 MIAMI (AP) -Heat forward James Posey left Miami's game against Boston on Monday night with a sprained left wrist and shoulder, injuries that come less than a week before the defending NBA champions open the playoffs.
He did not return to the game, Miami's next-to-last of the regular season.
Posey got hurt in a collision with the Celtics' Rajon Rondo with 5:44 left in the second quarter. Both players were moving toward a loose ball, hit awkwardly and Posey fell hard to the court - immediately grimacing and grabbing his arm. He got up quickly and began walking around, but then left to be examined in the Heat locker room.
Posey is averaging 7.9 points this season, his second with Miami.
