Live Coverage on ESPN and ESPN3.com/WatchESPN
Wade missed the Heat’s last two games because of a bruised right knee, but took part in the team’s morning shootaround on Wednesday after receiving treatment in Chicago the last two days.
He told the media after the light workout that would “give it a go” tonight in the United Center, as the Miami Heat look to extend its winning streak to 28 games.
“I’m going to give it a go,” Wade said after shootaround. “I had two situations that I was dealing with and one of them is gone.
“The other one [knee], I’m still dealing with and it’s not going to go away today. So I’ll get back out there to play and see how it feels.”
Chicago Bulls, in the meantime, said despite media reports, Derrick Rose will not be making his season debut tonight, while Marco Belinelli and Richard Hamilton are also out and center Joakim Noah, who is still recovering from a foot injury, remains a game-time decision.
“Same, just taking my time and that’s about it,” Rose said, speaking about his recovery from his knee injury.
“Been the same way for a couple of months now.
“I really don’t know [when I’ll return]. Like I said, it’s in God’s hands.
“Every day I’m just waking up to try to be the best player, try and produce every time I step on the court, just try to get better as a player and who knows when.”
ORLANDO (Sporting Alert) – Derrick Rose took a step closer to return from injury after he took part in the Chicago Bulls team work on Wednesday.
Rose, who has been doing several non-contact drills in sessions in the past few weeks, has participated with his teammates in road session for first since tearing his ACL in late April.
“It’s good,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said, ahead of his team’s game at the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.
“He’s been around the whole time. You guys don’t see him as much as everyone else does, the team does, I should say.
“So I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. It’s the next step in the progression for him. He’s getting up to speed with everything offensively, defensively, his teammates.
“It’s just the next step, and he’s got to continue the things that he’s been doing and the team has to continue to focus on our improvement and our opponent and then at some point he’ll be ready to go.
“But he still has some time to go, everyone has to be patient, but it’s good to have him around.”
Rose is still involved in some rehab sessions and expected to be out for about six weeks, so Thibodeau will not commit to a return date for his All-Star guard.
“It’s when he’s ready,” Thibodeau said of rose injury return date. “So that’s not anything that has changed from the start of the season, it’s when he’s ready.
“It’s not going to be sooner, later, ‘this is the target date,’ it’s just when he’s ready. So he’s doing practice, the predictable contact in practice, the next step will be regular practice, then he has to be able to go through regular practice for a while. And then, if everything goes well, then he plays.
“But there’s no time schedule so it’s everything according to plan. It’s just the next step. There’s several steps he has to go through.
“There’s several more that he has to go through — so everything’s going well, nothing has changed.”
