Bulls' Dwyane Wade: Cleared to play Wednesday

Wade (mouth) will play in Wednesday's outing versus the Lakers, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

Wade recently had a procedure performed to remove a tooth and despite missing shootaround earlier in the day, he's now been cleared to take the court against the Lakers on Wednesday. Look for him to resume his normal role in the starting lineup and he's not expected to see any restrictions on his playing time. Wade has picked up his play of late, averaging 24.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals across 32.0 minutes over his last two games.
