After missing three games with a sore foot, Miami Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade will return to the team's starting lineup on Tuesday night, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The Heat are visiting the Golden State Warriors.
The paper reports that Wade might play restricted minutes but opted to play after participating in the team's Tuesday morning shootaround.
"I'm not trying to play my normal minutes, just get out there and get back into the groove of things."Wade is averaging 18.8 points, 6.5 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game in six appearances so far this season. The Heat are 5-1 with Wade in the lineup; they won games against the Indiana Pacers, Atlanta Hawks and New Jersey Nets without him.
"It's discomfort," he said. "It's going to be discomfort. I didn't feel any pain today and that's kind of how I go about it, see if I feel any pain. Discomfort is what athletes play with, so I'm not worried about that, as long as there's no pain."
On Monday, Wade expressed concern that he might have been dealing with Plantar Fasciitis in his foot.
