Dwyane Wade Injury: 'The Biggest Thing Is Not Rushing Into Anything'

Dwyane Wade had knee surgery this summer after winning his second championship with the Miami Heat and last we heard, rehab was going well. In addition to that, Wade finds it important to really pace himself in returning to action. He doesn't want to rush anything, and with all that's at stake in terms of NBA supremacy, can't see the Heat wanting him to rush back either.

After all, this is the same knee that kept him limited in the playoffs this past season, when LeBron James clearly took the wheel in driving this team to a title. Wade, the ultimate professional, says he'll be ready to go when it's time.

Wade quote, via Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel:

"My biggest worry is to be ready Oct. 30. So, obviously, as training camp goes on, I'll work myself into it, as I continue to get stronger, as I continue to work out with my knee.

"I can't start really working out until the first week of September. I don't want to do too much. The Miami Heat understand it. They know it. But they know I also will be ready to go when it's time to go."
