  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Nuggets.
    Advice: This will be Wade's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and given how tricky hamstring injuries can be, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 36-year-old miss at least a few more games. At this juncture in the fantasy season, it's tough to justify hanging onto injured guys. As a rather low-upside player, Wade can be cut in most places. Justise Winslow and Wayne Ellington will pick up the slack in his absence.
  • Wade (hamstring) will miss a fourth straight game Monday.
    Advice: Wade got the 8,000th field goal of his career in the first half Saturday against Washington, but left less than a minute into the fourth quarter with what was diagnosed as a mild strain.

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday against the Lakers.
    Advice: He's 36 years old and he was discouraged about his hamstring injury back on Saturday, so Wade is probably going to miss more time. With him out, Justise Winslow and Wayne Ellington have been effective in the second unit while Tyler Johnson's minutes are much safer.
  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday against the Kings.
    Advice: This will be his second game off after the injury on Saturday. After Saturday's game, Wade had a fairly ominous tone to say he thought he was missing time, so he could miss the rest of the week. It'll be a team effort to replace him, especially with Josh Richardson unlikely to play now.
  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) is listed as out on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. Sacramento.
    Advice: Wade was unable to play Monday after straining his left hamstring Saturday night. This is merely a game-notes designation, but we should have a complete update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If Wade is confirmed as out, Wayne Ellington, Tyler Johnson and Justise Winslow should soak up additional minutes.
  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will sit out on Monday vs. Portland.
    Advice: He said on Saturday that he wasn't expecting to play, so at least his owners had time to find a backup plan. With Wade out Monday and possibly longer, the trio of Goran Dragic, Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson are locked into heavy minutes, and we should also see more of 3-point specialist Wayne Ellington. Justise Winslow is also looking at a bump in playing time.
  • Wade got the 8,000th field goal of his career in the first half on Saturday, but left less than a minute into the fourth quarter with what was diagnosed as a mild left hamstring strain.
    Advice: The Heat have a six-hour flight to Portland on Sunday, in advance of a game there Monday. Wade will probably be held out.

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) said he doesn't expect to play Monday in Portland.
    Advice: "These things suck," he said. Maybe he pulled his muscle on the last play of the third quarter, but either way this is rough news. His fantasy owners may not want to wait this out, so dropping him is probably the move. Wayne Ellington, Tyler Johnson and Justise Winslow gain some value.
  • Dwyane Wade left Saturday's game against the Wizards with a mild left hamstring strain.
    Advice: That's good news that the team is calling it mild, but hamstring strains really can linger. Wade took the last shot of the third quarter and he looked fine in the process. He also didn't have a limp as he went to the locker room and the Heat were up 108-76, so it doesn't look like he'll miss extended time. If he is out, that's more run for Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington and Justise Winslow. Rodney McGruder would get in the rotation, too.
