As he reveled in the joy of his third NBA championship, Dwyane Wade said early Friday morning that he does not believe his troublesome right knee will require surgery.

“There will be a few treatments, but it won’t be surgery,” he said. “A lot of rest is going to be key for them. I’m going to treat my knees very well this summer.”

Wade sat out the series-clinching Game 4 victory against Milwaukee in the opening round but said he never considered taking off any other playoff games.

“I’m about gutting it out,” he said.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said the injury was “a deep bone bruise. It just continually got re-aggravated.”

Wade topped 20 points in four of his final eight playoff games — including 23 points in Game 7 of the Finals — after going a career-long 12 games in a row without reaching that plateau.

“To have that kind of performance, help lead my team, it’s special,” he said. “So special.”

Said Shane Battier: “They tried to bury Dwyane, but he kept pushing open that coffin door.”

Wade sat on the floor outside the locker room for a few minutes after the game because “I just wanted to soak it in. We go through life so fast, and we never really get to enjoy moments.

“The championships that I’ve won seemed like they went past me so fast. I just wanted to take a moment and just soak in being a kid from Robbins, Ill., from Marquette University and now having three championships.”
