MIAMI (CBSMiami) – USA Basketball is trying to keep the roster of NBA pros together heading into the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. After losing Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, and Dwight Howard to injuries, Heat superstar Dwyane Wade is sounding less than 100 percent sure he will play.
“I told them, I said, ‘Listen, I’m just going to see how I feel,” Wade said according to NBA.com. “This is about being health – I think for all of us, going into the summer healthy – and taking it from there.”READ MORE: Miami Proud: Architects Team Up With Middle School For A Creative Course in Opportunity
