Heat G Dwyane Wade returns to practice
Dwyane Wade returned to practice with the Miami Heat on Friday after missing the last two games with a sprained right ankle and is questionable for Saturday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Heat shouldn’t be in a hurry to rush him back as they’re 5-0 without him in the lineup this season.
Lebron James has been outstanding in the point guard’s absence. He’s averaged 32.3 points in the four games he’s played without Wade this season.
“He’s been doing a lot of conditioning and getting himself healthy,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said on Friday. “He’s making a heck of a lot of progress.”
Wade has averaged 19.6 points, and 5.4 assists in nine games this season.
