Heat's Dwyane Wade will play Sunday against the Raptors

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat has been trying to pace himself when it comes to playing in games on back-to-backs. There have been three times this season in which Wade has opted against playing on the second night of a back-to-back, although one of those times came when he didn't play in either game of a back-to-back.

Despite playing 36 minutes Saturday night in the Heat's win over the Orlando Magic, Wade is going to give it a go against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

He was a game-time decision and has decided to play for the second time this season in the second night of a back-to-back. The only time he did it this season, Wade struggled against the Charlotte Bobcats on the second night. He went just 1-of-7 from the field in 23 minutes to score four points. He also had three assists and four turnovers.

Wade's knee tightened up in that game and he ended up missing the next two games for the Heat.
