Dwyane Wade is not playing for the Miami Heat on Sunday against the Charlotte Bobcats because of right knee soreness.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade has been dealing with the issue for several days and that the team believes a bit of rest and treatment will take care of the problem.

It’s the fifth game Wade is missing this season. He’s averaging 21.5 points on 52 percent shooting for the Heat, who took a 25-game winning streak into Sunday’s game against the NBA-worst Bobcats.
