Miami Heat News: Dwyane Wade Questionable to Play Against Memphis Grizzlies
- Updated: December 14, 2018
Memphis Grizzlies fans may not be happy tonight.
Dwyane Wade (illness) is questionable to play.
Goran Dragic (knee) has been ruled out.
In addition to the sour update on Wade’s status for the game, starting point guard Goran Dragic will remain out and not take the floor. The Heat will possibly be without two of their best guards in Wade and Dragic. Luckily, Tyler Johnson and Justise Winslow are both listed as probable for tonight’s contest versus the Grizzlies.
Winslow, who has been on a tear lately, is averaging 16.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game in the month of December this season. Earlier this week, the Duke University product recorded a career-high 28 points and seven rebounds against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. While Winslow is playing some of the best basketball of his career, it’s Wade who Memphis fans will want to see play.
Although the three-time NBA champion is nearing the end of his run in the NBA, the 36-year-old is playing stellar ball. Wade is posting 14.5 points and 3.9 assists per game this season. While those aren’t All-Star numbers, they’re very impressive for a veteran in his 16th year in the league. Furthermore, Wade has stayed healthy for the majority of the season so far.
Meanwhile, Dragic, who is dealing with a knee issue, will miss his 14th game of the season. When healthy, the point guard is putting up 15.3 points and 4.9 assists a game this season. Although the Heat want their players to be fully healthy, the lack of consistency has hurt the team get into a rhythm and produced a negative record of 11-16 so far this season.
