Dwyane Wade Had Knee Drained Before Game 4 Heat Win Vs. Pacers

Dwyane Wade broke out of a slump in a major way in Game 4 of the Miami Heat's series against the Indiana Pacers, with 30 points, nine rebounds and six assists as LeBron James' cohort in the huge victory. Though the All-NBA guard wouldn't reveal anything in front of cameras, ESPN.com's Michael Wallace reports that sources say Wade had his left knee drained before Game 4.

Wade shot just 2-13 in Miami's Game 3 loss, leading to speculation about what caused the disastrous performance. With the knee revelation, the question now turns to whether he'll be healthy enough to help lead the Heat to a series victory. Even with Wade and James putting together huge performances on Sunday, Indiana remained within striking distance late.

Wade hadn't scored 30 points in a game since March 30 against Toronto, when he had 30 with six assists and zero turnovers.
