Haute 100 Miami Update: Dwyane Wade to Miss the 2012 Olympic Games
by Victoria Lesce
After winning the 2012 NBA Finals, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade will be unable to play for the USA Basketball team in the London 2012 Olympics. The NBA superstar was advised by his doctors to undergo his second knee surgery. The procedure is to ail his left knee and will have Wade on crutches for only a day. Wade played in all 23 Heat playoff games despite his knee injury.
Wade’s ability to play in the Olympic was questionable due to his lingering injury and did not come as a surprise when the ‘Big Three’ member broke the news to USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo and Olympic coach Mike Krzyzewski. Although Colangelo and Krzyzewski are sad about the news, they respect Wade’s decision and welcomed him to come hang out with the team throughout the games.
If the procedure and healing process go according to plan, Wade will able to start training camp with the Miami Heat this fall.
