Guard Dwyane Wade will "give it a go" on Wednesday night as his Miami Heat attempt to eliminate the Chicago Bulls and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, according to CSN Chicago's Aggrey Sam. Wade came into Game 5 listed as day-to-day because of ongoing knee issues.
In the playoffs, Wade has averaged 12.3 points and shot 43.9 percent from the floor. He has played in seven of the eight playoffs games, but was held in Game 4 of the Heat's opening series against the Milwaukee Bucks. With a sweep, Miami gave Wade ample rest, and he fared much better in the first three games of the Chicago series, shooting 55.9 percent.
But in Game 4 on Monday, Wade struggled by hitting 3-of-10 shots from the floor. He ran into Bulls forward Jimmy Butler in the second quarter and reinjured the knee that has been plagued by more than one bone bruise. The issue has been bothering Wade for about two months now, and it kept him from playing in a number of games toward the end of the regular season.
