The Chicago Bulls can kiss their hopes to reach the Playoffs goodbye. Dwayne Wade's season-ending injury is the nail in the coffin and will finally end the charade in Chicago. The Bulls had high hopes entering the season with the acquisition of Dwayne Wade and Rajon Rondo. But the results didn't match the expectation as the team never seemed to get along.
Dwayne Wade's injury happened during a match against the Memphis Grizzlies. Wade exited the game after getting tangled with Zach Randolph in 23 minutes of playing. Wade heard his elbow popped during the scuffle and was forced to wear a sling after as reported by CBS Sports. Subsequent examinations show dad Wade suffered a bone fracture with some ligaments torn that will force him out of the season.
With 14 games left in the season, the Chicago Bulls are likely out of the playoffs without Dwayne Wade. Dwayne Wade is currently averaging 18.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. It will be hard for the Bulls to find someone else on their roster to shoulder Wade's departure.
With the season ending injury of Dwayne Wade, the Chicago Bulls' future remains uncertain. It's obvious that their current roster even with the addition of two all-stars isn't working. And with Dwayne Wade nearing the end of his career, it seems likely that he will go elsewhere once the season is over.
The Chicago Bulls signed Dwayne Wade to a 2-year $47 million contract in the offseason but has a player option on the final year of his contract. This means Wade has the option to enter free agency after this season. And from the looks of it, Wade is likely to opt out as reported by Yahoo Sports.
With Dwayne Wade entering free agency, expect several teams to be interested in acquiring the 3 time NBA champion. But at this stage of his career, Wade will only consider teams that are close enough to win the title. These teams include the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and maybe the Clippers. Then again LeBron James had a dream of forming a super team with his friends. Maybe this will be the start of it.
