Dwyane Wade dislocated his left shoulder and is considering season-ending surgery to let it heal properly. If he passes on surgery, the initial estimate is that he will be out for six weeks.
Either way, don’t expect the defending champs to make the playoffs this season. The Heat was able to tread water without Shaquille O’Neal because they had Alonzo Mourning to replace him in the lineup. There is no one on the Heat roster that can do what Wade does, so Miami is in serious trouble.
