Miami Heat G Dwyane Wade has been out since January 27th due to strained right hamstring but indicated today that he will return on February 20th against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.  Despite feeling as if he could have played in this weekend's NBA All-Star game, Wade opted to give his injury more time to heal.

"I felt like I could've played, but it wasn't the smartest thing to do," he said. "I look forward to after the break, coming back for the guys, getting a practice [next] Wednesday and Thursday and getting ready to play Friday, just getting ready to understand the last 30 games, we've got some good some basketball we have to play if we want to play further, in April and May."

"It's weird how things work themselves out," he said. "The first time, with my left hamstring, I missed seven games and my first game back was in the Garden. This time I miss seven games, and my first game back will be at the Garden. So it's weird how things work out, but hopefully we have the same results and that's a win."
