Dwyane Wade could sit until playoffs

Dwyane Wade said Sunday that he wouldn't rule out the possibility of missing the remainder of the season to rest his right knee. Still recovering from soreness and swelling in his knee, Wade has missed six of the last eight games for the Heat.

From ESPN's report:

"The most important thing is to be healthy," Wade said Sunday, addressing the media for the first time since he last played March 29. "So when I feel it, then I'll get back on the court. Obviously, I want to play. But I have to make sure that I'm right. You have to get healthy."

After injuring his knee, Wade missed two games before returning to the Chicago game that ended the Heat's streak. He played against against New Orleans, but experienced setbacks during both games.

This is the second straight season Wade has battled a knee injury heading into the playoffs. Resting his knee before playoffs to avoid a repeat of the troubles last year is his first priority.
