Dwyane Wade injured his hamstring during Tuesday's game against the Bucks and will not return.
It's important to note that this injury occurred to his other hamstring, and not the one that cost him two games earlier in the month. Judging by Wade's body language, it looks like Wade could see some additional time on the sidelines until he is at or close to 100 percent. The Heat don't have a true backup shooting guard, so Mario Chalmers, Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole could see big minutes in the backcourt in the short-term. Wade finished tonight's game with 12 points, one board, four assists and two steals. Jan 27 - 9:12 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 26 points on 10-of-18 shooting during Sunday's win over the Bulls, adding three rebounds, three assists, and five turnovers.

Wade was also a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe, and it appears he's completely over his illness that held him back during Friday's game. Wade also reportedly told Hassan Whiteside to shut up and block shots, which resulted in Whiteside setting a franchise and career-high in blocked shots (12) tonight. Nice.

Dwyane Wade played through an illness on Friday against the Pacers, finishing with 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting with zero rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

The illness certainly affected his performance and with six turnovers owners would have been fine if he just skipped this one. He's a major shutdown candidate and owners will want to root for the Heat to stay healthy and competitive for a playoff spot.

Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng will start against the Pacers on Friday.

We're still waiting to see what's up with Hassan Whiteside. Wade appears to be good to go and should run the offense for the Heat tonight as one of the highest usage rate guys in the NBA. Start him in your standard leagues.
Jan 23 - 6:38 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) is planning on playing giant the Pacers on Friday.

He is in the arena and there's no indication that he will sit. Wade missed shootaround this morning and he's likely going to be less than 100 percent. He'll be a risky play in DFS tonight and we'll look for an other update regarding his status in the starting lineup.
Jan 23 - 5:52 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) didn't go through Friday's shootaround and he's questionable to play vs. the Pacers.

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is also questionable but it sounds like Luol Deng (illness) will be back in uniform, giving Miami a much-needed boost if Wade isn't able to suit up. The Heat are unlikely to determine his status until close to the 7:30 ET tip-off in Miami.

Heat president Pat Riley said on Thursday that his team has "underachieved" this season.

"We’ve had a lot of opportunities, 10 or 12 games to overcome adversity ... and we haven’t been able to," Riley said. "We are in the fight with five or six other teams for probably the playoffs, spots six, seven and eight." Miami's 18-24 record puts them in the No. 7 seed in the East, but they're just three games above the No. 11 seed Celtics. Dwyane Wade and company will try to pad their lead with a home win vs. the Pacers on Friday.

Dwyane Wade was fined $15,000 by the NBA for making an obscene gesture during Wednesday's loss to Charlotte.

It has been a rough season for the Heat so it's not surprising to see Wade let out some frustration. On the bright side, Wade was able to play through his hamstring injury on Wednesday and it didn't appear that he was limited in any fashion. As always, simply check the injury report before inserting Wade into lineups as his next DNP is always right around the corner.
Jan 22 - 4:15 PM

Dwyane Wade played through a hamstring injury on Wednesday and hit just 8-of-21 shots for 17 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals.

He missed a couple games with the injury and has now played in two straight with it. Wade may or may not be out of the woods, but given his history, there's a chance he misses another game sooner than later. Wade should basically be considered day-to-day for the rest of the season.
Jan 21 - 9:59 PM

Updating a previous report, Dwyane Wade will start Wednesday's game in Charlotte.

Beat writer Joe Goodman reported that Wade was receiving treatment on his hamstring pre-game, casting some doubt on his status, but the team's official Twitter account has since listed him as a starter. Get him into your active lineups.
Jan 21 - 6:28 PM

Dwyane Wade received treatment on his hamstring prior to Wednesday's game, and he's not a lock to play vs. the Hornets.

The team hasn't officially updated his status so the odds are good that he'll suit up, but owners should stay tuned for confirmation prior to tip-off. If he is ruled out at the last minute, Shabazz Napier should slide into the starting lineup for the short-handed Heat.
Jan 21 - 6:24 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) logged 34 minutes in his return on Tuesday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-18 shooting in a tough home loss to the Thunder.

Miami was rolling in the first half until starting C Hassan Whiteside sprained his ankle, and they didn't have enough firepower to keep up with OKC down the stretch. Wade's defensive rating trailed only Mario Chalmers on Tuesday and he led the team with six assists, so it's safe to say that his hamstring is feeling better. Miami fell to 18-23 with the loss, but that's still good enough for the 7th seed in the East.
Jan 20 - 10:28 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) said he will play Tuesday vs. OKC.

"I don't know how good I'll be, but I'm gonna go out there and play," said Wade. While he may be limited tonight, Wade is a must-start guy every time he's in the lineup, so go ahead and get him active. Shabazz Napier will head to the bench with the return of Wade, so those that made a speculative add of Shabazz feel free to send him back to the waiver wire.
Jan 20 - 6:28 PM

Dywane Wade (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said that Wade will warm up tonight with the intention of playing, so owners should check back for an official update closer to tip-off. If Wade is able to go, Shabazz Napier would head back to the bench, and his value would take a significant hit. Stay tuned.
Jan 20 - 5:53 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) went through a full practice on Monday, and he's being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

Wade has missed two straight games, and with the Heat having been off since Friday, he's had some good time to rest and recover. Still, with Wade's history of hamstring issues, the team won't push him to return before he's 100 percent ready. Owners will have to check back for an update on Tuesday. If he sits, Mario Chalmers is in line to benefit, as usual.
