Chris Bosh (calf) in the lineup. As you have learned by now, check back before Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz to see if Wade is active, as it wouldn't be out of the question for him to rest on the second night of a back-to-back set.
Dec 16 - 11:53 PM

The Heat and Nets game was temporarily delayed due to a leak in the roof at the Barclays Center, but the game is now expected to resume.

In what was a bizarre series of events at the Barclays Center, it now appears that the leak in the roof has been resolved and both teams are back out on the court. There is no longer any need to worry about a cancellation and the game will go on.
Dec 16 - 8:19 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Wade will draw a very favorable matchup vs. the Nets tonight, and with Chris Bosh (calf) also sidelined, he's going to be asked to carry the offensive workload. He makes for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues, despite the fact that he is sick.
Dec 16 - 6:07 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) missed Tuesday's shootaround in advance of the Heat's game against the Nets.

With Shabazz Napier and Danny Granger both sick and Josh McRoberts (knee) and Chris Bosh (calf) out, the Heat may enter Tuesday's game with a short bench. We'll update Wade's status prior to game time, but Mario Chalmers and Luol Deng could be looking at huge minutes against the Nets.

Dwyane Wade (illness) missed practice on Monday and is questionable to play against the Nets on Tuesday.

The good news is that he did travel with the team. Players are missing games due to illnesses all over the place, but Miami is really going to need Wade with all of their injuries. Miami does play four games this week, so owners in weekly leagues can still probably plug him in there. If he's out, Mario Chalmers will benefit most while Luol Deng figures to help out. Shabazz Napier would also get more run.
Dec 15 - 2:23 PM

Dwyane Wade played through an illness and scored a season-high 29 points in Friday's road win over the Jazz, hitting 10-of-16 shots (1-of-1 3PTs, 8-of-12 FTs) with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

Wade sure didn't look sick tonight and these are the types of lines he needs to make up for his absences and somehow justify his ADP. Chris Bosh went for 22 and nine with a steal and two blocks as his excellent year continues, and Luol Deng scored 14 points with six rebounds, a steal and a three in the win.
Dec 13 - 3:33 AM

Dwyane Wade (illness) will play Friday vs. the Jazz.

Get him active as Wade remains a must-start guy every time he's in the lineup. He also has a favorable matchup tonight against the Jazz, and although he's sick, he's still Dwyane Wade and worthy of consideration in daily leagues.
Dec 12 - 7:26 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) missed shootaround and is doubtful to play Friday vs. the Jazz.

If Wade can't go, expect Mario Chalmers to return to the starting lineup and see a major increase in his offensive workload. Chalmers has been solid with the starting unit, boasting averages of 17.4 points, 6.5 assists, and 1.1 three-pointers per game, and he'll make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Wade is indeed ruled out.
