Dwyane Wade's health is concern No. 1 for Miami entering the season. So anytime in the preseason he plays and has a solid showing is a big win for the player and the Heat.
He put up 14 points on 50 percent shooting, along with five rebounds, an assist and two steals.
This isn't to say Wade had a perfect game (he turned the ball over five times). He still has a ways to go before being ready for the regular-season opener on October 29. However, he did say that he felt better after this game than he did his previous preseason game, according to Skolnick.
While he doesn't look like the D-Wade of old just yet, progress is progress.
