Dwyane Wade sitting Wednesday against 76ers

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.
