Dwyane Wade Shut Down For Season

Multiple sources (1, 2, 3) this morning have confirmed the inevitable: the Heat’s franchise player Dwyane Wade will be shut down for the rest of the season to undergo treatment on his left knee.

The next question for fantasy owners is who should one pick up on the Heat? I like Ricky Davis a lot because he can do just about everything. In addition to that, he has been playing 40+ minutes recently because of the all the injuries Miami has sustained. Here’s a look at his numbers the last couple of games, tell me he doesn’t look like a good pickup with Wade out:

Ricky Davis (G-F)
Mar 8: 27 points [11-16, 5-7], 4 reb, 2 asst, 41 min
Mar 7: 10 points, 12 reb, 4 asst, 2 stl, 2 blk, 47 min
Mar 5: 16 points, 3 reb, 3 asst, 2 stl, 37 min

Another player that you might consider on the Heat is Marcus Banks (but he’s been bagned up and only played 10 minutes last game). If his hamstring gets better, I’d definitely look at Banks as well. He played well and hit 20 points two games in a row last week.

Happy waiver wire-ing. And as always, be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed.
