Wade tallied eight points (4-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 23 minutes during a 104-102 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday. Wade was not very good Wednesday as he was limited to eight points on 13 field goal attempts. Wade shot below 45 percent from the field for the third straight game and also had four turnovers for the third straight game. He will be capable of good games here and there, but with fairly limited minutes, Wade's value is fairly low.
Wade will be available Wednesday against the Sixers, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. While Wade played 21 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, coach Erik Spoelstra said he has "no plans" to hold Wade out of back-to-backs at this time. As a result, expect the veteran to again be available off the bench one night after putting up 10 points, 11 rebounds and six assists.
Wade recorded 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-2 #pt, 2-2 FT). 11 rebounds and six assists in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 115-112 loss to the Raptors. Wade still has some gas left in the tank and rejoining the Heat seems to have boosted his reserves. He put up a rare rebound-based double-double on Tuesday and provided some much-needed depth from the bench in a narrow loss. There isn't enough of a sample size to see how Wade will fare in his Miami homecoming, but it's likely that he'll experience the same kind of fluctuation that he experienced in Cleveland.
Wade tallied three points (1-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 22 minutes in Friday's 91-85 win over the Bucks. Wade's homecoming fizzled a bit once he actually got on the floor, but the return to South Florida should nevertheless be a positive for his fantasy prospects. The multi-time All-Star should see an ample role in the Heat's backcourt rotation, with a starting job that affords him about 30 minutes per night on average likely in the cards. Wade was serviceable off the bench in Cleveland this season, and he demonstrated he was still capable of solid production while holding down a first-unit role last season with the Bulls. His next chance to see expanded opportunity will come when Miami faces the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night.
Wade will be available off the bench Friday against the Bucks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Wade will make his highly-anticipated return to Miami on Friday night after being sent to his long-time home at Thursday's trade deadline. However, the veteran guard will come off the bench for the contest but should still see a decent amount of minutes given how banged up the Heat's backcourt currently is. Once he gets more acclimated with the guys around him, there's a solid chance Wade will be inserted into the starting rotation.
