Dwyane Wade said that it isn't fair to put his health and ability to play at his highest level as the deciding factor in whether or not LeBron James remains with the Miami Heat beyond the current season.

"Just don't solely put it on me," Wade said, laughing. "That's what I'm saying. Don't put the X on me. ... There's a lot that goes into, so just don't say, 'If Dwyane Wade doesn't have the year that we're accustomed to, it's over.' "

Wade had a system of rest during the regular season in which he sat out games in order to stay healthy for the playoffs.
