ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -Things keep getting worse for the reeling Miami Heat.
All-Star guard Dwyane Wade is still suffering from flu-like symptoms and did not fly Wednesday with the Heat for their game against the Southeast Division-leading Orlando Magic.
Starting forward Udonis Haslem (sprained left ankle) also didn't make the trip with Miami, which is already playing without injured centers Shaquille O'Neal and Alonzo Mourning. O'Neal will miss another week, at least, with a sore hip; Mourning's season ended last month when he tore a knee tendon.
``There are still guys out here that have work to do,'' said Heat center Mark Blount, whose team has lost 16 of its last 17 games. ``We are still going to play hard and compete. That's all we can do right now.''
Entering Wednesday, Miami is 9-34 this season, a stunning decline for the team that won the 2006 NBA championship.
Since winning that title, the Heat have gone 53-76 - with injury battles being a constant factor.
Wade left Miami's 117-87 loss to the Boston Celtics on Tuesday midway through the third quarter, with the Heat in a 35-point hole. He headed into the locker room just before the start of the final period for treatment and rest.
``He has been under the weather the last couple of days,'' Heat coach Pat Riley said.
Haslem - who was the only Miami player to start each of the team's first 43 games - sprained his ankle when he stepped on someone's foot in the second quarter against the Celtics, who blew out the Heat despite playing without Kevin Garnett (strained abdominal muscle) and Ray Allen (flu).
Haslem left Miami's arena Tuesday night wearing a protective boot, and the team isn't sure how long he'll be sidelined.
