Dwyane Wade was injured during the third quarter against the Orlando Magic, taking a hard bump from Dwight Howard on his way to the rim. Howard appeared to mostly go for the ball, but both of his big arms hit Wade up high with force. The smaller Wade fell and landed on his back, rolling over to his front and lying facedown for a moment, clearly in pain.
He was able to stand and shoot his free throws before hobbling to the sideline, where he was immediately taken into the locker room.

TNT’s Craig Sager reported Wade insisted on taking his shots from the line before going in, and that he’s in the locker room working on getting his injury stretched out. This has been a very physical game, with Hedo Turkoglu also missing time due to a shot to the knee from LeBron James.
