Dwyane Wade Intends to Play Despite Injury

The kneecap is moving, banging against the bone bruise, causing one of the best shooting guards in NBA history to average 11.3 points in a playoff series against his hometown team.

Dwyane Wade revealed information about his injured right knee late Monday that he probably would rather have kept private but was forced to divulge after taking a hit in the second quarter and going to the bench. Once there, team trainer Jay Sabol slid Wade’s kneepad downward to reveal a large bandage across his knee. Wade said after the game that the bandage was being used to stabilize his knee in a most unorthodox way — a field dressing of sorts for a basketball star.
