The NBA informed the Heat on Friday that Dwyane Wade can no longer wear his stylish bandages on the court.
Wade can wear the bandage beneath his left eye if necessary, but he isn't allowed to place any special logos or text on them.
"We have a rule that players are not permitted to display any identification [promotional or otherwise] during games on their body, hair, etc.," league representative Tim Frank wrote in an e-mail to the Miami Herald.
Wade wasn't surprised by the league's reaction.
"I don't really have anything to say. I expected it," he said through a team spokesman.
