When Dwyane Wade fractured his elbow on March 15, many thought he would not play another game in 2017. At the time, Wade was ruled out for the regular season, and the Bulls were struggling. What a difference a few weeks make. Wade could return as early as Saturday against the Nets; the Bulls are currently tied for the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference, and Chicago has won five out of their last six games.
According to Wade, he is ahead of schedule. Getting Wade back can’t hurt. If the Bulls can get to the playoffs, maybe Wade and the Bulls could scare one of the top seeds in the East.
"I'm ahead of schedule. I continue to work..I'll see how I feel tomorrow. As a player I want to get back on the floor." @DwyaneWade
