MILWAUKEE -- Point guard Jason Williams missed Miami's game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night because of an abdominal strain, the team said.

Williams, averaging 10.2 points and 5.1 assists, did not dress in the last two games because of the injury. The team said Williams would be re-evaluated when the Heat returned to Miami.

Gary Payton was to start in Williams' place, Heat coach Ron Rothstein said.
