The Chicago Bulls announced Thursday that Dwyane Wade has a small fracture in his right elbow that will keep him sidelined for the rest of the 2016-17 regular season. The Bulls are hovering just one game below the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference entering play Thursday, with only 14 games remaining.
Wade was averaging 18.6 PPG with a 19.2 PER (both the lowest since his rookie season). The 12-time All-Star was shooting a career-low 43 percent from the field with only 3.9 APG (career low) in his first season in his hometown of Chicago.
ESPN's Kevin Pelton notes that the Bulls have actually played better with Wade on the bench this season. With their 35-year-old guard now out of the lineup but still within distance of a playoff spot, how do you think the Bulls should approach their remaining games?
