Miami Dwyane Wade spent Sunday throwing a surprise party for 75 patients at Miami Children's Hospital, and shot baskets with some kids. When a boy named Fabio missed, the ball ricocheted off the rim and hit Wade's left shoulder.
"Sorry," said Fabio, a tube regulating his flow of medicine coming from his hand.
Wade smiled and didn't even flinch. The dislocated shoulder is healing nicely, and nearly six weeks after the injury threatened to end his season, the reigning NBA finals MVP is ready to return to practice with the Miami Heat.
Wade said he'll be back on the practice court with the Heat today.
