Bulls G Dwyane Wade Set to Return Saturday Against the Nets

Out since mid March with a sprain and fracture in his elbow, Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade will return to the court Saturday against the Brooklyn Nets, completing a comeback that has seen him return to the court much sooner than anticipated. 

Wade likely wouldn't have returned this season if the Bulls didn't make a late run at a playoff spot without him on the court. Chicago enters Saturday's action tied for the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference with Indiana, one game ahead of Miami. 

For his part, Wade has had an exceptional first season in Chicago — averaging 18.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. He will be on a restriction of about 20 minutes Saturday, so Wade himself is not a fantasy relevant option. Though his return, will cut into the playing time of both Michael Carter-Williams and Denzel Valentine.
