Dwyane Wade News
Trans. Nov 2 4:26 ET (Nov 2 4:26 ET ) NEW YORK, Nov 2 (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 ... ...
Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade helped the Miami Heat close the preseason with their fourth straight win, but the reserves preserved the victory. Bosh scored 21 points, Wade added 16, and the Heat defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 104-98 on Friday night. ''I thought we did a good job, especially late in the preseason, of getting to our game and everyone still feeling comfortable in their roles.'' The Heat bench pushed the lead to 17 early in the fourth quarter. Despite Memphis pulling within 94-91 near the 4-minute mark, the Grizzlies were unable to get closer.
Dwyane Wade hit 11-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for 26 points, two rebounds, six assists and a block on Tuesday.
The Scoop:He's back. How long his body will allow him to be back is anyone's guess, but he's the best player on the Heat by a mile, and is going to return first-round value as long as he's healthy enough to play.
The Scoop:"I'm still finding my way with this team and this offense," Wade said. "Right now, with our offense, most of the guys are on the perimeter, so if I just attack, then I'm not just going to be able to do that all game. I'm not 20 years old, where I'm going to throw my body in there all the time." No, he certainly is not 20-years-old anymore, and coming off of a season in which he only suited up for 54 games, Wade makes for a very risky selection come draft day.
The Scoop:Coach Erik Spoelstra isn't expected to rest Wade too much this season, but his knees are going to make him a risky asset in fantasy leagues. While he did lose some weight on the paleo diet, he will likely need his days off on occasion.
Dwyane Wade hit just 4-of-12 shots, but drained a couple 3-pointers and finished Tuesday's loss with 16 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals.
The Scoop:He says he's going to shoot more 3-pointers this season and it happened tonight. Our broken record says that if he can stay healthy and play in 65-70 games, he's going to be a draft-day steal.
The Scoop:It's been five seasons since Flash averaged more than one three-pointer per game and his career 28.9 shooting percentage from downtown underlines that fact. While the addition of a three-point shot to his game would be an unexpected bonus for fantasy owners, Wade's health is more of a concern after missing 28 games last season. Wade can still be a very productive fantasy asset, but owners need to be aware of the risk their assuming by drafting the 32-year-old.
The Scoop:Miami's personnel lends itself to a small-ball attack, and it will be interesting to see how often they use Deng or Granger to backup Josh McRoberts (toe) during the regular season. Spo is still experimenting with lineups and Granger is destined for a reserve role, so this doesn't impact his season outlook.
Dwyane Wade scored 12 points and added 7 assists against the Cavaliers on Saturday.
The Scoop:Apart from the 4-of-10 line from the field, Wade actually had a pretty decent game. Wade has publicly said that he wants to play in every game this season, but we don't really see that happening. However, if his knees hold up, he could be a great risk/reward pick in the middle rounds if you are feeling lucky.
MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James was welcomed at Dwyane Wade's wedding last month. Udonis Haslem continues to maintain a friendship with his former teammate. Chris Andersen still wears his sneakers.
The Scoop: None.
