Wade tells The Associated Press that his left knee was swollen ``like a coconut'' after a collision with San Antonio's Manu Ginobili in Game 6 of the finals. It was drained the following day, then was swollen yet again when he woke up on the morning of Game 7.
Wade played nearly 40 minutes in the season's final game, scoring 23 points.
Wade also says that he received platelet-rich plasma therapy late in the regular season to combat bone bruises in his right knee.
