ATLANTA -- All-Star guard Dwyane Wade missed Friday night's 115-111 win over the Atlanta Hawks because of soreness in the back of his left knee.

Wade described the pain as "just a little uncomfortable." He said he will have an MRI on the knee on Saturday.

"I gave it a couple days to see if it would go away," Wade said. "It didn't, so I just want to go back and get another, second opinion. But it's nothing I'm overly concerned about. It's just some soreness I haven't felt in a while, so I just want to make sure everything's good."

Wade's injury left the Heat with nine healthy players Friday night.

"Obviously it's never a good time," Wade said, "but if you say there's a bad time, this is a bad time."

Guard Gerald Green moved into the starting lineup for Wade.
