Why TNT is not televising Dwyane Wade’s final home game with Heat

Dwyane Wade Heat

The final days of Dwyane Wade’s NBA playing career are coming to a close, giving fans limited chances to watch him play.

The Miami Heat only have four games remaining — road games on Friday, Sunday and Wednesday, and a home game on Tuesday. Wade will be honored with a ceremony prior Tuesday’s home game in Miami against the 76ers. There was some thought that TNT would televise the game, but they are not doing so and instead will have a double-header featuring Boston-Washington and OKC-Houston.

According to The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, the reason TNT is not televising the Heat game on Tuesday is because it doesn’t work timing-wise.

The Heat-Sixers game is scheduled for 7:30 pm ET on Tuesday. Jackson says Miami wasn’t able to get the Rockets-Thunder game pushed back from its 9:30 start time, nor could the Heat game be moved to 7:00 pm due to the Wade pregame ceremony.

Sunday’s game at Toronto will be on NBATV, which will be the only one of Wade’s four remaining games to be nationally-televised.
