Dwyane Wade misses 2nd straight to rest knees
ATLANTA (AP) — Miami guard Dwyane Wade is missing his second straight game as he again rests his knees, leaving Ray Allen as the fill-in starter against Atlanta.
Wade said before Monday’s game there is "still a little soreness" in his knees. Wade also missed Miami’s 104-96 overtime win at Charlotte on Saturday night.
Forward-center Chris Andersen, who has missed the Heat’s past three games with a right knee contusion, is active.
Coach Erik Spoelstra said guard Toney Douglas, who was acquired in a three-team trade on Wednesday and has yet to make his debut with the Heat, was working out in Miami.
