The Cavaliers exercised Wade's $1.93 million team option for 2022-23 on Wednesday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Wade averaged 5.3 points and 2.9 rebounds per game across 51 appearances before his season came to an early end after suffering a torn meniscus. The Kansas State product has already resumed on-court activities, but it's unclear when he'll be able to play again.
Wade (knee) has returned to on-court activities, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Wade underwent surgery to treat ongoing issues with the meniscus in his right knee at the end of March and was sidelined for the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign. He made 51 appearances during the season and averaged 5.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 19.2 minutes per game. The Cavaliers have a $1.91 million team option on Wade for next season, so his health during the offseason will likely be an important factor in the team's decision.
Wade underwent successful surgery Monday to treat ongoing issues with the meniscus in his right knee and will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign. Wade made 51 appearances and averaged 5.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 19.2 minutes per game. Before his injury, the third-year forward had been operating as a fill-in starter for Jarrett Allen and was a key part of Cleveland's rotation. In his absence, Lamar Stevens, Cedi Osman and Kevin Love are all candidates for increased roles.
Wade (knee) has been diagnosed with a partially torn right meniscus and will miss several weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Wade had served as a fill-in starter following Jarrett Allen's broken finger, but he now becomes the latest Cavaliers player to hit the shelf for an extended period. With the Cavs set to return to the postseason for the first time since 2018, Wade hasn't been ruled out for the year, but given that he could miss upward of a month, it's quite possible that he's played his final game of 2021-22. The Kansas State product is averaging 5.3 points and 1.0 threes per game in 19.2 minutes.
Wade (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Lakers. Wade is slated to miss a fifth straight game due and is reportedly dealing with a possible meniscus injury. Lamar Stevens has started each of the games that Wade has missed and will likely be in the starting unit again Monday.
