MIAMI -- A day after sitting out of the Miami Heat's preseason opener to rest with sore legs, Dwyane Wade has no plans at this point to routinely skip regular season games to help preserve his health. Wade practiced Tuesday with the team and then pushed through an extensive workout on the court with the coaching staff afterward that focused on his post game. Working on his conditioning in a controlled practice environment is a higher priority for Wade than participating in preseason games. The star guard decided about an hour before the start of Monday's 92-87 victory against the Atlanta Hawks that he wouldn't play despite coach Erik Spoelstra listing him as a starter moments earlier.
