Dwyane Wade (ankle) out Monday against the Blazers
Dwyane Wade will sit out Monday's game against the Trail Blazers because of a sprained ankle.
Miami announced pre-game that Wade is out vs. Portland.

Coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters at shootaround that Dwyane Wade is doubtful because of a sprained ankle suffered against the Celtics last week.
Wade played two days later against the Grizzlies, but the ankle has apparently been nagging him, so he'll likely rest it Monday night.
More than likely, with the postseason approaching, the Heat are just being extra cautious, particularly with Wade, to make sure the team is healthy and ready.
Wade has already sat 18 games this season due to a number of lingering injuries and issues. In 50 games, he's averaging 19.3 points, 4.9 assists and 4.6 rebounds.
