Dwyane Wade's Knee More Painful Than Last Season

Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade acknowledges knee is more painful

Dwyane Wade said before Wednesday’s game that his injured right knee is causing him more pain than the left knee injury that hindered him in last year’s postseason.

This year’s injury is a bone bruise. Last year’s injury involved cartilage in the knee and required arthroscopic surgery in July, forcing him to miss the Olympics.

Despite not having a game the past week, “I feel the same,” Wade said. “Time doesn’t help me right now. It’s unfortunate I’ve had to deal with this thing for two months now.

“When I feel great, I’m going to attack. When I don’t, I know how to be a team player and give of myself for other guys. … Even though my knee isn’t 100 percent, it ain’t gone.”

Meh, built in excuse for any adversity, everyone's beat up at this point. Fall down 7 times get up 8 right? Guess all those unnecessary falls catch up to you like everyone knew they would.

:man10: Well it's true, every season is a built in excuse JUST in case the Heat don't win it all. Ooh, ONE of our players is playing through knee pain, SO much adversity, how will they possibly get through it! So far they've been warriors and beat the mighty Bucks and the remaining half of the Chicago Bulls, so amazing to be able to do that while Wade's knee has a boo-boo. :man6: What I'd really like to know is if his knee is so bad what are they shooting him up with to make him look absolutely fine out there, and is it even legal?

Leave WADE ALONE.

The Heat are playing the BIG 5 RIGHT NOW.

And they beat them. If that isn't adversity, I don't know what is.

I believe that Wade's legitimately injured. It's the fact that he talks about it that bugs me. Kobe, when injured, says he's good to go. He never says that his game is suffering because of his injury. Brady never said a word to the media about his ankle injury that basically shut his skills down in the Superbowl against the boy-wonder Eli, the first time around. That's good sportsmanship. Wade and LeBron whine and complain like little girls. Little girls on roids.

He's not playing well at all right now. His explosive game is hurting along with his knee it seems. He's never had a great outside or midrange game so when he can't get in the lane he's not really effective on the offensive end.

With their current core, I think Miami has maybe 1 or 2 more seasons of seriously competing for a title while Wade can still play at a high level. He's already 31 and chances are the injuries will get worse. If they lose this year, they should consider dealing him while he still has good value. Don't be like the Lakers who kept hanging on to Pau.

Looks like the NBA is going to investigate Wade among a ton of Pacers infractions..... Im sure West will be fined 15k for his elbow and Wade will not be fined but warned for his.

NBA reviewing Heat-Pacers plays

INDIANAPOLIS -- NBA vice president Stu Jackson is reviewing several plays for possible discipline from Friday's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.





Wade

Specifically, the league is believed to be reviewing an elbow Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade gave to Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson in the second half of the Pacers' 97-93 win.

Wade collided with Stephenson running back on defense after turning over the ball. Stephenson crashed to the court on the play, though it was unclear whether the hit was intentional.

Several other plays are under review, including a blow the Pacers' David West gave to Mario Chalmers in the third quarter.

Neither play was called a foul during the game by officials.

It is possible the league could assess a flagrant foul, a fine or a suspension, or do nothing.

After Game 1, the league issued a retroactive flagrant foul to the Pacers' Ian Mahmini.

Earlier this season, Jackson suspended Wade retroactively for a hit on Charlotte Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions. There was no foul initially called on that play.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Could you imagine if they suspended West and Wade? That'd be kind of hilarious. West doesn't deserve it of course, even if you throw a bit of an elbow that's a common foul when it's below the neck, the rules are pretty clear about that, if it is particularly excessive it can be a flagrant but otherwise even if it is 'thrown' a bit, that's not supposed to be a flagrant or suspension.

What Wade did is still bizarre no matter how you look at it. The normal basketball play would be to move around the player, instead he jumped into him and inadvertent or not, elbowed him in the head. Just doesn't make any sense to make that move in the first place! The way Wade jumped means it would take him longer to get back on D than if he had just run and sidestepped stephenson(who was already moving out of the way)Especially if your knee is supposedly so hurt that you're trying to be careful with it? excessively jumping for no reason whatsoever?

If it's an excuse for us it's an excuse for them. Really shouldn't be an excuse for anybody. Injuries are part of the game.

You can't really compare Wade having a sore knee to the Lakers missing half our roster. The Heat are still stacked enough that this shouldn't be an excuse if they do lose, but they probably won't anyway,

That's true. But you can't really compare Wade having the most pain in his knee to players just being naturally banged up over the course of a season. Everyone is banged up, sure, but Wade is substantially more hindered than the others. He is clearly ailing out there.

Not sure if they'll lose but, I sure hope so. And if they do, a lot of it will be because of Wade being limited but I have no pity for them. It's part of the game. I mean, look at the Thunder. You gotta step up and deal with it like the Pacers have without Granger.

As usual Apples/oranges (to steal Kobe's latest jab).

Yeah, Weezy has a point. The two can't be compared. But it's also apples/oranges to say what Wade is dealing with, is the same as every other NBA player that is still playing at this point. He clearly looks limited out there, whereas most of the other players do not. It's not apples/apples just because we hate the Heat cmon.

That is the point they can't be compared. Wade is playing on a bad knee. All players are plying injured at this time. What I find interesting is that this is the same stuff they said about him last year and the year before. It seems to only come up when the Heat lose like Weezy has been saying. It was you that connected his playing through pain to the comments about the "excuses" we used for our team. So if we were to use the "Cmon" it should be towards your desire to compare the two as if they were the same. Hating the Heat for most part has been limited too wanting them to lose and not wanting to hear all he excuses for when they have lost.

^^I seem to remember a lot of sympathy around the league 2 years ago when we were swept out of the playoffs in Dallas around Kobe's knee situation.....

Wade is just going through the motions out there right now. He really looks injured to me.

Im not saying Wade isn't injured. Hell I am not even discounting the impact of him not being 100% for the Heat. He is their 2nd best player which equals problems for them. Even in that Kobe is worth more to LA than Wade is to Miami by a huge margin. The Lakers NEEDED a healthy Kobe to win. As the media has made note the "Stacked" Miami Heat don't need Wade to win.....that is until they lose.
