Bulls' Wade out for season with elbow injury

Bulls' Wade out for season with elbow injury

Wade's team-mate Jimmy Butler missed 11 games in March 2015 with a similar injury, leaving Wade anxious after speaking to him.

In fact, there's some relief to to this, cruel as it sounds. There have also been questions surrounding coach Fred Hoiberg's lineup decisions, with Rondo right at the centre of everything once again. Wade will have to deal with his elbow injury. Maybe a trade of Butler on draft night this June will be a questionable life insurance payment. Wade will be out the remainder of the regular season.

The Chicago Bulls will be without their most experienced player as they fight for an Eastern Conference playoff spot. "It was just a lovely thing to watch", Rondo told reporters.

I seriously think I can shoot better than MCW.
"My job is to play and get confidence and lead". The thinking from Chicago was that Wade, though clearly on the downside of his career, could meld with Butler's all-around approach in creating a wing duo for the ages.

For one thing, most people expected Wade to sign a new contract with the Miami Heat, and probably finish his career in South Beach. An MRI Thursday revealed a small fracture and a sprain.

So many issues are lurking for the Bulls, too many to be wiped clean by grabbing the eight playoff spot and facing the Cavs in the first round, if they can manage that. Go the other way and have him heal the heel. Wade signed on a year ago to lead the Bulls and re-establish his roots.

According to National Basketball Association, with the Bulls at 32-36 and now sitting in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, as well as having lost six of their last seven games, the team's playoff hopes are looking as grim and as less likely by the day.

"I told [the training staff] I heard a 'pop, pop.' I said that yesterday", Wade told the media Thursday, March 16, according to ESPN. That is my concern, is that we are trying to make the playoffs and there are only 14 games left. Even as competitors - and we're battling right with Chicago - you want to see everybody out there right now.
