MIAMI – Saturday night's blowout win for the Miami Heat may prove to be costly on the injury front.
Guard Dwyane Wade left the game in the fourth quarter of Miami's 129-102 win.
Wade injured his hamstring on a drive to the basket.
The team officially called the injury a mild left hamstring strain.
After the game, Wade ruled himself out of Monday's game against Portland.
Wade talked about the injury happening right before the team took a west coast trip.
Wade said, "That's not ideal. I won't be in the lineup against Portland I can probably guarantee that. I have time to get treatment and like I said, take it day-to-day. I hope I'm not out to long and these things suck, no question about it."
The Heat play 3 games on the road.
Miami is at Portland on Monday.
After that, Miami travels to Sacramento on Wednesday and the Heat face the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday.
