After missing the past three games due to the birth of his infant daughter, Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade will be out at least one more week to remain and bond with his new child.

The newborn daughter is Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union’s first child together, although Wade does currently have three sons as well.
Based on the new timetable, the earliest Wade would be able to return would be on Nov. 20 against the Brooklyn Nets.
However, basketball is likely the last thing on Wade’s mind at the moment, and it wouldn’t be surprising if his time away lasts longer than a week.
The three-time NBA champion is putting up 14.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in 25.7 minutes per game this season.
