That means that we will be robbed completely of a matchup of two of the best shooting guards in the NBA in Dwyane Wade and Manu Ginobili, who is out for an extended period of time with a hand injury.
Wade has been hampered by injuries throughout the year, but the specific one keeping him out of this game will be ab ankle injury. But missing this contest, and by the sound of that tweet perhaps the next handful of games, it will give Wade an opportunity to rest up and get completely healthy before returning to the lineup.
