Heat's Wade sitting out Hawks' game with cold


Posted Nov 9, 2012 7:06 PM

ATLANTA (AP) -- Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is sitting out Friday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks because of a cold.

Coach Erik Spoelstra announced before the game that Wade remained at the hotel. The team is beginning a six-game road trip and doesn't want him spreading his cold to the rest of the team.

Spoelstra isn't sure who will start in Wade's place, though Mike Miller is a possibility. Ray Allen is another possibility, but the coach likes the way he's playing off the bench.
