Dwyane Wade Returns To Game 5 of 2011 NBA Finals After Injury

After missing four minutes of the 1st quarter and the first three minutes and change of the second quarter, Dwyane Wade returned to the court in Game 5 of the 2011 NBA Finals. A left hip contusion left him questionable to return, but Wade wasn't going to miss the rest of this game.

Wade made a bank shot a few minutes after he returned to the court, giving the Heat a 47-44 lead. So far the second quarter has been a contest of three-pointers. Dallas has the advantage in that category so far with three in the quarter to Miami's one. However, Mario Chalmers' three gave the Heat a four-point lead at that point.

LeBron James has six points, five rebounds and three assists so far. He's looking different than how he appeared in Game 4.
