Dwyane Wade missed Miami’s last two games due to a foot injury, originally suffered in the team’s Nov. 12 win over the Rockets.

The Heat won both without him, but they won’t have to try to do it again Wednesday night versus the Bucks. After completing his second consecutive day of practice without any setbacks, Wade plans to return to game action.

From Michael Wallace of

“No soreness today after a tough day (Monday), so I feel pretty good,” Wade said after pushing through Tuesday’s workout without any limitations. “Now I have to work my way back to get that (rhythm) back. But I’m excited to get back out there and start.”

Wade actually missed three of the games on the team’s six-game road trip when you include the one against the Hawks that he sat out due to illness. Miami won all three contests.

Erik Spoelstra hinted before Saturday night’s win in Phoenix that Wade might have been dinged up beyond the foot injury, and that the extra time off was needed to make sure the small things didn’t become larger issues.

“He doesn’t have anything major, it’s a bunch of little things right now that we don’t want to turn into more,” Spoelstra said.

Miami plays 12 of its next 14 at home, after opening the season on the road for seven of its first 11 games.

    I just hope he is really ready. There is no need to push anything in the regular season. Miami can do as well as it needs to for the next few months with or without Wade. The playoffs? That’s a different story.

    In any case, after a heavy early schedule, things ease up for the Heat. Only five games total in the next two weeks, and only one- December 4th against the Wizards- is on the road. Things will be much more concerning for Heat fans if Wade is still day-to-day after this lull.

      Agreed, no need to rush Wade back. He should sit out untill he’s a 100%.

    For almost the same “identical injury / degree of strain ” , Rondo only sat out 1 game.

    This FRAGILE dude has sat out multiple games over the course of almost 2 weeks !

    Maybe it’s all that “Run-way Model – Diva – Girly – female- make-up – eyeliner wearing” type stuff that is making him even SOFTER !!!

    This dude is falling from the elite ranks FAST !!!

      Rondo is 26 years old.

      FRAGILE?? No, more like a 2-time champ. Another worthless post from you..

        No Talent !

        Rondo is 26 has NOTHIN to do with my assessment.

        Wade has been FRAGILE since he came in the league !

        Attempting to claim, because he is now a ripe old age of 30, he is now a geriatric with osteoporosis !

        The guy is friggin SOFT….more focused on modeling than playing BBALL !
