Wade Travels with Team; Still Day-to-Day
Dwyane Wade participated in parts of Tuesday’s shootaround, and he will make the trip to Detroit, but his status remains day-to-day.
Even without Wade in the lineup, Chris Bosh said the Heat can make progress. Specifically, reserve players who are getting more minutes with Wade on the bench can use these games as learning opportunities.
“We’re missing [Wade], but the show goes on,” Bosh said. “It’s good for guys who normally don’t get as many minutes; they get to prove what they can do. They get to get a lot of experience and down the line when we are healthy, sometimes Dwyane might get in foul trouble or LeBron [ James] might get in foul trouble, and we’re going to have to call on one of those guys to play.”
