Wade at shootaround, expected to play in Game 2 Monday

After Dwyane Wade missed Sunday’s practice due to a migraine headache, there were questions about if he would play in Game 2 Monday.

Yes he is, according to a tweet from our man Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.

Dwyane Wade at shootaround today, so it looks like a go tonight despite the migraine, but those tinted shades might make a return.

Wade took some grief from his teammates — cause of the look — and from the league because of the dark tint when he wore the glasses before. (The league did not allow him to wear glasses dark enough that opponents could not see his eyes.)

Glasses or no the Heat will take him. Wade had 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting in Game 1 but made several key shots down the stretch to help secure the Heat win. Game 2 is set for a 7 p.m. tip in Miami.
