MIAMI -- Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was inactive Friday night against the New Jersey Nets because of a right wrist injury.

There's a good possibility Wade will also miss Saturday's game at Orlando, coach Pat Riley said.

"It will always be a game-time decision, because he has played with this before, so he has the experience of it being sore," Riley said. "But this time it was a little bit more sore than it has been in the past. We'll just have to deal with it."

Wade was hurt Wednesday in a loss at Chicago. He's averaging 27.5 points and 7.8 assists for the defending NBA champions.

Jason Kapono started for Wade on Friday.
