Dwyane Wade is back, Miami Heat is glad

Dwyane Wade is back on the hardwood for the Miami Heat.

Wade,  wearing a black sleeve to protect his dislocated left shoulder, brought hometown fans to their feet cheering when entered Miami's game againt Charlotte on Sunday with 3:58 remaining in the first quarter. It was the first time last season's MVP has played since suffering the injury on Feb. 21.

He scored his first point with 53.9 seconds left in the period, making the second of two free throws.

Wade has been rehabbing for about a month and returned to practice with the team last week. Dorell Wright was inactive, making room for the reigning NBA finals MVP on the active 12-man roster.

Wade was not available for comment before the game, and Heat coach Pat Riley said Wade would be a "game-time" decision.

"When he comes back, he's going to be a player," Riley said Sunday.

Shortly before taking the court for warmups, Wade was smiling broadly outside the Heat locker room as several teammates rubbed his head. After running onto the floor pregame warmup, Wade waved at a courtside fan who held up three fingers in a nod to his jersey number.

He missed 6 1/2 weeks  and 23 games -- and since season-ending surgery seemed like a viable option in the days immediately following the injury, the Heat had to have been thrilled to get him back so soon.

Miami held a walkthrough session about 2 1/2 hours before tip-off against the Bobcats. Wade participated in that and, shortly afterward, the team decided to place him on the active list for Sunday.

A week ago, Wade said he hoped to play in "a game or two" before the playoffs open on the weekend of April 21, but later suggested he would like to play in more games -- provided his shoulder responded well to practices and contact.

Without Wade, the Heat rallied from a team on the playoff bubble to one in control of the Southeast Division race; they entered Sunday three games ahead of reeling Washington for the division title. Miami was 16-7 since Wade got hurt, including a nine-game winning streak.
