Fantasy Advice: This is something that many people suspected while watching Wade struggle thoughout the playoffs. There aren’t any reports detailing the medical findings or upcoming surgery and it’s simply being described as a ‘cleanup’ procedure that will only require him to be on crutches for a couple of days. It doesn’t sound like it will be anything that should affect his 2012-2013 fantasy value. If anything, the extra rest that he’ll get from missing the Olympics will only help his performance next season.
