Wade may miss game

OAKLAND, Calif.—Dwyane Wade was a late scratch from the Miami Heat’s starting lineup against the Golden State Warriors last night because of nerve irritation in his left foot, leaving his status for the all-star game in doubt.
Wade sat out Tuesday night’s victory at Phoenix with a migraine headache but appeared to be in good spirits before Miami’s 111-110 win over the Warriors, chatting with reporters for nearly 10 minutes in the locker-room.

He was listed at his usual shooting guard spot and announced during pre-game introductions, but seconds before tip-off the Heat said he would not play.
Wade said he was travelling to New Orleans for Sunday’s game but isn’t sure if he’ll play.
“I’m not optimistic. I’m not pessimistic. I just want to get better,” said Wade, a 10-time all-star who was elected as a starter for the Eastern Conference this season.
Wade said he started to warm-up when his foot began giving him problems.
