MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Dwyane Wade will not play in the Miami Heat’s game against the Atlanta Hawks.

The reason is because of mild knee soreness.

The Heat have been giving Wade sporadic breaks this season in an effort to not overly tax his legs. Coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade arrived at the arena Monday night ready and expecting to play, but that the team decided it was best to give him the game off.

Ray Allen is in the starting lineup in Wade’s place.

It’s been a whirlwind few days for Wade, who got engaged to Gabrielle Union on Saturday and was selected Monday as the Eastern Conference’s player of the week. He averaged 26.3 points on 60 percent shooting in a 3-0 week for Miami.
