Dwyane Wade to miss fifth straight

MIAMI -- Heat guard Dwyane Wade missed his fifth consecutive game Tuesday night with a sprained right ankle, sitting out Miami's matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cleveland rookie Tristan Thompson, who is sidelined with a sprained left ankle, will also miss the game.

Wade remains listed as day to day and will travel with the Heat to Detroit for their game there Wednesday. The Cleveland game was the eighth he's missed this season, including three earlier this month with a sore left foot.

Cleveland coach Byron Scott says Thompson's condition is improving and that he will be listed as questionable for the Cavaliers' home game against the New York Knicks on Wednesday.
