Dwyane Wade has been plagued with chronic knee issues. He’s undergone several different treatments as well as rest and now says he’ll be ready to go for opening night. Read more after the jump.
After almost two months away from the game, it’s time for Dwyane Wade to get back to work.
Wade revealed to reporters on Thursday that he underwent the OssaTron shock treatment about one month ago, opting not to undergo major surgery. This marks the second time that Wade has undergone the OssaTron procedure; he missed the final 21 games of the 2008 season after having it done.
Despite the treatment and long layoff, Wade expects to be ready for the season opener on Oct. 29, when the Heat host the Chicago Bulls. Wade went through his first workout on Thursday night ahead of Heat training camp, which is set to begin on Oct. 1.
“I won’t be ready for opening night when training camp starts,” Wade said. “But I’ll be ready for opening night when opening night gets here.”
