NBA Finals, Game 5: Dwyane Wade 'Questionable' To Return With Hip Injury

Dwyane Wade suffered what is being called a hip contusion in the first quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals and according to Doris Burke, Wade's return for the remainder of Game 5 is questionable. 

Wade suffered the injury with about three minutes left to go in the first quarter after drawing contact with Brian Cardinal of the Mavericks. Wade fell to the court, and immediately was in pain. Wade exited the game with 2:57 to go and went straight for the locker room.

Wade did emerge back out of the locker room with around nine minutes to go, but was noticeably limping out of the tunnel.
