Dwyane Wade is getting treatment "around the clock" for his aching right knee, and Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said they'll wait until Sunday to decide whether the Heat star will play in Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks.

With a chance to sweep the series, something the Heat haven't done since LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Wade in Miami, the All-Star guard is sure to want to play. But with the outcome of the series almost inevitable — no team has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series — and so much of the playoffs left, resting might be the wiser option.

Bosh says it's a difficult call. But he and his teammates trust Wade to make the best decision for himself and the Heat.
