ATLANTA (AP) -- Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem is sitting out against the Atlanta Hawks because of an ailing left shoulder.

Haslem said before Wednesday night's game that his shoulder began
hurting about a week ago after a stint in the weight room. He
aggravated the injury Tuesday when he fell on his shoulder during a
loss to Oklahoma City.

Haslem said he
wanted to be on the court but the coaching staff decided to play it
safe. The Heat hope he will play Friday at Toronto.
