Wade has played in 48 of 64 games this season as the Heat have managed his minutes so they can have him fresh for the playoffs and a run at a third straight NBA title. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra did not say anything about Wade's status before the game. The Heat announced Wade would not play about 30 minutes before tip-off.
Wade last missed a game on March 3. He played 34 minutes Sunday against Houston.
The Heat have rested Wade in back-to-back situations. Miami is at Boston Wednesday night.
The Cavs are without All-Star Kyrie Irving and forward Luol Deng. Irving is out two weeks with a biceps injury. Deng has a sprained ankle.
