5 Bold Predictions for the Miami Heat’s Final Stretch

4. Dwyane Wade will play in at least 75 games this season.

Dwyane Wade Miami Heat

It hasn’t been done in a while but it would be very impressive if Dwyane Wade could in at least 75 games this season. At age 34, with a history of injures, many did not think Wade could play more than 60 games and would sit out on certain nights of back-to-backs this season. Instead, the 13-year guard has played in 60 of the Heat’s 66 games and has proven everyone wrong (again).

The last time Wade surpassed 75 games was in 2011 (76), before his 2012 knee surgery. Since then, the shooting guard has failed to play 70 games in a season and has missed over 25 percent of the team’s games over the last two years.

If the future Hall-of-Famer plays in the Heat’s final 16 games, he will have played 76 games this season, the most since 2010 when Wade was putting up 26.6 points a game. A towering endeavor, Heat fans will probably want the team’s leading scorer rested and fully ready for the playoffs. However, Wade not needing to miss even a week due to injury is a positive sign heading into the postseason and something everyone should appreciate.
