Dwyane Wade got injured last night against the Utah Jazz in the game that the Heat could have easily won, yet they lost it. Heat were up by double digits and it seemed they were in control, but they once again played horrible basketball in the third quarter, which caused them to lose the lead, and eventually the game. This was the quarter where Wade got injured as his shoulder caused him to leave to the locker room.

Heat are already dealing with another shoulder injury, one of Tyler Johnson, who missed the game against the Jazz. Beside Johnson, Josh McRoberts is also injured and will most likely be inactive for the Heat's next game, in which they will face the best team in the league, Golden State Warriors. 

Wade's scoring average against the Jazz prior to the last night's game was 28 points per game and was higher than against any other NBA team. However, last night Wade scored only 8 points on horrible 3-of-17 shooting, which included 0-of-7 in the fourth quarter. Heat's shooting guard has missed only a single game this season and it was due to personal reasons, however, he may miss the game against the Warriors as he is listed as probable for it.

Considering they are facing off against the best team in the league, the Heat will need every bit of help they can get. However, they might miss a couple of key players due to injuries which could easily lead them to losing the second straight game.
