Dwyane Wade Injury: Updates on Heat Star's Leg
USA TODAY Sports

Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade was taken to the locker room during the third quarter of the Heat's Christmas day matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

According to the Heat's official Twitter page, Wade is expected to return to the game.

 

Wade had 10 points, five rebounds and three assists before being helped to the locker room following the injury.

Heat fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief as Wade was able to eventually return to the game and didn't appear to miss a beat. The return of the guard should be reassuring for the Heat as he isn't likely to miss any time and the original diagnosis of a leg cramp appears to be correct.

Despite concerns that Wade may be aging, he continues to be a key cog for the Heat. He's logging 32 minutes, 19.7 points, 4.6 assists and 1.3 steals per game.

Wade has played in 21 of the team's 26 games and his health will be a key factor for the Heat as they attempt to gain the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference this season.
