Wade Expects to be Ready for the Playoffs
With the playoffs a week away, Dwyane Wade left the Miami Heat arena Saturday night with his swollen finger in a splint – and considered himself lucky.
Wade played less than 3 minutes before dislocating his left index finger but avoided serious injury as the Heat lost 86-84 to the woeful Washington Wizards.
A doctor reset Wade’s finger, and X-rays were negative.
”I’m not going to cry about it,” he said. ”When I was sitting on the table before they could put it back in, the worst-case scenario was surgery, and the best-case scenario was this. Obviously it will be sore for a couple of days, but I’ll be ready to go when the playoffs start, for sure.”
