The Big 3 will not be making an appearance at the 2012 Olympic Games set to take place in London next month.
Although Lebron James and Chris Bosh will be taking their talents across the pond, Dwyane Wade has more pressing health issues to address.
The Miami Heat franchise player will not be apart of the Team USA in it’s bid for a gold medal due to his left knee which needs surgery.
The NBA champion made the call to USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski today [June 28] Thursday and broke the news to them.
“I’ve decided to listen to my doctors and get the procedure I need on my knee,” Wade told The Associated Press on Thursday.
“USA Basketball said I had to do what was best for me. They want me to be obviously as healthy as possible so I can continue to play this game at a high level. They were very supportive and told me if I ever want to come around the team, I’m welcome and that I’m part of the family.”
Wade alongside his doctors are in the process of scheduling the surgery.
We wish him a speedy recovery!
