MIAMI (AP) - Heat guard Dwyane Wade is being held out of Tuesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons because of soreness.
It's the fourth game Wade has missed this season. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade was feeling some soreness following Sunday's win over Charlotte. The team has been cautious with Wade as he recovers from offseason therapy to deal with knee tendinitis, one of several problems he dealt with down the stretch of last season.
Wade is averaging 18.5 points on 53 percent shooting this season for the two-time defending NBA champion Heat, who are off to the best start in franchise history.
