MILWAUKEE (AP) - Dwyane Wade was spending Friday getting treatment, and the Miami Heat are monitoring him ahead of Sunday's Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hasn't made a decision about Wade's playing status, preferring to wait and see how his guard feels after getting ``a couple of hours'' of treatment. The Heat didn't practice Friday.
Wade is still recovering from bone bruises around his right knee, which caused him to miss six games near the end of the regular season. Spoelstra says Wade is getting better, but he needs time. He also needs to avoid collisions, which is impossible with as physical as Wade plays.
In fact, Wade had one collision in Thursday night's 104-91 win in which he was hit in the knee, face and elbow.
