Dwyane Wade’s injuries have been very well documented over the last couple of seasons. The guard struggled to stay healthy down the stretch of last year’s playoffs, but said that he would hopefully not need knee surgery to get rid of the nagging injuries and opted to just rest instead. After a two month break following the NBA Finals, it seems that Wade is ready to get back on a basketball court again.
Speaking at his third annual fantasy basketball camp on Friday morning, the Miami Heatguard said he hasn’t done any basketball-related activities since the NBA Finals in an effort to rest and treat his troublesome knees. Wade plans to hit the court this weekend for the first time since undergoing OssaTron shock treatment to both knees last month to help with tendinitis.
“I won’t be ready for opening night when training camp starts,” Wade said. “But I’ll be ready for opening night when opening night gets here.”
The most important thing for Wade right now is to get healthy enough to play and hopefully avoid injuries. He has had various problems with his knees in the last couple of years, mostly struggling with bone bruises last season. With a lot of the top contenders around the league getting stronger, the Heat will certainly need the best of what Wade can give the team in order to have a chance to three-peat.
