The focus for Dwyane Wade in coming weeks is promoting his memoir that was released Tuesday, "A Father First: How my life became bigger than basketball."

The focus for Miami Heat fans is a bit more specific, and during the start of his marketing campaign, the All-Star guard offered encouraging news in that regard.

Appearing on "The View" at the start of his book tour, Wade was asked by host Barbara Walters about the left knee that required July 9 arthroscopic surgery.

"I'm doing great," he said. "I'm ahead of schedule. The knee's OK, so I'm ahead of schedule."

Wade began court work last week with assistant coach David Fizdale, posting a photo of that session on his Twitter account.
