Heat G Wade day to day with bone bruises

The SportsXchange

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is getting treatment for his sore right knee and his status for Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks is not known.

Heat Erik Spoelstra told reporters Friday that Wade is still recovering from the three bone bruises that kept him out of six games near the end of the regular season.

"Structurally, his knee is as good as it's been in years," Spoelstra said. "That's why we're treating it day to day. This was a bone bruise. What it needs is time and it gets better. But what it also needs is no collisions."

The aggressive-playing guard played through the soreness during Thursday's victory over the Bucks that gave Miami a 3-0 advantage in the best-of-7 series.

"It's getting better, but he plays a physical game," Spoelstra said. "He's fighting through it and some days are better than others. It depends on the collisions he has from the night before."

Wade scored just four points Thursday on 1-of-12 shooting, but he also had 11 assists, nine rebounds, five steals and two blocks.
