In courting Rashard Lewis during free agency, #Heat suggested he undergo a process called OssaTron on ailing knees
Miami guard Dwyane Wade had it in March 2008, and it enabled him to bounce back from knee problems in the summer and win an Olympic gold medal while being Team USA’s leading scoring.
The process involves shock waves. It’s a non-surgical treatment the Heat believed could get Lewis, 33, back to at least somewhat resembling a player who was an All-Star in 2005 and 2009.
“They just numb the knees basically like ultrasound,’’ Lewis said. “It breaks down a lot of the scar tissue and it kind of rebuilds it. It took me off the court for a couple of months… (The Heat believed) it was something that could really help me and get me back on the court playing at a high rate, and I told them anything that would help me be even a little bit better than I was the past season, the past couple of years, I’m willing to try.’’
