08:39 AM ET 02.15 | Dwyane Wade's mysterious foot ailment will not keep him out of the All-Star Game, but the Heat's shooting guard isn't going to be playing heavy minutes on Sunday. Wade spoke with Pacers and East All-Star coach Frank Vogel on Friday to clear up any lingering confusion about Wade's role in this his 10th All-Star game. He will be more of an All-Star spectator for the NBA's midseason exhibition than an All-Star participant. "I told [Vogel] I'm going to get out there and have a little fun, but I'm going to sit down," Wade said.

He shouldn't even be playing in that game.

Why risk playing in a game no one cares about when it can give you a chance to get healthy

Fans voted him in and now he will make an appearance. Seems reasonable to me.

Kobe won't even be there for him to hammer.

Why should this game be any different. He hasn't played much in most other games.

Yeah no **** but I guess maybe I looked at it too hard it's not like there's defense or it's competitive so that lessons risk of injury greatly

So Wade has only played in 36 of Miami's 51 games & is averaging less than 20 ppg for the first time since his rookie year. He has no business playing in that game tonight.
