Miami Heat lose Dwyane Wade for a while with a tweaked hamstring
It was great while it lasted -- which was roughly 57 minutes less than "The Decision."
Three minutes and 17 seconds into the most anticipated debut in the history of debuts, Dwyane Wade abandoned LeBron James and Chris Bosh and headed to the bench with a hamstring injury in the Miami Heat's preseason opener at AmericanAirlines Arena.
"It's a slight tweak of his hamstring. We'll reevaluate it in a week," Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said. "It was really an inconsequential play. Hopefully, it's not too serious. We'll still be able to move forward with the guys we have."
Wade said he thought might be sidelined a couple of weeks. "I just felt it pull," he said, "so I knew automatically it was a pulled hamstring. I was a little sore coming into the game, so I tried to do everything I could to make it go away. They'll get a lot of time to see the Big Three and our team play together. I'd rather have it now than have it later."
NBA GMs say Lakers will win title; LeBron won't be MVP.
Kobe Bryant says he'd beat LeBron James one-on-one.
D-Wade's team is now LeBron's team.
