Dwyane Wade is back, and just in time.

After sitting nine straight games because of a hamstring injury, Wade returned to the Heat lineup on Saturday against the Hawks.

"Now it's about getting comfortable and pushing it to see where I'm at," Wade told reporters before Saturday's game.

Wade hasn't played since March 26, and has missed 28 total games for the Heat this season because of different injuries and ailments. But the team is obviously most keen on having him back for the postseason, and in good game shape.

"He's going to be extremely winded," LeBron James said. "But we just hope he can come through the game and make strides and move forward and not have a setback."
