NBA Finals, Game 5: Dwayne Wade Heads To Locker Room In First Quarter

With under three minutes left to go in the first quarter in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade left for the locker room – wincing in obvious pain.

What exactly Wade hurt is unclear at the time – he was favoring either his hip or lower back en route back to the locker room. Wade was injured on an offensive series after drawing contact and falling to the ground.

It’s fair to assume that Wade will be back out for the second quarter, but the extent of Wade’s injury is unknown. Wade did leave the court under his own power, though, so I don’t think we’ll be seeing any Paul Pierce-esque dramatic return.

Mario Chalmers replaced Wade for the Heat.
