Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade clarified a tweet he sent out on Thursday night, which expressed his displeasure with a three-hour wait the team's bus experienced while attempting to enter New York City in anticipation of Friday night's game against the New York Knicks.

With the city still reeling from Superstorm Sandy, avenues of transportation have been impeded by structural damage as well as the volume of individuals trying to travel. After posting the tweet, Wade received a great deal of criticism and promptly deleted it. He then tweeted that he meant to say that he didn't believe the game should be played due to the amount of people and families affected by the storm.

Friday night's game will act as the season opener for the Knicks, as the team was originally scheduled to start the season on Thursday night against the Brooklyn Nets. It was supposed to be the first game in the history of the newly constructed Barclay's Center.
