Miami Heat News: Dwyane Wade Slated to Return Sunday vs. Knicks

2 Min Read

After a seven-game hiatus due to injury, it appears that Dwyane Wade is ready to make his return.

Ira Winderman of The Sun Sentinel reports that Wade should make his return on Sunday versus the New York Knicks after missing the last seven games due to a hamstring injury.

The Miami Heat have struggled in the absence of their star player, going just 3-4 after starting out the season 5-3 in the games Wade has played in. The 32-year-old shooting guard is averaging 19.8 points per game on 50.8 percent shooting to go along with 6.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds.

Wade injured his hamstring on a layup versus the Indiana Pacers on November 12. While the veteran guard has stated his intention to return Sunday, there is no official decision regarding when Wade will exactly return.

Winderman also reported that Dwyane had participated in explosive drill work on Wednesday with point guards Norris Cole and Shabazz Napier.

The Heat will take on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden at 7:30 EST Sunday on Sun Sports.
