Tyronn Lue had said that the plan was to play him tonight and give him the second night of the back-to-back tomorrow against the Wolves off but the illness changes things. The team has been cautious with him as he is playing just 23.3 minutes per contest this year. J.R. Smith will see more minutes in case Wade misses tonight’s game while Derrick Rose could also return to the rotation but both guys are too inconsistent to trust.
Update: Dwyane Wade will play on Tuesday, will sit out on Wednesday.
#Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said Dwyane Wade, who missed shootaround with an illness, will playing tonight against Magic. Slated to sit out 2nd night of back-to-back tomorrow at home vs. Timberwolves
