Dwyane Wade game-time decision Thursday night

Dwyane Wade played against the Clippers Wednesday night despite a sore foot — he had X-rays, they were negative, so he decided to go. The result was 2-of-10 shooting in the Heat loss.

Wade aggravated his left foot injury in that game, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN. Wade is now questionable for Thursday’s game against high-flying Denver. My guess is there is little chance Erik Spoelstra plays him in a back-to-back here.

Wade is averaging 16.9 points per game on 47 percent shooting this season, well off the 22.1 points on 49.7 percent shooting he averaged last season. He’s averaging 2.7 fewer shots per game this season and the big concern is 2.3 of those are coming at the rim where he is finishing 77 percent of his chances (stats via Hoopdata).

This s not the attacking Dwyane Wade of previous years, and the foot may be part of that.

    Maybe he should stop doing the drive into 10 people and get foul routine.

    I really hope this isnt his new role on the offense

    What’s hilarious is Heatle fans were talking about how Kobe wasn’t the same and was breaking down. Well, Kobe’s in his 17 season and STILL better than Mr Gabriel Union! I mean really, isn’t he usually a game time decision? Think of how much of a shell of himself he’ll be when it’s time for LeBron to resign or go elsewhere. Lets see, stay in Miami with a broken down Wade or go to L. A. with Dwight? Or Chicago with Rose? Or NY with Mello? Or back home with Kyrie? All better options than Miami.

      Do you ever shut up? Your team is in shambles and just hired a guy with a history of not being able to cut it.

      Just shut up already.

    What’s hilarious is you’re still posting anything on this site. Every sungl day on every single article you post on, you get corrected for something ignorant you’ve typed. You get verbally bashed regularly, yet you keep coming back for more.
    Are you sado masochistic? You must me.

    I’ve never seen someone take this much abuse on a daily basis. And you do it under 2 different screen names lakerluver/bozosforall.
    You’re a laughingstock. Everyone on this site knows it. I’m embarrassed for you, I have to be, you obviously have no shame.

    Do everyone, especially yourself a favor, stop posting. It’s gone past the point of ridiculousness.

    You’re forgetting that one of those guys you just mentioned may rather play with LeBron in Miami. Hmmm. Didn’t think of that did you?

    As for tonight, just sit Wade. Teams are like 0-40 on the second night of an LAC/Den back to back. We’re going to lose tonight. Probably by a wide margin. Doesn’t matter. Rather get Eade rested and healthy.

    What’s REALLY hilarious is how you pathetically troll every single Heat article, spewing the same repititive comments ad nauseum. Who are you trying to convince? I think the answer is YOU. I know I won’t be jumping to any sort or conclusions based on literally two weeks of an eight month season. Go ahead and believe Wade is done, go ahead and call the Heat one-hit wonders. I’d say it’ll be great to see this settled in the finals, but then, your Lakers will actually have to get there first, won’t they? Great hire on D’antoni- that decision was CLEARLY all about basketball and winning championships, right? And how is Nash working out so far?

    I’m sure you’ll go hide behind your “these guys work in basketball for a living therefore questioning anything they ever do is invalid” creed. Say it enough times and it just might come true, buddy!

    First of all when you talk LAKERS, out of respect, use ALL CAPS. Secondly, if you’re so blind that you can’t see that Wade is falling apart then I can’t help you. It took a superhuman effort by LeBron last year to get Miami over the hump. That and the fact that they played the team they match up with the best in the West. Now that Bron finally has a ring lets see if his hunger for another one is as strong. Because, judging by what Wade looks like, Miami’s going to need another otherworldly performance. And don’t criticize me for taking shots at your Heat, you clowns take shots at the LAKERS too!!

      C’mon, man. I’m just as much a Laker fan as you, but kindly put a lid on your demand that the ALL CAPS should be used by non-Laker fans as well. To each his own, dude. That’s respect.

      Wade is just 30 years old and he doesn’t have the basketball mileage as Kobe. I don’t see it as wear and tear. The man has heart wanting to slug it out. Maybe he ended up a bit disoriented with slight discomfort but significant enough to affect his game. Hopefully he isn’t coming from an injury that’s going to be season-ending if Wade decides to force the issue. But if he is given the green light, then go for it.

      I see the Heat’s Big Three still dominating the East in at least 3 years. Sheer talent didn’t cause that Heat championship. It was CHEMISTRY. They know their roles. Despite injuries they pulled it off. It’s the STRUGGLE that makes the victory sweeter.

      Yeah, sure. Heat and Wade are struggling. Big deal.

      If they do repeat and prove that they aint One-Heat Wonders, such victory is even beyond sweet.

      I wish our Lakers would be at full strength too — and so with the rest of them great teams. There’s nothing like giants battling out in full strength.

    Uff. Isn’t lakerslurper the most hateable person on this site?

    Too bad Kobes superhuman effort the last 2 years had them swept out 1 year and a 4-1 near sweep the next.

    I think you like attention, and you don’t care if its positive or negative.

    You’re such a sad pathetic man.

    Shouldn’t this heading read “Eric Bledsoe’s bitch game time decision Thursday night”?
