Miami holds out Wade against Hawks with sore knees

AP - Sports

ATLANTA (AP) -- Miami guard Dwyane Wade is missing his second straight game as he again rests his knees, leaving Ray Allen as the fill-in starter against Atlanta.

Wade said before Monday's game there is ''still a little soreness'' in his knees. Wade also missed Miami's 104-96 overtime win at Charlotte on Saturday night.

Forward-center Chris Andersen, who has missed the Heat's past three games with a right knee contusion, is active.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said guard Toney Douglas, who was acquired in a three-team trade on Wednesday and has yet to make his debut with the Heat, was working out in Miami.
