Chicago Bulls News: Update Given on Dwyane Wade’s Injury

Dwyane Wade

Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade was declared out for the season after injuring his right elbow against the Memphis Grizzlies on March 15.

But with the Bulls looking more and more likely to grab a playoff spot, the question of a potential playoff return for Wade still lingers.

The team offered an update on the three-time champion’s injury today, announcing he has begun to workout and that they are optimistic about his return, though no target date has been identified as of yet.

Wade has been averaging 18.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game in his first season with his hometown Chicago Bulls.

The Bulls are currently on a four game win streak and have gone 6-3 since Wade has gone out, one of the strongest stretches of their season so far.  Chicago is 38-39, putting them in control of the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference, with the chance to go as high as fifth.

Rookie forward Paul Zipser has been starting in Wade’s place, and the Bulls have been playing strong ball ever since inserting the red hot forward Nikola Mirotic into the starting lineup in place of Bobby Portis.
