TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Dwyane Wade will sit out the Miami Heat's preseason game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night with a strained muscle in his left rib cage.
Wade was injured last Wednesday in an exhibition game against Orlando. He didn't play Sunday against San Antonio but traveled with the team to Tulsa.
Miami coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade has practiced the last two days, but that it makes sense to rest the star guard at least one more game. Spoelstra says Wade might play Thursday night when the Heat face the New Orleans Hornets in Kansas City, Mo.
Wade dressed Wednesday night and said before the game that if it was a regular-season game, he would likely try to play.
