Dwyane Wade Calls Himself A Game-Time Decision Against Timberwolves

After news that the Minnesota Timberwolves would be without J.J. Barea for Friday's game against the Miami Heat, the playing field is leveled - slightly - by an injury on the opposing side. Dwyane Wade isn't sure if he's going to be in action for the game, with a lingering foot injury affecting his movement and shooting. Wade eluded to his status, via Ethan Skolnick on Twitter:

Wade calls himself a game-time decision.

He tested his ankle during a shootaround Friday morning, going through many of the motions several times over. He tried jumping up and down, driving to the basket harder than usual to see if the soreness prevented him from playing. He'll wait until just before the game to make a decision of whether or not he's risking a serious injury, or potentially playing in a significant amount of pain. This is actually the first point in which anybody had heard that Wade could miss the game.

Wade hit the game-winner in Charlotte on Wednesday.
