MIAMI (CBS4) – A sore foot Saturday kept Miami Heat center Zydrunas Ilgauskas from playing  against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Ilgauskas accidentally stepped on a nail at his home several days ago, getting punctured through his shoe. The injury was mild at first, and Ilgauskas played Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers without problems, but by Saturday he had an infection.

The infection became evident Friday and he was ruled out for Saturday.

The Heat hope he can be available Monday against San Antonio.

Ilgauskas is averaging 5.1 points and 4.3 rebounds this season for the Heat.
