Report: Heat's Dwyane Wade Will Not Miss Playoff Games With Dislocated Finger

Miami Heat captain Dwyane Wade dislocated a finger in last night's loss to the Washington Wizards, but he isn't expected to miss any postseason play, according to head coach Erik Spoelstra. From Tom Haberstroh of ESPN.com:

Wade played less than three minutes of last night's 86-84 loss at American Airlines Arena. His left index finger was swollen, and he left last night in a splint, but X-rays were negative.

"I'm not going to cry about it," Wade told the Associated Press. "When I was sitting on the table before they could put it back in, the worst-case scenario was surgery, and the best-case scenario was this. Obviously it will be sore for a couple of days, but I'll be ready to go when the playoffs start, for sure."

Wade has started 49 of Miami's 63 games thus far this season, missing a handful with various injuries. He's averaged 22.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists per contest. The Heat (45-18) have three games left in the regular season before opening the playoffs next weekend.
