Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade said he will play tonight against the Chicago Bulls after missing the previous two games with a sore knee, reports

The Heat certainly have not needed Wade this week as the team is coming off Sunday's 109-77 rout over the Charlotte Bobcats and a 108-94 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday.

The Heat have won 27 consecutive games and are within seven games of breaking the NBA mark, set by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.

Wade has had problems with his knees the past few seasons. He underwent arthroscopic surgery last year to repair damage in his left knee after dealing with pain during the Heat's run to a NBA title last season and it caused him to miss the Olympic Games in London where the U.S. team won the gold medal.
