Dwyane Wade missed out last night for Miami Heat after a nerve irritation in his left foot ruled him out of their clash with Golden State Warriors. 

The consequences of the injury don't end there though, with Wade's participation in the NBA All-Star Game Sunday in doubt yet again. 

Heat's premier point guard has had a troubled season due to injury, with Miami's record suffering as a result. 

Wade is listed as the eighth best player in NBA history according to the player efficiency ratings, which means whoever will be without him will be significantly hurt as a result. 

It's also the fans that will miss out if Dwyane fails to make it out on court for the ASG on February 16th. 

Wade spoke after the game last night and revealed the extent of his current injury woes. 

'I'm not optimistic. I'm not pessimistic. I just want to get better,'' Wade told

''I started feeling a little something in my foot, getting a little numbness. But you don't think nothing of it. As time went on it started going up my leg a little bit, so the nerve going up my leg kind of shut down.

"Weirdest thing I've ever (felt). When I was out there and moved around and warmed up, I felt I couldn't feel my foot. So I didn't want to do anything.''
