Heat's Wade out, Miller back vs. Pistons


Posted Apr 8 2012 6:17PM

MIAMI (AP) -- Dwyane Wade is out of the Miami Heat lineup Sunday night against the Detroit Pistons because of right ankle soreness.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Wade tweaked the ankle while missing a dunk Friday night in a loss to Memphis. Wade was on the floor when Miami was shooting during practice Saturday, and Spoelstra indicated the team waited until about two hours before game time to make the decision.

It's the 11th game Wade has missed this season with various injuries. The Heat entered 9-1 without him in the lineup. He is listed as day-to-day and will be evaluated again before Tuesday's game at home against Boston.

Meanwhile, Mike Miller was available to play Sunday for the first time since spraining his left ankle on March 10.
