Dwyane Wade has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a fractured right elbow.
An MRI on Thursday morning confirmed that Wade has a "sprain and a small fracture" in his right elbow. The Bulls have ruled him out for the regular season, but it's currently unclear if he can make it back in time for the playoffs if the Bulls can sneak in (he'll be re-evaluated in a week). With Wade out, Jimmy Butler gets a massive bump in usage and Rajon Rondo benefits as well. However, the biggest winner could be rookie Denzel Valentine. Over his last five games, Valentine has averaged 9.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.6 triples. Wade has a player option for $23.8 million next season and it's possible he has already played his last game as a Bull. Mar 16 - 12:46 PM

Dwyane Wade (right elbow) will have an MRI on Thursday.

He was originally called questionable to return, but the team quickly changed his status to out for game in the fourth. The MRI is scheduled for the morning, so hopefully the Bulls have an update in the early afternoon. The Bulls have a one-game trip to Washington on Friday, so there's a good chance Wade is out for that one. If he's out, we could see more Denzel Valentine or even Michael Carter-Williams. Considering how messy the Bulls rotation is, there really isn't a pickup to make unless you're dropping something you won't miss at all.

Dwyane Wade will not return on Wednesday due to a right elbow injury.

He took a fall in the second half and is likely to be re-evaluated in the next day or so. The Bulls are going to close out with Denzel Valentine, so he could benefit. Of, course Jimmy Butler and the other starters would get more shots. Wade checked out with eight points, three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.
Mar 15 - 10:07 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting vs. the Hornets on Monday.

Wade did go down holding his right leg at one point and was being looked at by the trainer on the sidelines, but we later learned that he simply had a cramp. He was able to play through the issue and logged 32 minutes in the win, adding five assists, one rebound, two steals and one block. He should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. Memphis.
Mar 13 - 10:23 PM

Dwyane Wade was held to just eight points on 4-of-11 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Celtics, adding three boards, two steals, zero assists and one turnover in 26 minutes.

Through the first quarter of action, Chicago only managed to put a total nine points on the board, going a pathetic 3-of-22 from the field, and they ended the first half of action with a season-low 26 points on 25.6 percent shooting. The massive blowout can help explain the low-minute total for Wade, but owners can expect a bounce-back performance on Monday in Charlotte.
Mar 12 - 6:02 PM

Fred Hoiberg said the he's planning on having Dwyane Wade play in both games of Chicago's upcoming back-to-back set, Sunday in Boston and Monday in Charlotte.

Wade logged 25 minutes as a starter in his first game back from a two-game stint on the sidelines on Friday, but his minutes should start trending back into the 30s over these next few games. With Wade back in action, Jimmy Butler loses some touches on offense, and Paul Zipser will be relegated to a non-factor in most formats.
Mar 12 - 2:13 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 21 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Rockets during a 115-94 loss on Friday.

He was on fire in the first half with all 21 of his points coming before halftime. Wade even scored 12 of the first 18 points for the Bulls. After a good first, things just fell apart. The Bulls scored a combined 30 points in the second and third quarters to lead to this bad home blowout. He looks healthy and will look to get it going again on Sunday.
Mar 10 - 11:12 PM

Jerian Grant, Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler, Bobby Portis and Robin Lopez will start against the Rockets on Friday.

Coach Fred Hoiberg said rotation changes should be coming, but he'll go with the usual lineup for this game. We should see Joffrey Lauvergne get some run off the bench while Nikola Mirotic looks to be out of the rotation right now. Go ahead and put Wade back in your lineups in this non-back-to-back game.
Mar 10 - 7:31 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said Dwyane Wade (thigh) will play Friday night vs. the Rockets.

Wade had missed each of the Bulls last two games due to a strained left quad but practiced on Thursday and has been trending in the right direction. Wade's return will bump Paul Zipser back to the bench. Jerian Grant, Rajon Rondo and Cameron Payne will also see their minutes reduced. There has been no talk of Chicago limiting Wade on Friday, so fantasy owners can insert him into starting lineups without hesitation.

Dwyane Wade (thigh) went through practice on Thursday and coach Fred Hoiberg anticipates Wade will play.

That's a great sign for Wade to suit up this weekend. He missed the last two games and was a game-time call for each, so Wade should be considered closer to probable for Friday against the Rockets. If he is back, that would take some usage away from Jimmy Butler, the other guards wouldn't play as much and Paul Zipser would move back to the bench. By the way, coach Fred Hoiberg hinted a change could come to the rotation, but obviously this doesn't affect Wade or Butler.
Mar 9 - 2:41 PM

Dwyane Wade (thigh) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

He was limited in practice on Tuesday and will miss his second straight game. With Jimmy Butler on track to play, he should be looking at a huge role if he's healthy enough. Paul Zipser figures to get another start, but he's a dicey play after just four points in 31 minutes on Monday. Wade could be managed going forward now that the Bulls look like a playoff team.
Mar 8 - 5:40 PM

Dwyane Wade (thigh) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Wade was very limited during Tuesday's practice and wasn't even able to participate during shootaround, so he's looking much closer to doubtful for tonight's game. Owners can expect to get another update closer to tip-off, but with Wade likely to spend Wednesday's game watching from the sidelines, we could see Paul Zipser earning another start and Denzel Valentine will have the opportunity for some extended minutes. Jimmy Butler (illness) will be extremely busy if he can play.

Dwyane Wade (thigh) has been downgraded to doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Wade was a very limited participant during Tuesday's practice, and both him and head coach Fred Hoiberg stressed that they don't want this thigh injury to turn into a lingering issue, so it seems pretty unlikely that Wade will be taking the court Wednesday night. With him likely out, Paul Zipser could be looking at another start, and it'll be Jimmy Butler running the show on offense.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Bulls were embarrassed by the Pistons on Monday without Wade and Rondo, but they figure to benefit from a match-up with the lowly Magic. Despite the game getting out of hand late, Jimmy Butler still played 39 minutes and posted a healthy 27/9/4 line including 13 trips to the free-throw line. Butler will remain an elite target in all formats tomorrow night with Wade out, with Bobby Portis and Robin Lopez likely to be a bit more involved offensively.

Dwyane Wade (thigh) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.

Wade acknowledged that he wasn't able to do much during Tuesday's practice, and he doesn't want this thigh injury to turn into a lingering issue, so he feels a bit closer to doubtful for tomorrow night. If Wade is again forced to the sidelines on Wednesday, Paul Zipser would get another opportunity to start, and Jimmy Butler would be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense.

Dwyane Wade (thigh) will not play on Monday vs. the Pistons.

Wade did not go through the morning shootaround, but the fact that he was originally listed as a game-time call means that he's likely day-to-day. His next chance to play will be on Wednesday vs. the Magic. Jimmy Butler's usage rate rises from 22.9 to 31.2 with Wade off the court, so he should be a strong play in all formats tonight. Expect to see more of Denzel Valentine as well, though it's currently unclear who will start in Wade's place. Michael Carter-Williams is also a candidate for more minutes as well with Rajon Rondo (ankle) considered a game-time call.
