Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has pulled out of the NBA All-Star game because of a hamstring injury that he suffered against the Milwaukee Bucks on January 27th.
Wade hasn’t played in the last six games and isn’t scheduled to go against Cleveland on Wednesday. After last night’s Miami game, Wade threw his support to Bucks guard Brandon Knight as his replacement.
Knight and Atlanta guard Kyle Korver are the likely top candidates to replace Wade. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will decide Wade’s replacement.
Knight is averaging a team-leading 17.7 points and 5.4 assists in 51 games.
