Heat’s Dwyane Wade questionable for Game 4

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade planned to receive “a couple of hours” of treatment on his injured right knee on Friday. Coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters – including The Associated Press – that he wants to see how the All-Star responds to treatment before determining his status for Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks.


"Structurally, his knee is as good as it's been in years. That's why we're treating it day to day," Spoelstra said. "This was a bone bruise. What it needs is time and it gets better. But what it also needs is no collisions."


Wade continues to recover from three bone bruises that forced him to miss six games near the end of the regular season. He was able to return for the team’s regular season finale, but he continues dealing with discomfort into the playoffs.

The way Wade plays the game, he’s constantly getting nicked up, so his body won’t get a true break until there is some time off in between series. Miami could elect to give Wade Game 4 off – with the Heat leading the Bucks 3-0 – in an effort to provide him with more rest. If the Heat are able to complete the sweep minus Wade, the veteran would get five more days off before Round 2.

If the Heat were to sit Wade, Ray Allen is available to fill in. He stepped up in Game 3 and scored 23 points for Miami.
