The Heat season is dismal, the injured guard might as well take a breather.
Wade is scheduled to undergo a follow-up procedure on his surgically repaired left knee and will miss the rest of the season.
Wade will have a shock stimulation treatment later this week with a specialized machine referred to as an OssaTron, coach Pat Riley said after Monday morning’s shootaround at AmericanAirlines Arena. Heat team physician Harlan Selesnick will oversee the procedure, which is designed to increase blood flow in the knee and limit tendinitis.
After the procedure, Wade must refrain from weight-bearing exercises for 30 days. But Riley said Wade would be allowed to swim, ride a stationary bike and do other conditioning activities.
Wade’s status for the stretch run of the season had been in question since he quietly complained of significant soreness in the knee two weeks ago.
The only questions remaining for the Heat this season- How many games will they win for the year?(I’m betting 17 or under) and will they get the #1 pick in the next NBA draft?
