Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade underwent surgery on his left knee Monday morning, and a source told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols that the procedure went well.
Wade had the knee scoped. It had been bothering him throughout the season, and he played with pain during the playoffs. Recovery time is six to eight weeks.
Wade had the knee drained during Miami’s second-round series against Indiana.
Surgery means Wade will miss the London Olympics. Wade had surgery on his left knee in May 2007. He led the Americans in scoring at the Beijing Olympics, averaging 16 points despite coming off the bench in all eight games.
