Dwyane Wade News
Trans. Nov 2 4:28 ET (Nov 2 4:28 ET ) NEW YORK (Reuters) - Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade joined the chorus of people criticizing why some sports events were taking place in New York following the devastation caused by superstorm Sandy. Speaking to reporters before Friday night's National Basketball Association clash against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, Wade said the game should have been postponed. "I just felt that (there were) bigger things to be concerned about than us being here to play a basketball game," he told reporters. "Obviously, sports ... ...
The Scoop:Cole was lousy as a starter on Wednesday and hasn't been worth owning in a 25-minute role this season, averaging a mere 6.7 points, 0.7 threes, 2.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game. His poor percentages are bad news in most fantasy formats and owners should be able to find more reliable options while Wade remains day-to-day.
The Scoop:He sat out on Sunday to get some additional rest, but the good news is that he is dealing with a just a bruise to his knee. We will update his status on Monday, but expect Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers to pick up the slack if Wade sits on Tuesday. Stay tuned.
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.
The Scoop: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.
The Scoop: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.
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 Scoop: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.
The Scoop: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.
