Dwyane Wade sitting Wednesday against 76ers

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Dwyane Wade will sit against the 76ers Wednesday night just to rest, Erik Spoelstra told reporters before the game.

The Heat are playing on the second night of a back-to-back, and though Spoelstra said there's no injury, he acknowledged Wade was a little sore after the opener against the Bulls.

Wade struggled with knee issues for a lot of last season which caused him trouble in the postseason. Obviously the Heat are trying to pace themselves a little bit better already.

The decision to rest Wade was not planned, Spoelstra said, but came this morning after Wade experienced a little soreness.

In the opener against the Bulls, Wade played 36 minutes and scored 13 points on 5-13 shooting.
