ATLANTA (AP) - Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is sitting out Friday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks because of a cold.
Coach Erik Spoelstra announced before the game that Wade remained at the hotel. The team is beginning a six-game road trip and doesn't want him spreading his cold to the rest of the team.
Spoelstra isn't sure who will start in Wade's place, though Mike Miller is a possibility. Ray Allen is another possibility, but the coach likes the way he's playing off the bench.
