Dwyane Wade out for rest of regular season due to elbow fracture

Bulls Game Notes For Wednesday vs. Memphis

Wade was ruled out for the regular season with an elbow strain and fracture, the Bulls announced Thursday.

According to National Basketball Association, with the Bulls at 32-36 and now sitting in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, as well as having lost six of their last seven games, the team's playoff hopes are looking as grim and as less likely by the day.

And if we can get it over with sooner than later, maybe that's for the best. In explaining why he went to Chicago over his chief other suitor, the Nuggets, Wade pointed to his roots in Chicago and his ability to help his hometown.

Wade may no longer reside in Miami, but one thing is for sure: he will forever be a Heat lifer.

But an odd "miscommunication" between Wade and Pat Riley drove Wade elsewhere. With Wade out, their playoff chances took a big hit, but they still have an All-Star in Jimmy Butler and the Wizards can't overlook this team on Friday night. Wade, however, has said he holds no ill-will toward Rondo.

They did. And whether they expected it to or not, it worked. Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg said that the team will continue to make a postseason push. The Bulls have actually been outscored by 3.4 points per 100 possessions with him on the court, compared to just 0.2 points per 100 possessions when he's on the bench, per NBA.com.

Dwyane Wade's career in Chicago has likely come to an end, after what will eventually be remembered as 1722 embarrassing minutes with the franchise.

Exhibit A is Rondo, who has been fantastic in his two starts after being relegated to a reserve role since December 30.

Marc Gasol and Mike Conley scored 27 points apiece to lift the Grizzlies to their second straight win after dropping five straight, beating the Chicago Bulls 98-91 on Wednesday. He averaged 19 points in 74 games last season after missing a combined 48 contests due to various injuries the previous two seasons.
