Dwyane Wade Injures Ankle as Miami Heat Struggle During 3-Game Losing Streak
The Miami Heat are struggling right now.
Forget the fact that they have lost three-straight games after falling to the Nuggets 117-104 Friday night in Denver, superstar closer Dwyane Wade had to leave the game late with a sprained ankle. X-rays were negative and nothing is broken, according to SunSentinel.com.
The Heat's 10-consecutive loss at Denver and third-straight overall means Miami is now 8-4 on the season, and currently in sixth in the Eastern Conference standings. The Heat are just 5-3 on the road this season.
Wade's sprained ankle means the Heat star can add another injury to his laundry list of them this season. Wade had missed three games previously this year with a bruised left foot, and apparently strained his calf on Wednesday against the Clippers, according to teammate LeBron James.
What Happens Next?
Can the Heat win it all without Dwyane Wade 100 percent healthy?
The Heat now fly home to South Beach to host their next five games, which will tip off Tuesday night against the San Antonio Spurs. Wade is hopeful he will suit up against the Spurs, according to SunSentinel.com, but it's too early to tell if he will play.
Miami will play eight of its next nine games at home, where it is 3-1 on the season. The Heat's next road game will be Jan. 25 against the struggling Detroit Pistons.
