Wade misses third straight game Monday at Brooklyn because of left hamstring


NEW YORK — Dwyane Wade is sitting out his third straight game Monday at Brooklyn because of a strained left hamstring.

Wade worked out before the game and coach Erik Spoelstra says the All-Star guard is improving daily, but the Heat will be "very judicious" about it so Wade returns at full strength.

Wade is averaging 19.8 points and 6.4 assists.

Danny Granger also was listed in the starting lineup in place of Luol Deng. Spoelstra said Deng hurt his wrist in Sunday's loss to Milwaukee when he landed on it, but had been getting treatment all day in hopes of playing.
