MIAMI -- Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade thinks his bruised left hip will not be an issue for Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Wade went through some of Miami's practice on Saturday, took part in the regular team shooting games afterward and pronounced himself fully fit for Sunday night's win-or-else game against the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas leads the best-of-seven series 3-2.

"He'll be ready to go," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

Wade was injured in the first quarter of Game 5, retreating to the locker room for treatment and staying in for a second round after halftime before returning to the floor.

He finished Game 5 with a team-high 23 points.

"This is just another day of getting treatment and getting rest," Wade said Saturday.
