MIAMI (AP) -Heat center Shaquille O'Neal was not in the listed starting lineup Friday night when Miami hosted the Orlando Magic, one day after getting treatment on his sore hips.
It was O'Neal's first missed start in 30 games this season.
Point guard Jason Williams (sore left knee) also wasn't in the starting lineup, although both players were included on the active roster.
Earl Barron made his first career start at center for Miami, and Dwyane Wade was slotted to start at point guard instead of his customary shooting-guard spot.
Backup point guard Chris Quinn (left ankle) was inactive for the Heat, who are also without Alonzo Mourning - who's lost for the season with a knee injury - and point guard Smush Parker, who hasn't played since late November over an altercation with a female parking attendant.
