Heat coach says no guarantee Dwyane Wade plays in season opener

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he is going to be patient with guard Dwyane Wade during training camp as he recovers from knee surgery and there is no guarantee Wade will play in the team's season opener, reports the Miami Herald.

Spoelstra said Wade would be limited in training camp. Wade had surgery on his knee July 9 causing him to miss the 2012 London Olympics in London where the United States won the gold medal.

Wade said in August that his knee was healing well and he expected to participate in basketball activities in six-to-eight weeks.

“He’s not 100 percent," Spoelstra said. “So we’re going to be very vigilant on how we progress him.”

The Heat open training camp on Saturday and will open defense of their NBA championship October 30 at home against the Boston Celtics.
