Dwyane Wade's Knee Rehab Going Well

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was forced to miss an opportunity to win a gold medal in London after undergoing surgery on his left knee on July 9. But Wade was in London to support his NBA brethren, according to an ESPN report, and spoke on both his surgery and his progress through rehab.

"I feel good. Rehab is going very well," Wade told The Associated Press. "I'm happy with it. I'm more encouraged than I was, obviously, when I knew I had to get surgery. So I'm happy."

Wade expects to be ready to go in time for the opening of the Heat's training camp, which begins in late September, as he begins to aggressively step up his rehab:

He started rehabbing almost immediately after surgery, first trying to build strength in his hip and knee areas. Around Sept. 1, he expects to do more intense training.
