Dwyane Wade suffers season-ending elbow injuries

Wade collided with the Memphis Grizzlies Zach Randolph in the game last night and said later that he "heard a couple of pops". He was spotted wearing the bum arm in a sling, giving Chicago fans a reason to think their season is practically over. Over his last five games, Valentine has averaged 9.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.6 triples. At 32-36 following Wednesday night's loss, the Bulls are now 10th in the Eastern Conference looking into the playoff picture.

We know this isn't the be-all, end-all for Wade because he said in training camp that winning a title was "unrealistic" for this Chicago team. Wade said if he's cleared by doctors he'll return to the playoffs, but getting to the postseason could prove hard without the services of the future Hall of Fame guard.

That figures to be a final blow to a team that has been in the midst of a full unraveling in the past two weeks. There are only 14 games left in the regular season, so every match is a must-win for Chicago.

Wade attempted to play through the injury, but was sidelined with less than nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of the game.

The Chicago Bulls will be without their most experienced player as they fight for an Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Even Dwayne Wade, Chicago hero is not immune. News about injuries is always tough, especially when it's the season, but as you guys can see, I'm already starting my rehab process.

"He asked me how long I was out, and I told him", Butler said. Sweeping those three games might just put the Bulls back in the No. 8 playoff seed. Wade, however, has said he holds no ill-will toward Rondo. The Bulls have actually been outscored by 3.4 points per 100 possessions with him on the court, compared to just 0.2 points per 100 possessions when he's on the bench, per NBA.com.
