Description: Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has signed a deal to stay with Miami.
Insight: A healthy Wade would be a fantasy stud with LeBron James back home in Cleveland, but fantasy owners will have to weight what a "part-time" Wade is worth. He's likely to continue the strategy of not playing any back-to-back games to save his gimpy knees.

Description: ESPN's Tom Haberstroh thinks the Heat should have Dwyane Wade come off the bench next season.
Insight: Of course, that's assuming Wade stays in Miami. Remember, Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh can all opt out of their contracts this summer. Haberstroh's suggestion makes plenty of sense. Miami's second unit didn't contribute very much this postseason and at age 32, it would be wise to scale back Wade's minutes. Of course, the decision is up to Erik Spoelstra, who has only used Wade as a reserve once in six seasons.

Description: Miami guard Dwyane Wade blew up for 23 points in Saturday's win over the Pacers.

Description: Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade had another efficient game Tuesday against the Pacers.
Insight: Wade converted ten of his 16 field goal attempts for a team-high 23 points. He's been a beast over his last three games, averaging 26 ppg on impressive 61.5 percent shooting. Erik Spoelstra's decision to rest Wade at the end of the regular season seems to be paying off.

Insight: After coasting through the first round and a half, Wade has been brilliant over his last two outings, averaging 27.5 ppg on 61.1 percent shooting. Lance Stephenson said before the series that Wade's knee wouldn't hold up but it looked just fine in Game 1. We'll see what Wade does for an encore Tuesday in Game 2.
