With a gimpy Dwyane Wade, the Miami Heat could be cooled later this spring

Perhaps this woman should kiss Dwyane Wade’s ailing knee.

Leading the best-of-seven series 3-1, Heat guard Dwyane Wade is questionable with a bummed knee for Wednesday’s Game 5 against the Chicago Bulls in Miami.

Although not requiring any additional MRI exams or draining, the 31-year-old Wade’s performance has been hindered by the multiple bone bruises surrounding the joint.

A nine-time All-Star, the 6-foot-4, 220 pound Wade is averaging a mere 12.3 points, 4.70 rebounds and 5.3 assists over seven playoff games.

When a healthy unit, Miami is undoubtedly the preeminent team in the NBA and destined to capture back-to-back titles in June.

However, as Wade grays and becomes increasingly brittle, the Heat can’t be considered surefire champions sans one of their stars.

LeBron James is one of the greatest players in the annals of the association and Chris Bosh is an elite force in the paint.

Still, after disposing of Chicago, Miami will prove vulnerable versus the Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs or Oklahoma City Thunder.

With the franchise’s all-time leading scorer a gimp, a lesser Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat could drastically cool and fail to reach their goals later this spring.
