Wade's knee problems continue

Wade, 30, missed 17 of 66 games last season. His left knee needed to be drained during the playoffs and eventually required suûlowed, averaging 16.9 points – his fewest since his rookie season – and making just 16.7 percent of his 3-point attempts. He has scored less than 10 points in two of the past three games.

"As he's recovering from the surgery in the offseason, he sprained his ankle, twisted his foot and jammed his finger," LeBron James said. "He's going to try to get healthy. I know it's affecting his play on the floor and I know he wants to play at the highest level. As his knee is getting better, he's banging other things. He will be smart about it. He'll be back."

Wade sprained his left foot when he landed on teammate Chris Bosh's foot in Houston on Monday. Wade returned after the injury, but was clearly limited. Wade had X-rays on the foot, and after testing it in a workout prior to the Clippers game, he opted to play. He missed all but two of his 10 shots and had nearly as many turnovers (five) as assists (six). "Is he 100 percent?" Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. "No. But he will never tell you that. Hopefully, he will be able to get healthier."
