It could be a day before you see Dwyane Wade in action again. It could be a week. It could be a month. Because at this point, we just don't know because the Heat aren't giving anyone any clues.
Wade sprained his ankle Friday against the Nuggets and called it the worst he's ever had while also dealing with a bruised foot and a calf strain. He's beat up and via the Sun Sentinel, there's no timetable on his return.
Despite sustaining what appeared to be a nasty sprained right ankle Friday against the Denver Nuggets, and despite Wade having yet to return to practice, coach Erik Spoelstra refused to put a timetable on his star guard's return.It seems that Wade would at least be missing Tuesday's game, but the question is if he could sit out extended time. The Heat are good without him, but better with him. Miami needs him in May, not January, so it's obviously wise to take it a bit slow. Still, the Heat are still working on sorting out late-game chemistry and offense issues, so every game Wade sits is less time to work some of those things out.
Asked at Monday's practice if Wade has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs, Spoelstra said, "Every day, I'll reevaluate and we'll go from there. There is no timetable on his injury right now.
"We're not going to get into specifics and try to lay down a timetable. There is no timetable of when he'll be back."
