He was held out due to what the team termed as a "sore left foot." Wade was originally named a starter before tip-off until the last-minute switch. He was replaced in the lineup by Toney Douglas.
It was the second straight missed game for Wade, who did not play Tuesday against the Phoenix Suns because of a migraine. This is the 15th game he has sat this season, with all but two being injury- or maintenance-related.
