Done for the season, is Dwyane Wade also done with the Bulls?

NBA Phoenix Suns at Memphis Grizzlies

Wade suffered the injury when his arm got twisted during Wednesday's game between his Bulls and the Memphis Grizzlies. The good news for Wade is that he will not require surgery and that there is a slim chance he could return for the playoffs if the Bulls were able to pull off the improbable feat.

With the season ending injury of Dwayne Wade, the Chicago Bulls' future remains uncertain.

Wade, who's averaging 18.6 points per game this season, said he will play in the playoffs if the Bulls make it and he's cleared by doctors. That will not be easy, as the Bulls are 32-36, 10th in the East and a game behind the Detroit Pistons and Miami Heat in the standings.

This wasn't supposed to be the scenario, of course, although when Forman and Paxson signed Wade and Rajon Rondo and traded for Robin Lopez last summer, they created a boom-or-bust situation.

Dwyane Wade was born and raised on Chicago's south side.

The 35-year-old Wade certainly isn't what he once was.

"And I think getting that confidence and then going out there, he came right in the game firing it up".

Despite the doom and gloom that surrounded Thursday's practice for the Bulls, there was a sliver of optimism about the whole situation from Wade. "Hey, remember that season Dwyane Wade played for the Bulls? Ha". The Bulls is in the verged of uncertainty to make the playoffs and the confidence, spirits and morale of the team were also down. Denzel Valentine, Jerian Grant, Michael Carter-Williams, Paul Zipser and maybe even Anthony Morrow are all options to see more minutes.

Wade said he heard a pop when going for a rebound in the third quarter. He's passing much more frequently when he drives and the Bulls are producing fewer points per Butler drive as a result (which is a nice way of saying Butler's teammates stink and it's better when he takes it himself on drives).

Successful never really took shape in Chicago, as the Bulls remained a volatile bunch loaded with behind-the-scenes intrigue, nonstop trade chatter and wild inconsistency, leading to their current stretch of six losses in seven games.

The Bulls reportedly have had a contentious locker room all season.
