NBA Finals, Game 5: Dwyane Wade Returns To Game With 4:33 To Go In Third Quarter

Dwyane Wade checked back into Game 5 of the NBA Finals with just under five minutes to go in the third quarter after remaining in the locker room after halftime. 

Wade injured his hip in the first quarter driving to the basket when Brian Cardinal attempted to take a charge, forcing Wade to the ground. Wade suffered a hip contusion on the play.

Nobody ever said the Miami Heat were short on drama - and Wade entering and exiting the game just provides more of that for the Heat.
