Dwyane Wade to start against the Thunder on Wednesday
Dwyane Wade has been in and out of the Heat lineup all season, and upon his return most recently, came off the bench. But he says he's done with that.
Go ahead and cross Dwyane Wade's name off the Sixth Man of the Year list.
Wade has been in and out of the lineup all season and upon his return most recently, came off the bench against the Spurs on Sunday. But he says he's done with that. With the Thunder coming to town on Wednesday, Wade says he plans to be back in the starting five.
"I asked Spo to take me out as a starter that one game, but I didn't ask him to do it the whole year," Wade told reporters on Monday. "So we can stop that conversation."
Against the Spurs, in his bench role Wade played 24 minutes and went 3-8 from the floor for eight points.
Wade's bothersome knees have caused him to sit 13 games this season, but when he's played, he's been mostly effective.
Wade, 32, is averaging 18.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 31 games this season.
