Miami Heat News: Dwyane Wade Expected to Miss 2015 All-Star Game
- Updated: February 10, 2015
Dwyane Wade will not play in this weekend’s NBA All-Star Game.
This means that Wade, who was set to make his 11th NBA All-Star appearance, will also miss Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“I could play (tomorrow vs Cleveland) but it would not be the smart thing to do,” said Wade.
Although the Heat could desperately use Wade’s 21.4 points and 5.4 assists per game at the moment, Dwyane and the Heat are thinking long term, and that includes a post All-Star break playoff push.
“We have a run to make after the All Star break to solidify a playoff seed,” said Wade after practice on Tuesday.
As for Wade’s replacement in the 2015 All-Star game, the three-time NBA champion is hopeful that Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Knight is chosen, according to ESPN’s Tom Haberstroh.
Also note that Wade was a full participant in today’s practice and expects to travel with the team tomorrow night against the Cavs.
