MIAMI (AP) -The Miami Heat did not re-sign forward Kasib Powell to a second 10-day contract Wednesday, ending his short stint with the injury-ravaged team.
Powell averaged 6.8 points in six games with Miami.
``I liked what he did,'' Heat coach Pat Riley said.
Also Wednesday, the team announced that Jason Williams has had the protective cast taken off his sprained right thumb, but Riley said the point guard still isn't able to play.
The Heat entered Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Hornets having already lost 182 man-games to injury, meaning they've had to reach into the NBA Development League to sign several players, including Powell, just to get through the remainder of the year.
Former D-League players Blake Ahearn and Stephane Lasme were re-signed to second 10-day contracts earlier this week.
