Dwyane Wade strained his left hamstring during the first half of the Heat’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night at Staples Center.

Heat trainers ruled Wade out for the remainder of the game, and the Heat’s starting shooting guard is doubtful for Wednesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors and Friday’s game against the Sacramento Kings. The Heat led the Lakers 44-34 at halftime. A series of injuries to various players has contributed to the Heat’s poor start to the season and this latest setback comes at a time when the Heat finally was beginning to show signs of improvement. The Heat defeated the Clippers on Sunday.

Wade played in 21 of his last 22 games before Tuesday’s injury. He missed seven games earlier this season with a strained left hamstring. He missed seven games last season with a strained right hamstring.
