Heat's Wade back in starting lineup at Nets


Posted Nov 1, 2013 8:00 PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Dwyane Wade is back in Miami's starting lineup against Brooklyn after sitting out the Heat's loss in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Coach Erik Spoelstra stressed Friday there was nothing physically wrong with Wade, just that the Heat were being "proactive" in sitting him in their second game in two nights. He said Wade will not sit a game every time they have a back-to-back.

"Dwyane feels great," he said. "He's strong, he's fit."

Wade, who battled knee problems last season, said he wanted to play Wednesday but agreed with Heat trainers that sitting out was the "smart thing."
