Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade won't play in Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to the Palm Beach Post's Ethan J. Skolnick. After warming up prior to the game and coming into Sunday listed as a gametime decision, it appears the Heat won't take any chances with their starting shooting guard.
Mike Miller will start in Wade's place.
Wade has been battling soreness from bone bruises in his knee. The problems kept Wade out of the final six games of the regular season, but he had played in all three of Miami's wins against the Bucks. In the series, he's averaging 18 points, 6.7 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game. Wade has been receiving treatment on the knee, and it appeared that he could play in a more desperate situation.
Though Wade recorded a double-double in Game 3 on Thursday, he shot just 1-for-12 from the floor and had six turnovers as Miami cruised to a 104-91 win.
