Wade says left knee sore, swollen, but will play through it

Dwyane Wade has been clearly grounded through much of the playoffs. While he has had some monster games — including Games 4 and 5 of the Finals — his right knee has held him back at times.

Now you can add his left knee to the list of issues.

Wade and Manu Ginobili banged knees on a Wade drive in the first half and Wade was clearly, instantly in pain. He played through it but was late coming out of the locker room for the second half as he got treatment.

And it’s still an issue.

“Early in the game I took a good shot,” Wade said Wednesday after practice. “Right on my left knee, that’s the knee I had surgery on (this past offseason) so that kind of trauma to it at that moment it swelled up. At (halftime) I was trying to do as much as I can, as much treatment….

“It was stiff, I couldn’t do as much as I wanted to but I just tried to do whatever I could.”

So is it stiff and swollen on Wednesday?

“Yes, both.”

He also said he will be out there ready to go in Game 7.

“It’s one more game left, whatever you have inside you muster it up,” Wade said. “I’ll be fine.”

If Wade is pedestrian in Game 7 it puts more pressure on LeBron James to step up big, and Chris Bosh as well. Also in Game 7s, there is always the unexpected hero and the Heat need someone (Mario Chalmers, Mike Miller, anyone) to fill that role for them. Because the Spurs will not go quietly.

        Are you actively trying to be more of a douchnozzle than canton is?

      The only difference is Eva didn’t get an STD from Tony. Another fact, but bandwagoners will see it as hating.

    Drama queen. Get the wheel chair ready.

    There’s canton. Been gone all day. Can’t wait for you to keep quiet after the heat raise the trophy tomorrow

      I’ve been around & posting. Learn how to read.

        I wouldn’t call sheepishly snarking from the basement “posting.” You add nothing of value to any conversation. The non-stop drivel that comes from your twisted deranged little mind is not worth the bandwidth.

        Why not go outside and try living…. or did you get rejected there as well little troll?

    Dude, guys… Going back and forth about “on-court” happenings is one thing, but bringing up “off-court” drama is beneath us all. Lets leave that crap for tabloid talk. Stick to the game-playing comments fellas.

    Heat fans have been all over these articles all year. I haven’t taken you seriously once you said the Knicks were the best team in the east. You’re a joke. Your team is a joke and tomorrow night don’t even bother comming on here complaining about your petty nba conspiracies

    I really wish Dwayne Wade would stop complaining so much, we know he’s hurt. Way too good of a player to bitch so much
