 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Dwyane Wade returned to the starting lineup for the Miami Heat against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night after sitting out the previous game at Phoenix with a migraine headache.
Wade was listed at his usual shooting guard spot for the final game before the All-Star break for both teams. He said he woke up with a ''pounding, pounding headache'' after taking an afternoon nap Tuesday in Phoenix and alerted trainers.
Wade said he took medication and stayed back at the team hotel, listening to the game against the Suns in a dark room because the bright lights from the TV were bothering him. The Heat beat the Suns 103-97.
Wade said he experienced another strong headache after the team's flight landed in the San Francisco Bay Area late Tuesday night and took medicine that ''knocked me out.'' He said he woke up Wednesday morning feeling normal.
The 32-year-old Wade has experienced migraines at times throughout his career. He's averaging 18.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 36 games this season.
''If you've never experienced it before, you really don't understand,'' Wade said. ''There's just no rhyme or reason for it.''
