Dwyane Wade May Sit Out Game Against Pacers

Miami Heat superguard Dwyane Wade is dealing with a lingering foot injury and did not participate in the team's shootaround today in advance of their game against the Indiana Pacers tonight.

Wade will be a game-time decision but those on the scene at American Airlines Arena have been tweeting that all indications point to Wade sitting out the game tonight.

From Tim Reynolds:

LeBron James says it's "looking like" Dwyane Wade won't go tonight.

From Brian Windhorst:

Dwyane Wade did not take part in shootaround because of lingering foot contusion. Will be gametime decision vs. Pacers tonight.

A gametime decision is just that. But Wade did not sound optimistic and LeBron does not expect him to play.

Won't find any complaints from me if Wade doesn't play. Teams are going to run into this situation all season where the rate of games forces a player to take off a game or two to tend to a lingering injury. If the Heat feel safe sitting Wade against the Pacers, fine. If you have any concerns about the value of the Pacers beating the Heat without Wade, shake yourself.

Every W is vital this year no matter when, where or how it is obtained and all analysis of said W's is purely for entertainment purposes. Wade or no Wade, the Pacers still have to play quite well to beat Miami and LeBron James.

Windhorst had some other good news for the Pacers, tweeting that Tyler Hansbrough expects to play.
