Miami Heat star, Dwyane Wade announced today that he will definitely appear in Sunday's All-Star game despite missing time this season with an injury.
Wade has only started 35 games this season for the Heat and missed Wednesday's win over the Golden State Warriors with a foot injury.
However the now 10-time All-Star appeared on NBA.tv to reassure fans that he would make an appearance.
"I'll be fine, it was a weird thing that happened but I'll be out there Sunday to give my fans what they want."
Wade has been selected to every All-Star game since his breakout season in 2005 but has struggled with injuries throughout his career.
Joining Wade in the game will be Heat teammates LeBron James and Chris Bosh as well as championship contender rivals Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Paul George.
Wade's latest injury was described by the player shortly before tip-off on Wednesday as 'drop-foot' and he was forced to miss the entire game despite being slated to start.
The player's list of injury problems this year have included knee issues, back pain and migraines.
The Miami Heat will hope that Wade does not endure further injury trauma as they march towards a third championship in three years.
