​Dwyane Wade's getting to the age where he can't take too many hits anymore. 

He isn't the young man he once was. Sure, he's playing at level that makes him look like the same shooting guard he's been, but nobody wants to see him get hit. 

Going for a loose ball, Dwyane Wade crashed into Nikola Mirotic Monday, leaving him laying on the ground holding his neck. 


Neck injuries are never fun. Especially with an aging player. 

Luckily for the Bulls, Wade was able to continue. Jimmy Butler may be the man of the future, but Wade is still a contributor to the present. Without him, this team wouldn't even be sniffing playoff contention. 

Wade's age is getting up there, so they need to make sure the old man stays healthy.
