Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is currently rehabbing his knee and should be ready to participate in basketball activities in about six-to-eight weeks.

In an interview with WQAM's Big Dog on the Joe Rose Show, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade says that his injured knee is healing well and he should be ready to participate in basketball activities in six-to-eight weeks.

The knee is doing good. Thanks for asking. I'm feeling well. I am on the 6-8 week plan before I really start getting back to the basketball court, so I am coming up on that soon and I'm excited to just try to get back into the groove before training camp comes.

Wade had surgery on his knee back in early July and missed participating on Team USA at the 2012 London Olympics. The knee had been bothering him during the playoffs, but despite that, he refused to use that knee injury as an excuse as to why his performance wasn't as good as it could be.

That's not me. That wouldn't be me as long as I play this game. We all play with things. We all play with various injuries in every sport. You have to. If you don't you are not going to get respect from your peers

The hope is that Wade will be ready to go come training camp. Wade wants nothing more than to be ready to defend the Heat's championship and if he is healthy, there is a good chance the Heat can repeat.
