Knee Injury Taking Toll on Dwyane Wade
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has an usual method for trying to relieve the pain in his bruised left knee.
Wade said he is using tape to move his kneecap over into a position that is more comfortable.
Though it’s known Wade is battling the bruised knee, for the first time in a game it was revealed how much pain he is experiencing. It happened just before he took a shot with 7:21 left in the second quarter of Miami’s 88-65 victory against the Chicago Bulls in Game 4 on Monday.
Wade tweaked his knee, favored it, grimaced in pain and stopped moving while the action moved to the other end of the floor after his missed shot.
“Just a shooting pain. It hurt,” Wade said. “Eventually I was able to re-tape my knee, come back out and try to finish.”
