CHICAGO (AP) -- Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade missed Thursday's game against the Chicago Bulls because of an illness.

Coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade was "really feeling under the weather" and remained at the team's hotel. He also sat out Tuesday's game against Detroit because of knee soreness.

Forward Chris Andersen missed the game for personal reasons and is expected to rejoin the team Friday in Minnesota. The Heat play the Timberwolves on Saturday.
