Dwyane Wade has failed to play at least 70 games in four of the last five seasons and because of an injury, this year’s tenure with the Chicago Bulls is cut short once again.
Wade fractured his elbow in the game against the Memphis Grizzlies and will miss the rest of the 2016-17 season. The Bulls said an MRI revealed the fracture. Wade was injured in the fourth quarter of the game against the Grizzlies on Wednesday night after he collided with Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph. After the game, Wade said he felt his elbow pop.
Wade averaged 18.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in his first season with his hometown Bulls. But the homecoming has been marred by a 32-36 record that has the Bulls out of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference amid discord in the locker room.
The Bulls have lost seven of their last eight games.
