The Heat have announced that Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade will miss tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a knee injury. According to the Heat, Wade is “day-to-day.”

This will be the 10th game the 30-year old Wade has missed this season. When healthy, Wade has been amazing — he’s currently averaging 22.8 points per game on 50.3% shooting from the field, and is 2nd in the NBA in PER this season. According to the Heat, Wade’s knee was “banged up” in Sunday’s game against the Celtics, when Wade scored only 15 points on 6-17 shooting from the field.

The Heat have lost 3 of their last 5 games, with all 3 of their losses coming by double-digits, so they’re certainly hoping that Wade will be back in the lineup sooner rather than later, especially considering that the Heat play the red-hot Thunder on Wednesday night.

    “When Wade has been healthy he’s been amazing”? Hmm, if you say so. Wade will probably be one of those players who will go downhill rapidly. When he can no longer slash his way to the rim then what? As he loses his athleticism I envision him being a smaller version of Vince Carter, a guy who stays outside bombing away but is not a good shooter.

    Tough to swallow as a heat fan, however the heat are now 9-1 without wade in the lineup this year.

    What’s new? He should just take off the regular season and play in the play-offs. I’m sure Lebron and the the rest of them can hold it down.
