Hoiberg said Wade felt good this morning, but the two talked it over, and decided that rest was the best option tonight to keep him fresh for the remainder of the road trip. Chicago will have the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers to cap off their road trip on Tuesday and Friday.
Wade is averaging 18.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game this season.
