UPDATE: After some confusion, Dwyane Wade wil play tonight against the Knicks, reports the Sun Sentinel.
Dwyane Wade will miss his seventh straight game because of a sprained ankle according to ESPN, sitting out the Heat's game at home versus the Knicks Friday.
However, the Palm Beach Post reports that Wade is still a gametime decision. I'll guess we'll officially know at gametime, then.
Wade sprained his ankle during a Jan. 14 game against the Denver Nuggets. Without Wade this season, the Heat are 7-1.
Miami will likely just continue doing what it has done over the past four games, putting the ball in LeBron's hands more while using a committee of James Jones, Mike Miller, Norris Cole, Mario Chalmers and Shane Battier to fill Wade's time.
Wade, 30, is averaging 19.6 points, 5.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.7 blocks in 35.1 minutes per game this season.
Miami next game after tonight is the big one Sunday against Chicago, which I'm sure Wade is eager to play in.
